I'm Going to Miss You!

I've shot this old prairie house a lot of times, but yesterday may be the last time......It has seen a hundred years of storms and tornadoes passing by, but like everything, time eventually wins out over survival. Keep looking......

So how much Spring wind can it take before it is history? I'm gonna miss you!

100 years of Texas weather is enough for anything Rupert. Do you know anything about the history of the building?

It's a shame that there is not much left of the old place. Glad you captured it before its last gasp. I love the first shot by the way. Nice bit of PP work.

I love the different state of disrepair you see in the series. From the front it could be a property salesman's fixer upper :-) Cheers Garry

This has been like your signature image Rupert - always love to see it. I had no idea it was in such disrepair until I saw these photos from a different angle. It will be a shame to see it finally fall - looks like one good Texas thunderstorm is all it will take now.

An outstanding series, Rupert. During my "growing up" years in Illinois, there were so many old places like this around the country side. It's great that you've caught this one while it's still around.
