What I do
I’m always on the lookout for abandoned farmhouses, barns and schoolhouses. Something about them is so fascinating to me. I find beauty in the sadness of their abandonment, standing alone and forgotten in wheat fields.
How I do it
I spend hours on Google Earth, scanning the landscape for spots I’ve come to recognize as old farms and forgotten homes. I scour Facebook feeds, history books and websites, looking for the right places to shoot. I also tell the stories of these locations as best as I can on the blog site for Our Great Escape.
Where I live
I’m based in Eastern Washington State, a region built by pioneers and homesteaders. While some of stayed behind, many have left their little towns and homes behind to pursue life in urban areas. I honor their hard work in bringing us to where we are today.
