If the Walls Could Talk series #49-52

January 22, 2019  •  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 49-52.

Set on a foundation of stone to preserve her walls, she holds the secret of marriage marks, the scent of hay bales lingering in the wood. The memories of horses and cows. If we’re still enough, if we’re quiet enough, we hear milk hitting the pail in the coolness of the morning.  The jangle of a harness. The scraping of a rake.

Started provin up the homestead in 1912. No runnin water till ’27.  Power when we put up a windmill in ‘46.  Sons took up runnin the place after that.
