About five miles north of Alpine, Texas this house sits abandoned and alone. I have passed by many, many times over the years. Each time I have tried to photograph it, but I could never come up with an image that I felt in my heart, portrayed it as I felt. I was getting quite frustrated with the scene, and myself.
Last week, again there it was again as I headed north towards the Davis Mountains. For some reason or other, it felt different. I stopped the car, got out, and composed the shot as I had done so many times before. I probably stood in the same places. But apparently the light was different, maybe it was a different time of day, but I felt that this time I finally got it right. Below is the result. I hope you like it. Photographed with my Canon 7D, with EF 24-105mm f4 L IS AF lens. Settings ISO 100, 1/400 sec., at f8. Color and light adjustments made in Photoshop CS4.
Have a look, enjoy. Click the image for an enlarged image.
