Driving along a rural, two-lane North Carolina highway recently, I spotted this old farmhouse sitting way back off the highway. I kept on driving and soon regretted not having stopped to see if I could make a photo of it…so I turned around and went back. I had to trudge through some pretty wet ground to get up close, and then was confronted with lots of knee-high weeds, none of which I really wanted to walk through. So, I got as close as I wanted and captured this scene. I have written before that one thing I always wonder about when photographing old homes such as this, is who lived there and what were they like. Given the size of this two-story home, with two fireplaces, I suspect it was a fairly prosperous farm at one time…but I’ll never really know.
