Shadows Against a Deserted House-New Castle, Virginia


Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing-Abraham Lincoln

Oh, I love old, deserted farmhouses...the weathered wood, forgotten by all but invasive foliage... Very nice shot, Erin.

What a great man he was and what a well thought out photo! Nice shot. I'm always a fan of old buildings and the history they hold.

Nice effect with the tree shadows. Make the old house look a little creepy and even more abandoned.

Erin, that is just wonderful.. the shadows are merely a compliment to that amazing old building ... kudos!

Erin, Your compositions are always intriguing. The building itself is "shadowy" - the shadow of the tree looks more substantial. Lincoln's words go so well with it.

That is a fabulous photo. It would look awesome framed and hanging on a wall. Its a very artistic shot!
