If the Walls Could Talk series #45-48
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 41-44.

Didn’t expect much, and she didn’t get much. Five acres and a fallin down cabin no bigger’n a chicken coop.
