...."Ranch Hands Old Home"....

This ...."Ranch Hands Old Home".... is located 28 miles
northwest of our home and is on the leading edge of the

The Ranch Headquarters is North of here about 1/2 mile.
It was not unusual for Ranchers to provide housing for there
better and long time employees.

This old home, however, has not been lived in since the
mid 1950's according to the type of electric wiring and
telephone wire going into the house. You can see that
the front porch has recently fallen and is still leaning
against the front of the old home. In the back you will
see the old windmill used to supply water to the home
and the cattle. The heating stove was centrally located
and rooms built around the stove to utilize the heat as
best as possible and the kitchen would have been in the
back right part of the house.

Thanks to everyone for looking in.

Hi Larry,

It must be wonderful to live in a place where you can find old abandonned houses. Space is at a premium here in the Netherlands and places will not be left empty like this.
I love creating frames - I like your frame but I think I would try to add like 4% yellow and 5% red after framing to give the picture an even more timeless but warm feeling. I use the free downloadable programm PhotoFiltre to do just that.
I used the enlarge option to really appreciate the sharp details!

Neat shot, the B&W works nicely for this run-down house..
I like the old windmill BG, and dead tree trunk FG, they add well Smile

Hi Larry.

This is such a beautiful b+w image that you have captured in pleasing tone. The sharpness of the image is of the top quality with the weed in the foreground. Love the note and thanks for sharing.

Well done.
