If man's creations are left to nature....man will loose.

The remnants of a family now are given back to nature's reclamation. We as humans have a wonderful gift...the gift of memory. Our past often only lives in this realm. Years have taken this home and nature is doing what it does best...reclaim it's property after man has left. The children of this home...now elderly adults remember the home as it was in it's prime. The images and stories connected with home will be passed down to newer generations even though this home will in time cease to exist. It lives on forever in our memories. Oral traditions worldwide, thankfully, preserve out past for us.

I like the perspective through the open door in this photo. Oral traditions are so important to keep family histories alive. I ask my mother to share stories of her childhood often. Even though I may not have ever met certain people of her life, I feel obligated and privileged to know and keep their stories alive.

I love your style of photography. I like the way your photos always give that calm and peaceful effect. Wish I could take photos like that.

Ditto Septembermom...I know of my past through stories told by my elder relatives...I have heard them over and over again at family gatherings and sometimes tire of them but so glad to have heard them.

Lly...I have seen your photos and they are nice work as well. Its just that everyone develops their own style of the art. Their are people who do not like my photos...they feel they are "overdone"...sometimes over the top. That is fine...there is a place for all types of work...that is what makes the world interesting.

Another great shot of an old building. You have a sure touch with editing as well.

Thanks Tricia...I am always torn between Black and White...and ...color...I think some images just work better a B and W.
