This old house has been abandoned in this field on Highway 287 in Texas for many years. It must have been sturdily built to withstand the ravishes of time and the harsh weather of the Texas Panhandle. If you look closely, you can still see broken glass panes in the windows.
I love the colorful sky and bits of green grass in the original version. I’d love to know the story of the house and why it was left abandoned for so many years.
Black & White
Below is the black & white version that I entered in the Monochrome Madness challenge. I think the black & white version feels ominous and looks like a terrible storm is about to hit. The house seems almost scary; but I still want to know its story.
Do you agree that the black & white version changes the feel of the photo? Which version do you like best?
