This old house (feedback appreciated)

I find that old, and often abandoned buildings have so much character. This is one I shot this week and would love to hear feedback, whether positive or negative.

Following feedback, I offer 2 new versions taken from a slightly different angle. I feel that these give a better perspective of the house. Preferences?

Just as I found it

I was walking through the woods of a city-owned property and came upon a pair of shoes. The other shoe was under the log, and I didn't want to disturb the scene; I wanted to keep it exactly as it was when I first saw it.

ancestral lands of beasts

Hidden beyond the National Park of Peneda-Gerês, lies a land lost in time with traditions of cattle raising and strong religious beliefs that go back to pagan times. This funemenal atmosphere full of mysticism, mystery and mists is fed by isolation and is one of my favorite places.


I mentioned surfers in another post this morning so I thought I'd drop this in. When I was teaching myself about action/panning, I started hanging out at the beach taking shots of surfers. I would connect with the kids and give them anything I got.

My goal for them was to make them look like they are riding huge waves when in reality...

Suggested NJ Destination - Sandy Hook

Just for fun, I thought I'd share a little survey of one of my favorite locations. I enjoy seeing where you all have been and this seemed like a fun idea. These are all from Sandy Hook, NJ. The old military base is a gold mine for photography. There is so much to see that you can't even do it in a day. Maybe even more.

Blind and Harmonious

In a small town of Peru this blind harpist carries his harp from home to marketsquare on his back. He has done this for 30 years.
He will play for any who wish to listen.
That's dedication !

Con Cave

In a long narrow corridor full of cells for convicts, a lone skylight far above set in a concave ceiling offers very little natural light.

Wood on the Beach

Not sure what I'd ever do with this but the wood grain has always appealed to me. I can return to this location so feedback and ideas welcome.
