Driving through Loudoun County, Virginia I seen many sights like this - old farms, farmhouses - abandoned, sold off to developers, falling down. Waiting only to be bull-dozed by the developer or burnt down by the volunteer fire departments for practice. Sometimes, very rarely, the barn is saved by the developer to be used for a meeting center or the farm house--if it is elegant enough it is restored and sold.
If I can, when I can, I love to explore these old sites - see what remains, conjecture on who lived there, what their life was like, when did they leave. I wonder where they went, did they start a new farm, did they retire? Some of the farm cats had been left behind, box shelters...
In my photographs, I seek to capture a moment, to give the viewer a glimpse of place and time that arrests the movement of life and allows each of us to savor what is there to be seen. I have a camera in my hands every day, and my favorite sound is the sweet click of the shutter as an image is caught.
I have photographs for sale at local galleries, including A Show of Hands in Alexandria, Virginia, and gallery209 in Cape Charles, Virginia. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my work!
