Like an old rancher whose lines and creases in his face are etched with stories and history, so too are the old farm houses that dot North Dakota’s landscape. This old building tells a story of an original home for a family that grew and needed a larger home. If you look closely inside, you can see the stairs leading up to what must have been bedrooms.The foundation may not have been what it should have been at the add-on point and so the boards push together at that seam. The chimney though is strong and straight, a contrast to the old building.
I shot this image north and east of Wilton. I’m not sure I could even find it again.
The texture of the green grass, the lavender sunset and the wind-softened wood create an attractive contrast.
