Recently I took a trip to Mississippi to visit family and take photos of sources for new paintings. I took over 600 photos of about a dozen different sites, but I'm only going to post one at a time.
Ages and ages ago, I posted to ask a question of the photographers in the community whether it would be okay if I used their photos for sources. While some people granted permission immediately, others expressed well-thought out concerns and I realized that it would be too much of a legal issue if the photographer later objected or demanded royalties. So I bought my own camera (Nikon d70, lightly used) and had my Father map areas and ask for permission from the owners. Astonishingly, everyone he spoke to allowed us onto their property without supervision.
This first house is just down the road from my Grandparents farm, and it has been abandoned since the mid 1970's, likely due to structural problems in the kitchen area. I'm astounded that it's still standing, and that the floor is sturdy enough to walk on. ( Collapse )( Collapse )
