365-362 Old haunts

Apparently I’m still on my mental vacation because I’m still not putting any effort into shooting. I’ve been relying on my processing a little too much to help carry me through the past few days, mostly because what I did shoot has been lame, at best.

Today, I had to go out and buy a wireless router because I’ve finally decided to add wi-fi to my house. In the past, I didn’t really need it because the one wired computer was fine and I only used the laptop when on the road, but for some future renovations and redecorating I’m planning, the wi-fi will come in handy. Since the shopping center was in the general area, I thought I would swing by the old house in South Park and take some detail pictures since it was bright out compared to the last time I was there(365-295), when it was fairly dark and I wasn’t able to do any close-up shooting. Unfortunately, today I found the house surrounded by chain link temporary construction fencing and the doors boarded up, obviously slated for demolition. They do that a lot around here – destroy history. I wasn’t able to get close enough for any good compositions and, worst of all, I wasn’t able to look inside, which I was hoping to do to capture some nice interior details. So, all I got to shoot today was the front porch. So, another ho-hum shot.  It seems my 365 is ending like it started – I find myself grasping for photos. Pentax K20D, DA17-70

    I love it. The photo captures the emptiness of the house. I don’t think it’s hum drum.

      Thanks. I was just a little hard on myself since I couldn’t explore the house more.

    I actually really like this shot and the post-processing really adds to the mood of the photo 🙂

      Thanks. I do like the mood now that I look at it again. Desolate, solitude.

    The tones in this photo are really good. It makes me want to know the story of the house.!

    Even though it looks abandoned, this photo has an inviting feel to it!
