I’ve stalked out this public soccer field several different times before finally capturing an interesting composition with long late afternoon shadows.

Abandoned Home

Abandonment is what first drew me back to photography. While I enjoy exploring many genres, my eye is always drawn to the ironic beauty found in decay and neglect.  See my “This Ole House” gallery for more examples of my work exploring abandoned homes.

For Lent this year, I’ve committed to turning my thoughts and desires away from material wants and instead focusing on the simple things in life that truly sustain happiness.

Fading Family Farm Landscape

Old Barn on Moore Rd Composition 1

When originally built, I suspect this barn was used to maintain a variety of crops for the family and local community. Now the barn is only used to store a tractor, used to cut grass now growing in former crop fields. These old barns and family farms are quickly disappearing from the rural American landscape.

Cheers,

Driving the backroads usually has a payoff for the adventurous, but patient photographer. This tobacco barn was a welcomed reward after a long dry spell traveling through rural Ashe Country, North Carolina last fall.

Cheers!
