If the Walls Could Talk series Vol 2 #9-12

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.

Likes early morning chores best. Before nonsense has a chance to set in. Sound of horses grinding oats. Window light throwing rays over the stalls and dust like frost crystals in the air. Barn cats waiting their share of the milk. Everything as it should be.

Took the tin pot from the stove. Filled his cup with muddy coffee and moved to the window. Fog finally lifting.

Winter soot darkens the whitewashed walls. The pine floors.  She’ll scrub it all down with vinegar soon as it’s warm enough to open the windows.
