This post isn’t about knitting. So if you are purist you can stop reading right now if you like and get back to your knitting.
I figured since it is the weekend I could take a wee break and put up something a bit different. And by different I mean you already know that I love photography, but this is not about knitting.
When we first purchased our house there was an old, abandoned farmhouse across the street. And by old I mean quite possibly one of the oldest houses on the street ie: the original farm house for when our area was farmland. Talking to the neighbors I learned that it had been abandoned for at least 20 – 25 years, the time since the two old ladies who lived there passed.
After we had been in the house a couple of years the property was finally bought by a developer. The house sat on around 3 acres so they decided to plow it under, parcel it up and put in a few McMansions (as an aside they planned on 6 but could only get zoned for 3 so the end result was 3 big houses with big yards as opposed to 6 big houses on teeny yards). The imminent doom of the house prompted me to go over there with my camera and take some photographs.
Obviously there was no electricity and the windows hadn’t been cleaned in forever, so most of the light was heavily filtered or came in through the holes in the roof. But I managed to get a few interesting shots and now I am sharing them here for the first time.
Now I know that these aren’t the pretty, pretty pictures that you have seen from me, but I thought I would share them anyway. For me photography is a complex subject that can challenge as well as entrance. And I find it interesting to see how distinct my two “styles” of photography are. If you have made it this far thank you for indulging me, if you have any thoughts I would love to hear them.
