If the Walls Could Talk series# 85-88

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 85-88.

Picks wildflowers everyday when they’re blooming.  Walks up the hill in back of the house.  Lays them gently at the foot of her stone.

Word came the gold was played out. Men left like the valley was on fire. He stayed on. Worked his own claim. Scratched out enough to get by.
