Desolation IV by DanteSangreal Desolation IV by DanteSangreal
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
Located in Preston, Idaho. Built in the late 1800's. I saw this house from road and (with permission) hiked across a horse pasture to take the photo. I have no history on this building (note me if you do I'd love to know)...

I like the empty places, but even more I like to find the things we leave behind in these places, cast-offs of our lives. There is something in these that I think Ambrose Bierce would appreciate...

It is like many of the old houses, barns, and out buildings I find all around South Dakota. Love shooting them and seeing the ones others shoot and share. Thanks for sharing this one.

I've been interested in old abandoned places. This one looks interesting - bet it was hard to keep warm during the winter...

I imagine so, the old houses weren't always insulated well, or sometimes not at all. I remember doing a remodel of an old house built in the late 20's, and inside the walls we found wads of old newspaper sheets of packed beavers fur and wads of cotton or wool. When they ran out of one they simply moved to the next cheapest and so on, parts of it had nothing.

I have plans to visit the old Lone Ranger and Gunsmoke sets over in Kanab, as well as pay a visit to the ghost town Grafton and once again back to Silver Reef, so more are coming...

I'd suggest a little more contrast. Totally raw texture doesn't always display the most emotion.
