As I mentioned in my last post about abandonment, I often go for a certain look with a set of images. If the light cooperates and with this abandoned farm on County road E it did –
It isn’t often that I go for such an obvious effect, but with this forlorn old farm, it seemed fitting.
It’s so sad that so many family farms are wrecks now. The families scattered, probably ill-prepared for any sort of life or work off the land.
Since it was windy and cold, I took a documentary approach with the series. Looking to show it as it is without adding any drama to an already grim presentation. Just a little light vignette to a medium sepia treatment and a tiny bit of grain added in.
And as usual I didn’t go into any of the buildings. They did affect me though and how I think no matter how long I live in Wisconsin, how little I will grow used to it.
