On one my road trips to explore Fort Phantom Hill I came across a small abandoned farm house near Abilene, Texas. This little farm house is old. At some point, the family living here grew large enough for another small addition to be added out back. But eventually it wasn’t big enough and the family moved on.

About the Images

The images were shot by hand in the middle of a bright and sunny afternoon with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8. I then edited the images in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the images. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the images.
