I've used the house for photo shoots and I've also photographed details of a home that once had a family filling it. Thankfully the house is still standing. Every time I go home, I try to photograph different angles and parts of the house. One day, it won't be there anymore.
The flowers in the front of the house have bloomed year after year with no care.
That brings me to the sad part of this post. The beautiful barn that has been standing on the property fell down. This winter has been very hard on it with feet upon feet of snow piling on top of it.
The next few photos are just details of the downed barn. In some of the photos, you will see that the boards actually just bent and didn't break.
I am hoping to salvage many boards from it to make various things. Maybe a headboard or wall display...I'm not sure, but I feel the need to save as many parts as I can.
If you have a building like this in your life...take time to sit and think about all the memories you made. Photography the little details that made it special for you. You just never know when it will be gone.
The photo below is of my grandpa's barn, the place where I spent most of my childhood. I learned how to ride horses, helped make hay, fished, and enjoyed every second of being a kid. I'm going to do a separate post on this beauty. It's an important part of my childhood, especially since my grandpa has been gone for many years. I'll never forget my days at the farm.
The same goes for the people in your life. Never be afraid to photograph those close to you. Tomorrow is never a guarantee. Sorry this was so melancholy but I just want you to remember to enjoy every second of life :)
