If the Walls Could Talk Photo Series 5-8

May 07, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I've made hundreds of images over the years of old abandoned homesteads, houses and barns. I am intrigued, not just by the buildings, but by the lives of the people who may have lived and worked in them.  I often imagine a story, a scenario of what might have been inside these crumbling walls, giving breath once again to the people who called it home. These are my stories, brief glimpses into the past. Continuation of series, images 5-8.

Eight years old when I started workin' down the mine, that be four years now. Dark when Ma sends me and Pa off. Dark when we see Ma's candle in the cabin window.

Water for drinking, cooking, laundry, bathing. Seems we spent the whole day hauling buckets. Didn't appreciate it much till the well ran dry.

He walked away several years ago and simply never returned. So when the tree fell on the cabin in the woods it didn’t make a sound because no one was there to hear it. (sorry, couldn't help myself, lol)
