THESE WORN STEPS LEAD TO THE PORCH OF A CONDEMNED HOUSE ON RURAL PROPERTY IN THE OUTSKIRTS OF A SMALL, CENTRAL COASTAL TOWN IN CALIFORNIA. STORMS AND HARD WEAR HAVE DETERIORATED PAINT, WOOD AND THE LIVES OF THE AGRICULTURAL FAMILIES WHO’S FEET HAVE TRODDEN THESE STEPS FOR A HUNDRED YEARS.

    Terrific capture, perspective and pov!

  • Thank you! I just loved the textures . . . as these steps sink into the earth – recycling into mulch! LOL.

    Hundreds of stories……the hellos and goodbyes as they came and went!! So well spotted and captured!

  • Exactly. So well said, Lynda. Aren’t we, as photographers, blessed with an eye for extraordinary images, seeing beauty in the mundane?!
