If the Walls Could Talk series 61-64

January 22, 2019  •  1 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.

Rattlers make their way in sometimes.  Best to kick at the door and make lots of noise before going in.

Farmed the land right up to the day his heart gave out. Walls held up now by nothing but memories.

I have been enjoying your series. Not only are you recording the beauty and sadness of these old structures, but you do so beautifully.
