    Wow - very cool that you got to check out the interior! My husband is the same way, he'll never get out of the car at any abandoned places we find, haha :)
    I do love the way you processed this shot, very dark and intriguing

    Thanks everybody!!

    Black Doll, I just saw your note. Yeah, they must have built that porch after the 1936 photo was taken. If you look at the old photo you can barely see the ghost lines of where an older porch was at.

    This photo is absolutely incredible! I don't know how you got it to look the way you did--but the tone is fantastic! It has a great "mood" about it.

    Hi Mark, I wonder if you could email me the location to this house? We would love to go there and get some pictures! :) I would appreciate it SO much!

    Forgot! Did you get permission from the National Registry to go inside? Or, can you just go inside? Probably not......

    I was not exactly supposed to be there. : ) Several years ago I did talk a farmer who was working the farm and he said it was ok to take pics then.
