This week we are sharing photos of things that are old, dilapidated or vintage. I have three examples. The first one is from last year that I took while on a boat ride in Florida on the Homosassa River. This house has definitely seen better days.
The next photo is from a recent trip to Alligator River Wildlife Refuge on Roanoke Island in North Carolina. This place has a lot of bear that can be seen on a regular basis in the spring and fall. We didn’t see any this trip but saw evidence of them.
The last image is one on a bike trail we frequent. It is a house built in the late 1700’s – early 1800’s. It first served as the Dismal Swamp Canal’s lock keeper’s house, then as a store for a lumber company, a commission booster for a pioneer telegraph line through this part of the state, a tea room and a private home. I love stopping at the site every time we go by it.
On the coast of Virginia, autumn is slow to arrive and sometimes the leaves go from green to brown. We recently took a bike ride and as we stopped at different spots, we saw a few signs of autumn colors.
Cee invites us to pick a subject based upon a photo of hers. I decided to go with a small building. This has got to be one of the smallest post offices I’ve ever seen. The 2019 population in this small town on Hatteras Island was 91.
I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
