The ride home

2008.06.13

I spotted this house on the way to the Outer Banks. I wanted to photograph it on the way home, so I saved the location in the GPS so we could find it again. Yay for electronic gadgets!

I wanted to get a closer look, but the property was fenced off. This was as close as I could get. I was a bit disappointed, as I would love to photograph it from the back. I know the upstairs back wall was pretty much gone, as you could see the sky through the front window.

Another "happy accident." We spotted a sign for a nature preserve, so we pulled off the highway onto a gravel road. We traveled down the road a good ways, but the only nature we saw was a couple of turtles in a ditch. I liked the lines of the crop rows, so I just lazily took this shot out the side window as we drove by.

At first I was mildly disappointed that it was so out of focus (I know, not very realistic of me). However, after looking at it again, it kind of reminded me of a Monet painting. I guess you could call this Impressionist Photography.

Shameless, I know. :)

????? Those broken and abandoned houses make me so sad. I want to fix them up and fill them with love and laughter again.

Gorgeous shots.

Did you put the curves in the rows or did some farmer go crazy with this combine? :)

Madoc Wow! That house is creepily (!?) amazing!!!
Superbly photographed too. Of course, it had to be B&W. SUperb.
And I agree, that second shot is very interesting and beautiful.

I like the blurred effect in the last shot, and I'm faving the first one.

I do agree with you about the second shot though - it is pretty great! The crop lines make it very fantastic :)
