Before and After

Several years ago when I was trying out black and white, I took this photo of an old building tucked behind and to the side of our post office. No telling how old it is.

It is so eerie looking with vines all over the building that I always thought it should be in some horror movie.

Take a look at those old tin doors. Think about opening those creaking doors at midnight while searching for a lurking alien monster, sort of like The Thing.


This is a photo from yesterday. Someone had the audacity to see the building's potential for an office and remodeled. Yep, that's me in the reflection.

Until next time, God bless.

That is a scary picture of the barn but it looks great in a mysterious sort of way. I bet there are wonderful stories behind that one.

Lynn said...

Daisy, I think you are right;there must be a good story or two about that building. I think I'll stop in the next time I'm in town to see if I can find out.

What a dramatic difference. Too bad we don't look better as we age.
I wonder what the new owner thought of the lurking photographer taking photos of his place.

Lynn said...

Rae, lol, seeing my reflection in the window 20-30 feet away looks waaaay better than up close in the mirror.

I'll be 70 in three days. Shoot I go around thinking I'm about 40-45 until I walk past a mirror: Gad, who IS THAT?! lol

Good photos, I love B&W, it is so dramatic.
I would be interesting to find out the history of that old building.

I would also like to know what happened to the old doors, those were cool.

Good suggestion re the doors, SQ. I would not have thought to ask about the doors. :D The next time I'm in Dripping, I'm going to stop by that office to see if I can get the history.

That's very cool. I love black and white pics!

B&W are fun to play around with. Maybe we should have a B&W Challenge with everyone posting and then leaving their blog address. Think I'll do that.

Very artistic photos, I could see those in a coffee table book.
