  1. Great image! I’m a sucker for places like this. There is something about photographing either abandoned buildings, farms, houses etc.

  4. The tree on the right is what draws my eye. Old buildings, not so much. 😦 Once again I’m probably the odd man out (not at all unusual), but derelict buildings suggest decay and neglect to me. I can’t quite wrap myself around the appeal there.

    • It seems that the tree is dead, as well…and probably does have a very rich history, too…I think that’s what I enjoy about the old buildings, etc…the lives that were lived in them…that kind of thing.

  6. They’re all wonderful – I think I like the B&W, the cloudy panorama & the sepia best. I guess the cloud banks tend to roll over that mountain in a similar way pretty often? It’s a great setting.

    • Thank you, Lynn…it was fun watching the photos come to life in their separate phases or looks…and the images were all made within minutes of each other, so the clouds just happened to be a relative constant on this particular afternoon…I was walking up and down the fence-line along the freeway trying to capture different perspectives….

    I like all the images (except the B & W which, now I’ve seen them all together, is not so appealing, even though I liked it when you posted it).
    This one looks very wintery and everything looks tinged with frost.

    • Thank you, Victoria…I enjoy viewing them all together…helps me identify the characteristics that I prefer and gives me ideas for other shots….

  8. Gunta got me asking myself what the appeal really is with abandoned buildings. I think it is the list of questions they come with: who lived there, when did they live there, why did they abandon everyting, etc. In other words-curiosity! I also like the historical aspect, probably even more. I think the last photo was my favorite out of all of these.

    • I am right there with you, Allen…the history and the questions that don’t have answers…all the possibilities, I suppose. This is my favorite photo, too…I really enjoy the rich earthy colors….

  9. So textural!

    • Thank you, Karen. 🙂

  10. Great series exploring composition, format and treatment. If push came to shove, I would go with the sepia, then the mono, but would be interested to know which is your favoured one, Scott.

    • Thank you, John…and I actually saved my favorite for last…there is something about the rich offerings of gold and brown in this one that really appeals to me…. Thank you for asking. 🙂

  11. I love the colours in this Scott, just gorgeous.
