Leesville Abandoned House

I've been driving past this house for over a year. It's one of only a handful of old houses that remain, as multiple very large developments and subdivisions are being constructed next to and across from this house. It's quite sad, but it's progress I suppose. This particular house always caught my attention, very moody, and the tree adjacent to it is just as stark. While I've both procrastinated photographing this house, I've also been waiting for the right light and conditions. This particular day the conditions were about right for one of the shots I've been envisioning. The tree with a few remaining leaves, bright enough to contrast the house, and an overcast and misty day for a flat light. I ventured out, took numerous photos from various positions, moving closer and closer until the excitement really began. The largest, oldest, scariest, angriest toothless redneck I've ever encountered nearly hit my with his car, pulled into the lawn and chased me into the street, getting barely close enough to barely grab me and my camera, but never quite close enough to do it. But he was seething with rage. There was violence in his eyes. With a thick southern accent and no teeth to help him articulate himself, I couldn't make out a single word. I tried to defuse, tried hard, but he wanted nothing but to see me hurt. So I managed to get to my car drive away fast enough, but not before he had his hands inside the car. Thankfully I drove off before he could make contact with me or my camera. I sped off, heart pounding, and laughing. So here's what I managed to get. And I will return, I will take more photos. Stay tuned! I am committed to more photos, this time with different lighting, and more starkness, and hopefully not violence. I just have to plan it carefully. If you never hear from me again - you'll know why.
