Print: Highway House

I spotted this house driving back from Wisconsin, along I-94. It was nestled amongst a small clump of trees, on which many "NO TRESPASSING" and "PRIVATE PROPERTY" signs were posted. Luckily, there was no one around, so I got out of my car and looked around. Along with the house, there was a barn, silo, and two run-down sheds. The house was definitely the most interesting. All of the windows were gone, and the back door had been smashed to bits. A small doghouse was sitting upside-down to the right of the house (bottom right of photograph). On the front path was a small stuffed animal, practically petrified from the weather. I really wanted to go inside, but I was by myself, and who knows what kind of crackhead squatters might have been waiting in there with a knife. For the photograph, I used my Mamiya C330 with a 55mm wide-angle lens, and a yellow filter to make the sky contrast more against the house.

Thanks for looking!
