The Ovid Farmhouse, Update
I made my usual stop at the abandoned farmhouse, in Ovid, NY. Each time I stop I see more and more deterioration. The front door is now gone and the doorway is boarded up, I guess to keep curious people like me out! The roof is more and more collapsed each time. There used to be a front porch and now that has collapsed into rubble. It is hard to explain my fascination with the deterioration of this building but I have been photographing it for years now.
This is a detail of part of the second story. I had never photographed this part of the house before, but in seeing how the clapboards have fallen off the wooden sheathing underneath gives more of a sense of a house coming undone.
I was looking for some kind of close up to add variety to these photographs. I found this window with vines growing around it. Love that the vine on top of the window has turned red because of Fall.
