Rural landscapes: looking inside
ME AND THE ABANDONED HOMESTEAD, NEAR BEISEKER, ALBERTA
Traveling along any prairie road that happened to attract my attention, I came upon this abandoned farmstead. The barn is still being used to store agriculture equipment, but everything else had been long left to the elements.
This is just the kind of photo subject that can hold my attention; for this scene, I decided having a person looking inside would make the photo stronger; since no one else was around, that person became ME. (Here’s another version of the scene, with everything but me converted to black & white: http://www.bit.ly/PrairieHomestead.)
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
P.S. Since making this photo, I’ve found out the homestead was used in the movie “Brokeback Mountain”.

The inclusion of the figure works very well, Frank, and I like the version over on 500px too.
Thanks for checking out both versions. 🙂
