Amazing how a change of seasons and the passage of over half a year can change a building. The old farmhouse outside of Washington, Illinois, is still clinging to life, but as you can see from earlier pictures, there has been a vast amount of clearing of underbrush, and all of the outbuildings in the back of the property.
You can actually see in the back of the house, on what was probably an addition to the original “prairie house,” which may be the original building on the property. It apparently looks very similar to the original house on my family’s farm: “two rooms up, two rooms down,” as they say.
Here is the more familiar elevation that I photograph, with the benefit of the missing foliage due to the winter.
I love this photo, and how it captures the sense of isolation.
