YESTERYEARS

 

I always do a double take when I pass an old abandoned house and quite often will stop and take it all in.  Usually the mood of the place will sweep over me and I think what a wonderful record of times past. Some feel haunted and sad to me while others seem to hum with joy. The one’s that are boarded up seem to be crying out wondering at their desertion. Exploration is always respectful and I’m very mindful that people somewhere must still own the property. Sadly most seem to be just standing, waiting their eventual fate. My absurd imagination loves to concoct a story about each and every one of them. It’s been an adventurous summer and such a pleasure photographing these forgotten remnants of the prairie past.

Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.” ― Beryl Markham,

Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.”
― Beryl Markham,

I could feel the sadness...Silent seconds grow into years...

I could feel the sadness…Silent seconds grow into years…

This house seemed surprised at being left behind...

This house seemed surprised at being left behind…

 

Open the door...let's party..

Open the door…let’s party..
