Sometimes taking backroads has its benefits, this old abandoned farmhouse was outside of the historic town of Andersonville Georgia where I stopped for the first time to shoot a few photographs on the way home from Tennessee back in 1997, the countryside was gorgeous and while leaving the historic town I decided to take a route that was a bit out of the way of the main highway but well worth it.
Like out of a novel, the miles and miles of lonely roads filled with farm's and abandoned structures bought me to a transitory state, It was a great opportunity of the senses and I could easily visualize the historic past coming to life before me as I drive past the forlorn aged dwellings. This image was a result of my experience of this area it captures the feel of a families past, their dreams and hopes that as time went on and generations past, slowly declined into an almost dreamy death.
This was photographed using Kodak 35mm Infrared b/w film and Pentax camera.
