The infrared treatment of the late spring scene gives it a wintery appearance.

  1. You are so right about the wintry appearance; quite magical. And I could easily move into the house with the porch and all those posts. Do you think it was as wild in person as it looks in the photo? Or perhaps more!

    1. The house in New Roads, La.? I could live there too. It’s a bit of a puzzle, because it clearly looks abandoned, yet the house is is good shape (except for one broken window pane) and the shrubs and small trees look arranged by someone. It must have been between tenants. What a beautiful meadow around it though.

    1. Although, if I remember correctly, Hobbits have round doors.

      I was trying to figure out what it could have been. The pretty little porch over the door is too nice for just a farm shed. It almost looks like an abandoned small family chapel.
