doorways and doughbowls


I shot these photos recently in Missouri at the home 
of my brother-in-law and his wife, Scott and Dee Hager.
The walls are pieced together with hand hewn logs 12 inches thick.
Can you imagine the hours spent kneading bread 
in these doughbowls that are 4 feet long?




Everything in this home must be over 100 years old
Can you imagine the stories to be told?
The crocks and tables and floors...oh the stories they hold





sit with me
here now
and spin me a tale

What interesting colours and textures. Wouldn't it be great to sit and talk and while away the day.

This is a captivating collection of images that whisper of the stories of the past, while telling a story of being in the present.

texture
calls my secret name...

crocks
walking up the stairs
tempt
me...

{{ if inanimate objects
could whisper me
their secrets
i would
never
ever get any work
done...

never
ever }}

great pics....I live near Boston, so I get to see so many of these old homes and barns....In fact, the house my sister owned was over 150 yrs. old....always needed some work, but it had so much character!

I love the interior photo which includes the ceiling.
And the stairway with your shadow.
It's a beautiful place
and perfect for spinning stories.

This is beauty.
The aged, old house is a stunner.
