Overgrown

Posted by

The years and the weeds have overgrown this old place; an open window gapes vacantly at this pile of brush which someone has left for another time.

I like how the overgrown part is in focus and the house is just "back there" in a soft focus. Great in b&w, makes it look kind of spooky.

I'm really enjoying this series. Reminds me of my hometown in Cajun country when I was growing up, and places like this were common and all too available to young explorers.

I really like the processing. It is perfect for the image.

A fine image of decay and natures rejeneration.

Perfect depth-of-field here, Glenn - a moody and memorable image.

I love the depth of field to bring focus on the weeds.

The B&W brings out the texture of the brush, looks great against the soft DOF.
Good eye for this shot.

It looks fine by day but would be spooky by night.

i love the windows especially the dark ones, because that leaves you wondering whats inside.

If only these old homes could tell us their tales of woe... great images, Glenn.
