If the Walls Could Talk series Vol 2 # 45-48

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.

Runs her gnarled hand over the fabric of the quilt. Like her, worn now with age. Each square a story. Lives and loves gained and lost.

His work. How he treats women, children, animals. That’s the worth of a man. Rest of it doesn’t much matter.
