If the Walls Could talk series # 53-56

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 41-44.

Up before the sun breaks the horizon. Go to bed when it’s too dark to see. Spend the hours in between plowing and sowing seed. Watching the sky. Praying for rain.

Fiddles and banjos enough to shake the barn. Everyone in their Sunday best.  Only the oldest among them sitting out the dance.

She listens for the children. Moves slowly from room to silent room. In a moment she’ll remember the stones under the old cottonwood beside the creek. Her heart will break again.

Grown so old they can barely see each other.  Side by side, he still takes her hand in his.
