If the Walls Could Talk series Vol 2 #25-28

November 23, 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.

The only trees, planted no doubt for shade and windbreak, are those surrounding the old homestead. A house, a barn, a few small buildings meant to house chickens and other animals. Wood grayed and splintered.  If I quiet myself, I can hear the cock crowing in the early morning, and the snorting of pigs in the pen awaiting breakfast slops.

Neighbors would’ve helped had they known the old man was sick. Did his best to keep it from ‘em. Couldn’t abide charity.

Reins his horse in on the low rise above Pa’s ranch. Place hasn’t changed much since he left. Now it’s his. Wishes he’d come back a little sooner.

Whole town’s in the barn. Fiddle and harmonica music carries off into the night. He steals glances at the girl. She peers through her lashes across the dance floor at him. He wants to know her name. Imagines a few minutes alone with her outside in the moonlight.

I love your images: the subject matter, the compositions, the processing. Excellent work.
