Still working on the highlights on this one but it's getting closer.
An old abandoned house that's so full of character, every time I drive by I need to pull over and look at it. Ripped screens, broken windows, old books still stacked on the sills. I may have to revisit and see the titles... When I scan the negatives visions or reflections appear in windows that were previously unnoticed, a young girl in a dress perhaps. Was that singing I heard? Even a Turkey Vulture makes a nest in the unused chimney. He stands ever so still with wings outstretched like a weather vane. Took me a bit by surprise when he moved.
There shall be music in my afterlife.

There's something so papery-delicate about the details in this, in the bark, the foliage, the paint, that reminds me of both the fragility of life and at the same time, the fact that the photograph itself exists on paper ...
