Out in the Jeep today roaming the countryside and came across this old homestead. The header at the top of the window read: Doctor W.B.Jones 1878. Wonder if the walls could talk what stories they would tell.

Thanks for looking,

Mandy

Great subject for B&W! The detailed look of the walls actually speak off ; )Its tastefully off centered compositionin adecently exposedsurrounding landscape and the skydo not go unnoticed either...

Thanks to both of you for your comments. We spent some time here just wondering about all the different people that would have visited the doc.

Fascinating place!

I agree with the others that b&w was the exactly the right thing to do here, I wonder how the composition would have looked with a little more room around the subject though?

Cheers, John.

Thanks John for your comments. I think a lot of these old buildings call out the B&W format.

As much as I hate driving through Kansas (about 6 hours car ride wide), there is some nice scenery. This photo represents that.

Off the beaten path isn't too bad...it warrants some history...going the pavement way like interstate is very boring indeed. Thanks for looking..appreciate it.
