I found this cabin about 100 yards off of the edge of the road when I stopped to take some photos of circling Turkey Vultures. I thought that it was appropriate, as it was as though this old cabin was dying. I'm sure it could tell a few interesting stores. This is at the edge of a hardwood forest in southeastern Oklahoma. The tin roof was probably added 50 - 75 years ago, as a guess.

Love the gentle colours and contrasts in this pic, and that wood makes a fantastic backdrop.Very nice.

love these sort of shots, you see a few very similar shots like this over here. I love the whole look of this shot, I also think it would look great as a sepia

Hello Ward,

This photo really tells a story!

It appears it was built before the arrival of power tools given the rough-hewn look to it.

It would be very interesting to learn when it was built.

Very interesting subject, did you do any exploeing around the area? In Texas, along creeks and streams, we always found old structures like this that were fun to explore.

Thank you all for your comments.

Kanji - I didn't explore the cabin. It was on private property, about 100 yards off of the highway, and I wouldn't have done that unless I had been given permission. I would like to find out who owns the place however. I suspect that the interior (on a sunny day) might be even more interesting to photograph than the exterior. I looked through some of the gaps in the structure (via my 400mm + the 1.4), and I could see that the interior did contain some objects that would be interesting to photograph. I'm sure that one of the items that I saw was a 30's / 40's white enameled pantry cabinet. The fact that there were personal effects inside is anotherr reason that I wouldn't want to go inside without permission of the owner. I'll probably check back on this place this summer, and see if I can track the owner down through the local banker or sheriff's dep't. I'm sure this place is well known to the locals. By the way, this place is about 100 yards (through the woods) to a creek bed.
