One of the interesting features of the west is the amount of houses and buildings that over time have been abandoned and nature has taken it’s toll on them. I often wonder when I see one of these buildings what the story behind it is? Who lived there? Why did they leave? Why build in that place to begin with? I never seem to find any answers but there are always images present.
I saw this house and off to one side along the driveway was this exterior building. Not sure what it is for but it intrigued me nonetheless. When I captured the image I thought it would good as is but when I got back to the computer I started playing with SilverEfex Pro 2 and something in the snow on the driveway made me leave the image as a Black and White. It just goes to show that not always having a clear intent in mind when you take the image is a bad thing.
