Got Wood?


I knew that title would get your attention!

Hey now...

Usually while driving by the little abandoned cabin out in Perkensville, we stop to take pictures because abandoned buildings are like Velcro to a photographer (not that I'm counting myself as a huge photographer at the moment...but, you know what I mean) Plus? Abandoned old buildings are just cool to look at...

I'm usually in some weird Western fantasy in my head about the who's, why's and what's of this place. It is in the absolute middle of nowhere...then again, it's so incredibly beautiful out there, well...why not live out there?

Inevitably the times I've been out there (yes, all two of them) I stop to take pictures of the wood on the cabin. It is soooo cool...all knotty, textury and paint peely...



It just draws me in....all that wood.

Then again...I can't help but think it is exactly what my house is going to look like if I don't save up the money to paint it soon...

So, I guess it's sort of a good thing that I'm drawn to it...

Sigh.

I too have always been drawn to abandoned buildings... theres just something about them that seems to be saying its story of the years past...

You have been talking some beautiful pictures lately. I'm really impressed.
