The Dark Side of Orange County II by 


It’s hard to tell what part of this old house this might have been when the house was still inhabited. Actually, it’s hard to determine how the house came to be in the state that it’s in. It looks like it might have burned in some ways, but (a) there’s no evidence of charring on any of the remaining wood and (b) in a location this remote, an old wooden frame house like this one would have been completely destroyed before the fire department could have gotten to it.

    Intriguing visual story with such rich black tones. Nicely done, James!

  • Thanks! It was certainly time well-spent. And to think I never knew it was there until the leaves started dropping off the trees. And I almost missed it anyway. If I hadn’t been scanning for suicidal deer, I might not have even seen it.

    The shadows are all so foreboding!! This might have been a separate kitchen wing, or wash house. Fantastic capture!!

  • This — I think — was the original house based on the way the place was laid out. The part you can see from the front, more or less obscures this part and uses some different construction methods. If I had to guess, I’d say that this was once the front porch of the older part and was enclosed when the addition was built.
