I always thought abandoned houses had a romantic charm. My friend Leah posted a picture of this house on Facebook. I liked it so much I asked her if I could drive to her family ranch and photograph the house myself. The leaves were such a pretty color and I loved the towering windmill.
This is the Alex Pirnie Homestead at the Cooksley Clear Creek Ranch in Custer County. This house is located northeast of Broken Bow. Leah’s great-grandfather owned the house. The house was originally constructed with sod, but eventually was turned into a regular home made of wood. Leah’s grandfather, Alex, faithfully kept a journal documenting interesting events in his life. Apparently when he built the house, he didn’t realize it was an Indian campground. Surprisingly, even after the house was built, the Indians would still camp not far from the house near the creek.
This is the first abandoned house I have been in that was quite full of relics from the past. One of the rooms had a cow tank. This particular room featured a bird cage. The house has not been inhabited since 1942.
I have been enjoying the beautiful fall colors. This morning I found a pretty maple leaf at Cottonmill Lake near Kearney.
These colorful leaves were found along Highway 2 near Hazard, Nebraska. The sun lit up the leaves giving them a warm glow.

me a brief story about an interesting “photographic moment.” One free 8 x 10 printed
on metallic paper will be sent to the person with the most interesting story.Here is an example… When I was in first grade, I had my beautiful long hair cut off. I had a boyish haircut, and in my little school, they would hand out combs to the students while they were waiting for their picture to get taken. I was a little nervous. I combed my hair multiple times wanting it to look straight and perfect. Since I had combed my hair so many times, when I got my pictures back, my hair was sticking up due to all of the static electricity that had built up due to all of my incessant combing. They say that your hair stands up before you get struck by lightening. That photo made it look like a storm had been brewing above my head.
