I was fortunate enough to spend Saturday in my wife’s hometown of Belleville, Ks. photographing my lovely nieces and assorted family members.  At one location, off in a field in the distance, I spotted  an interesting abandoned stone house that was falling apart.   (I think this was probably a circa early 1900’s farmhouse at one time anyway.)   I’m always a sucker for abandoned buildings and architectural details, so this was a moth-to-the-flame type situation.  My primary mission in Belleville was portrait photography, but my brother-in-law was kind enough to drive me over to the stone house for a quick (under ten minutes) photo session.   So what do you do when confronted with an interesting subject, but under mid-day harsh sunlight and an uninteresting sky, and a time limit?  Why you just wing it of course.  (Then do some monochrome conversions when you get back home and hope you got something worth keeping-that’s what I did anyway.)   I’m not sure how successful I was, but thought it might make for a mildly interesting post.   I’ve filed this location away as somewhere that would be worthwhile re-visiting in more dramatic lighting conditions-or even at night.  I can’t believe my wife never told me about this house.

~Just a final quick note, it looks to me like these particular photos benefit quite a bit when viewed at the larger size you should get when clicking on the photo. ~

I was kicking myself later on the image above.   If I had been thinking clearly I would have centered a single distant tree in the window opening.   Dang it.
