Rundown and boarded-up 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 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 an excellent 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.
