Rundown and boarded up of home
I love to photograph almost anything old and decaying. I find a sense of history; time passed; lives are forgotten. In this image, I was walking up a rural country road in Romania, and this old building caught my eye. I spent some time photographing the old wooden building from numerous angles. This picture focuses on the dead center at the main door is what I liked the most. Look at the front door. It is old and decaying, and one of the two doors is warped over time. This is a great timepiece of someone's house or home.
I found it exciting that the building still had windows and drapes intact, but a few wooden planks were nailed across one of the windows. The front entrance into this old farmer's homestead has a covered porch, where one can imagine many a night old-timers sat there smoking a pipe and watching the sunset over the horizon.
I also love the texture of old buildings. Turning them into black and white and popping the texture sliders makes this image come alive to me.
