Abandoned in the Palouse

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 27 June 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

A very cool old house with wheat planted all around it. The owner's daughter talked him out of bulldozing the old place. Kids tried to start a fire inside which caused the No Trespassing posting. Luckily, the old house is very close to the road.

It looks like the little house on the prairie. It's lovely these simple houses from a distant time. They still held up well despite the time.

Très jolie composition et le ciel chargé accentue l'effet laissé par cette maison en décrépitude.

Superb panorama that takes the viewer across this abandoned location in great detail. I like how I have to scan the scene and then my eye linger on the wooden house to contemplate its history and fate.
