Just a Thought for the Weekend


"Clocks slay time...time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels;  only when the clock stops does time come to life." 

William Faulkner

  4. Why have these houses been left? I can't get my head around it? Was there no family to leave the house with? Or was nobody interested? Did family build close-by and so have no need of this home? Why wasn't it sold?
    I just have sooooo many questions!! That looks so beautiful. I want to know the WHOLE story!

  5. True. But I have to admit that being a Yankee (kind of) it drives me crazy when I am down south and everyone moves at the pace of a snail! LOL! I am a clock driven girl. Maybe I need to stop and smell the roses?

  6. Nice capture. I wonder what the back story is with this house. It must have been lovely at one point. Were your kids with you when stopped to take this pic? :)

  11. “The past is never dead. It's not even past.”
    ― William Faulkner, Requiem for a Nun

    Maybe this is true for houses as well as the "living," those for whom a clock does not measure living, anyway.

  15. These houses.... I always wonder what stories they have to tell. It makes me a little sad and curious at the same time. Love your eye for capturing the stories we tend to miss at first glance.

  16. I'm amazed by the number of abandoned houses and barns you find to photograph, Michelle. Their is definitely poetry in their images.
