Driving around (ok, being driven around, safely first, right?) backroads I come across little gems like these. I am particularly attracted to dilapidated buildings. There are plenty of abandoned homes around Tennessee, most are out in the country but some are located in small towns. I can’t help but try to imagine what their story is. What did they look like in their heyday? Who lived there? I like to imagine a happy past filled with joyous moments. This is why I prefer to shoot those buildings and houses in black and white. Those photographs are like a window on their past. The monochrome seems to fit the bareness their current state of disrepair. One could say I find them hauntingly beautiful.
