Keep Out

In between packing up, tying up loose ends & running last minute errands... I scheduled in a little "photo field trip" with one of my fellow art students. We set out with no particular agenda... just to drive around & photograph whatever we found interesting. The theme for the day turned out to be old dilapidated houses...


I've always loved old structures like this~ ever since I was a little kid. Note the "keep out" sign on the right. There was also a fence & "no trespassing" sign, which made it difficult to get as close as I would have liked.


Having a zoom lens helps a bit, but not quite enough to pick up all the wonderful textures of peeling paint and moss growing on the roof & siding.


I wonder how long this old house has been standing... whether it will soon be demolished, or if nature will simply continue to take it's course...

The house is hopeless, but it is in a beautiful setting with the roses and wild purple vetch!

ooh I nearly missed this . I would have been drawn to this house too. I love the vibrancy in the colours here. I often go on photography missions with my daughter too. I guess because I have got so interested in her projects, I'm also looking at things as a photograper would now, and seeing the beauty in the world like never before.

I love that last photo! It's just begging to be painted! Of course, I don't paint a lick, but if I DID, I'd want to paint it!

That red against the green of the landscape really pops.
