More old farm houses

4 posts in this topic

I guess I am attracted to these old houses since I live in a 100+ year old house in a rural area, and I love the history. I drove down to Sioux Falls today from Cottonwood, and was determined to finally take a picture of this house before it fell down.

This house was a happy find while giving my hubby rides so he could move equipment this afternoon. On the back roads I was driving down, my van was almost attacked by a goose protecting her goslings - all of whom were running down the center of the gravel road! It was pretty funny. No geese or minivans were hurt during this excursion.

Handheld and cropped.

Now that second image in particular is a total winner in my book. Great comp, with the horizontal lines of brown grass, green grass, green trees and blue sky setting off the blockiness and diagonal roof lines of the old house.

Did you get in close for any detail work? I've had a couple commissions shooting old farms and other buildings, and the emotion that can be drawn from detail shots is sometimes surprising.

Excellent work here!

Thanks!

The only way to get up there was a really soggy looking field road. I didn't want to chance getting the minivan stuck - which had almost happended earlier. That whole area is pretty wet right now.
