In this post, you’ll find my favorite photos from a photographic excursion I took this morning with friend and fellow photographer Alexandra Hehlen (check out her beautiful blogazine, the Candid Correspondent, here).
Decaying places possess a certain romance.
On the grounds of Dockery Farms, a plantation just outside Cleveland, Mississippi, there stands a small house in the throes of decay. Once, it served as the doctor’s house, but today the doctor is most certainly not in. Two doors are missing, plants have sprouted in the kitchen sink, and graffiti portraits haunt the walls. Even so, the doctor’s house and its environs beckon with beauty. Welcome to this world of light and shadow.
