by old falling apart buildings such as this one
I think about where the road leads
What this building looked like in its prime
Who built it and why
and why is it sitting abandoned now?

Hey, did you take that photo? Where is that at? Sorry, the photographer in me is getting REALLY excited!

I always wonder the same things when I see abandoned homes and barns. Seems they hold so much history that they could tell a fascinating story.

Hi Wendy--I can't figure out a way to email you, but I have really been enjoying your book--(I won it when you were hosting the studio blog--thanks!) I am inspired to make some changes to the decor in my scrap room/office/guest room to display some of my SB work and photography. I SO WANT those giant clothespins that hold up the pictures of your boys in your scrap room--any memory of where you got them? I'd LOVE to know--Thanks! And thanks for a great book!

OMG I wonder the same thing!! I always wonder how the people's lives were different from mine, how they went about their days with no concept of what life would be like 20, 50, 100 years later. Do you suppose they could have even imagined the Internet? And how we now can only hazily remember life without it? I see those old buildings along America's highways, and just wonder.

If you like that picture, I have an entire 8x8 album called "Tin Roofs". I live outside of Atlanta in an area that is rapidly changing from rural to suburban and I wanted to document all the many buildings like this, most of them with tin roofs. I carried my camera in the car for several years and my family was so used to me pulling off on the shoulder of the road when I spotted an intriguing building (but aren't they all intriguing?), that they would point them out to me.
So many of these buildings have subsequently either fallen into ruin or been flattened to make way for a subdivision. But they live on in my album and in my picture of how this area used to be.
P.S. Loved the book. The workbook really helped me figure out my process and what I needed to be inspired. And then about two solid weeks of going through my "stuff", purging, donating, and reordering where things live. I'm finding it so much easier to clean up when I finish a product or to put away new stuff. (But I'm on chipboard and ribbon restriction, currently!) Check out what I did on janesimmons.typepad.com.
