I’ve brought you along with me many times to the deserted farm around the corner…and here we go again.

A developer (hissssss boooo) purchased  the property a few months ago and several of the buildings have been torn down. The two or three remaining have really deteriorated.

Yet…on a foggy morning last week there was so much beauty still to be found.



Today is my photo version of The Dance of the Seven Veils: a slow reveal of one of the last buildings standing.

The tall brown stalks are mulleins going to seed. The mullein is a wildflower as well as an herbal utility player.  You can smoke it, drink it or apply it as a poultice.


Or, you can crouch behind some to shoot your photographs, getting some pretty sweet vertical lines in the bargain.


The fog doesn’t play a starring role in this series, yet it served as a filter for all of my shots that morning, subtly softening both the landscape and the buildings.  That will be more obvious in the next couple of posts.

    The first photo is a stand-out. So they’re going to build a Starbucks and Walmart there?

    Agree on the developers hiss boo. Wouldn’t it be so good if they could restore / recreate these building with a modern fit out. You could go back to waitressing.
