Artist's Description

Location: Madison, Wisconsin
Filter: diffuser

My co-workers decided to check out the inside of the house. I wasn’t as brave, fearing the quality of the flooring and stairs. I caught this shot of Carolee in the window. I had used a filter, hoping for a ghostly effect, but the resulting image is still too sharp and strong. When I get PhotoShop, I’m going to try to increase the diffusion of her image to make it look more ghostly and less a live human.

An old farm located near my old job was condemned and torn down for a condominium development expansion. I did 2 shoots at the farm, one for black and white film with 2 co-workers and another solo venture with color film. The barn was in pretty bad shape, the roof had caved. The outside structure of the house looked good, but the inside was trashed by vandals and animals. I could still see a glimmer of the former beauty in this old farmhouse; I loved the stonework around the door and windows. Apparently, the property owners didn’t like the snooping around. After the first visit, trespassing signs were posted, which were violated on my second visit; then a guard was posted to keep out the vandals and curious.
