This early 1800’s cabin located in Madison, NC was about lost to decay by the 1960’s, until a local citizen took charge and developed a plan to save it. That plan took about thirty years to complete but it was done via major renovation both inside and out. Today the historic home is open periodically for visitors to view various items on display inside, looking as it might have looked when it was occupied by the Jordan family. My objective in making these two images was first to show the full view, then a composed close-up, which I wanted to break into thirds, with the window in the middle third. This is a technique you may want to try in your camera work, noting that the second image would have to go with the first so as to identify to the viewer what the close-up is.
