This Old House

I’ve driven past this house (not sure if it’s abandoned, historic or whatever) more times than I can count but that’s to be expected as it sits next to a busy U.S. numbered highway that runs from Jacksonville, Florida to Mackinaw City, Michigan. I didn’t know that bit of information until I researched it right before writing this post… who knew!

It kept calling to me to be photographed all this time but as it is on a busy highway, pulling over would be neither wise nor safe. It is surrounded by quite a bit of what I think is farmland and occasionally I have seen horses out in the field next to it. I have no idea where the hay bales come from so perhaps some part of the land is occupied; it is a well tended to property.

This day I had my camera with me, DH was driving and the traffic was just the right amount of congested to allow me to roll down the window and get a quick snap at last. Will share it in color next.

    We think this kind of motiv looks better and more mysteriously in BW. It’s an ideal house for an Agatha Christie murder mystery, isn’ it?
    All the best.

  3. I’m glad you were able to capture it! I know the feeling; I tend to see the most beautiful or intriguing things while I’m driving, with no time or space to pull over. Seize that inspiration when you can!

    • Thank you. I’d still love to get a better front on shot (and I’d be ecstatic to get right on the property but that probably will never happen) but that’s how it goes sometimes with photo subjects… so near but yet where can you pull over LOL

    I enjoyed that scene! Looks good in B&W. Wonder why the big round hay bales are in the front yard?
