Print: Ringwood Manor

Last weekend my future brother-in-law, Aaron, and I took a drive through the Illinois countryside in search of abandoned houses. After searching for a few hours, we came across this beautiful Victorian house on Ringwood Road, near McHenry, Illinois. We explored the entire property, which included the house, three silos, a barn, and an old well. This is a photograph of the front of the house, which was overgrown by a large amount of brush. I used my Pentax LX with a 35mm F/2 lens and a yellow filter, on Ilford Delta 400 film. The physical print is 10 x 7 inches.

I took plenty of photographs of the interior of the house as well. I'll post those within the next few days.

Thanks for looking!
