On a trip to west Texas I came  across an interesting abandoned farm house and GMC truck sitting on blocks in Anson, Texas that’s on the edge of town. When I saw it I just had to stop and get a better look and take some pictures of the house. I posted a few pictures and I received responses from other rural photographers referring to this house as the prosthetic house. Before leaving town, I asked a couple of locals about the house, they knew the house and confirmed that the house had some prosthetics in it. Apparently this is a well known house. But, I’ve never been in it. 

Condition: Abandoned Farm House in Anson, Texas

As with many old farm houses, they forgotten and ignored whiled the land is worked. 

The house is in rough shape and I really don’t see it ever being habitable again. Its roof is full of missing shingles and some of the windows are missing. 

What I love about this old house is that the farmer has plowed up the land right to the edge of the house and sitting next to the house is an old GMC truck sitting on blocks waiting for someone to get her running again.

About the Images

The images were shot from the fence line by hand in the mid afternoon sun 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 crop, 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.
