Old House near Wooldridge, Missouri

When I went to university in Canada, there was a drive we would sometimes do when someone had a car -- out to the coast down roads past what once were prosperous farms.

On the hillsides, overlooking wet fields and grey muddy inlets of the sea, often in freezing damp wind, stood houses like this one.

Fractured planes of weather boards, bright red roof. Another candidate for the sketchbook.

You know I lived in Missouri for a while and one of my friend's grandmother lived in a house just like that. It was amazing.

That's such an amazing house. You never see anything quite like that here!
