A while back, I saw an interesting schoolhouse on Flickr, a photo sharing website. I decided it would be fun to hop in my car, take a drive and see if I could actually find it. I knew I was in the right area because of the description under the photo. I stopped by a farm and asked a gentleman if he knew where I could find the school. He was kind enough to give me directions. I found the weathered schoolhouse and I thought it looked really intriguing because the corn was beginning to grow up around it. The scene was a picture of decay as well as new growth. I spent some time photographing this charming country school near Milford.
This is the inside of an abandoned house near Amherst. I wanted to take a variety of exposures and merge the images together. So, I brought my trusty tripod and was ready to capture the muted colors of the scene. The photography shoot got even more interesting as the boards under my foot gave away and my foot went right through the floor. Happily, I was unharmed and walked away with some great photographs.
