This is another shot from my photo excursion this past weekend. On a whim, I decided to turn down a farm road that led into a small neighborhood. This is the first house I saw and I took it as a good sign of things to come. It was daylight but the sun hadn’t yet risen over the horizon. The exposure was one second and the wind was really blowing, hence the blurred trees in the background.

    Love the sense of isolation and decay. I also feel it’s been forgotten, igonored and abandoned. Very moody photo. Nice job.

    Thanks for your recent mail – i’m now sold on RAW – another great shot – the subject is really intriging. I love old derelict things like this – pity i rarely find things like this.
