I photographed this old stone house back in 1995 and loved it. Had a lot of sales on that photo. Back then of coarse I had older equipment and the shots although good were not great. I serched for this house year after year. Figuring in the end it had been torn down as so many old beautiful houses around here are.Then Jeff & I were driving down a dirt road and there it was. "pull over I said" That was the old stone house from 1995. No grass,no poppies in the ditch. Not much grass in the ditch. But the house is untouched and no different. Still boarded up and still a beautiful old stone house. I don;t know what it is about this place but I love it. It has a lot of character and the stonework is amazingly beautiful.To top that off we went out for an evening cruise in my son's boat. The sunset was incredible. We have been blessed with a lot of wonderful sunrises and sunsets this spring / summer. Life is good.
