This old abandoned house looks like it’s surfing on the soft dirt swell beneath it.
And The Landlord Taketh Away
Interior image of a long lost roof, likely once a stable part of a farmer or rancher’s home. This is out in Eastern Oregon near the Ochoco National Forest. There were obviously a few tenants around still making use of the structure, but they weren’t up for talk about the matter; most of them just flew off when I approached. The rest scurried underground.
This year’s excursion into the arid Eastern Oregon
wastelands farmlands was a great success; more images to come. The general effects of Wind and Solar decay on the old homesteads and ghost towns is both haunting and beautiful. The effect in this one image was actually a technical error, but I really enjoy what happened.
I love Eastern Oregon. This wood is completely weathered out from the intense dryness and brutal, constant sun. I noticed the face in this board, looking somewhat like a whale. Portrait, taken.
High Water Mark
Not entirely sure what the story is, here. It looks like someone built a building next to a wash, ravine, or small canyon. Weather did what it all too often does so well, and caught them by surprise one day. As you can see, the back of the building has fallen into the ravine.
Near the old Shoe-Tree sat this imposing old building. We didn’t go much closer to it than this.
Of Course, Of Course
What a great moment:

Good Day for a Shootout
This old house has seen some better days.
The front door is riddled with shotgun blasts and the front porch (or is that the roof of the front porch?) has completely collapsed.

Something about thewear and tear of sun, wind, and time on wood…
I think these boards were cut from Pine, but I really don’t know Oak from Madrone.
