Series: We Just Called it "Home" #4
Vacant farmhouse in SE Madison County, near Boston, AR -- Winter, 2007.
Freezing fog left a thin glaze of ice on nearly every surface of this mountaintop, with a coating of hoarfrost on everything above the soil line. Outside, in the moment, it was every bit as cold as it looks.
From behind the camera, it was easy to imagine this old home place 80 years earlier under similar weather conditions -- with a plume of smoke coming from the chimney on the outside, while inside a roaring blaze in the fireplace pushed back against the winter weather.
