These were taken Christmas day in Lost Valley, Arkansas with the lowly DA 18-55 kit lens. Hope you like them.

The B&W version of this one received a POTD from photographyvoice.com.

Nice shots . I like the trees in the foreground of #1 but something about #2 seems to have a story.
Were there any more structures in the area?

Derm,
Thanks for commenting. This was the only structure in the immediate area, and the only one in Lost Valley that I know of, other than some facilities at the trail head about a quarter mile away.

Nice images, I love pictures of old houses and farm buildings.

There are many buildings like this in eastern North Carolina. I've started a little project to take photographs of as many as I can.

i like number 2 more than 1.

personaly the trees mask the house in number 1, and the angle is sort of weird

number 2 though is awesome, i like the angle at which it was taken.

also i think its more Deadbilly Homestead than anything...

Thank you Joe. I like old buildings a lot too. I'd love to see some of your shots from North Carolina if you feel inclined to post them.

Hi Gooshin,
#2 is my favorite too. I had a difficult time finding a POV with #1 that kept the trees from dissecting the door and/or the windows. I may try again the next time I'm in the area on a day with good light.
