Welcome

Peek Inside


Well, it does say “No Trespassing” but…

I don’t know if I can resist this one. Plus, I’m a pretty good climber (if you know what I mean). 😉

Instinct Paid Off (I always find treasure when I take that left turn.)

This is why I take those left turns:

I find wonderful old buildings like this one.  The barn  in the photograph below is located on the property with the old shack with the freezer (which you can see peeking into the right side of this image).


I opted not to look inside the freezer.

Damn! Where Are My Snake Boots When I Need Them?! (Part Three)

You’d think the vines from those windows yesterday could have reached out and yanked me right in.  I think they did in a way.  I can’t seem to pull myself away from this place!

Here are a few images of the outside and inside of what I suppose was the main barn.  I can only imagine that a storm must have done the damage we see here.

And again in color (except for #4 because it just doesn’t work in color), for comparison:

I’ll also include the images in color for comparison, although I prefer the black and white.  The sun was blazing when I took these shots, and so the images in color appear washed out to me (but of course the colors ARE washed out in reality, so I guess the color images offer a more realistic version of these buildings.  I didn’t have my daylight filter on hand at the time of this shoot, and so could only rely on exposure compensation, etc.

There is something quite disconcerting and admirable, at the same time, about the force of the vine.


Damn! Where are my snake boots when I need them?! (Part One)

I came to a screeching stop when I caught a hint of this dilapidated gem off the road yesterday. I was in no way dressed for the adventure, but couldn’t pass up the chance to take some shots, which I’ll be posting over the next few days.  Although it might not be clear from the images, there are three structures on this site–a large barn,  a smaller building (a house, perhaps?) and a tiny shed, all clustered together.  Fabulous vines and trees have taken over the property, devouring the buildings bit by bit, kindly sharing the premises with a small clan of ferrel cats.
