The Stark House
Photographer: Brian Scott
Taken: December 23, 2008
Caption: The Stark House
Additional Description:
Watch an old building with anxious
care; guard it as best you may,
and at any cost, from any
influence of dilapidation. Count
it's stones as you would jewels
of a crown; set watches about it
as if at the gates of a besieged
city; bind it together with irons
when it loosens; stay it
with timbers when it declines;
at this tenderly, and reverently,
and continually, and many a
generation will still be born
and pass away beneath its shadow.
John Ruskin
