An Abandoned Farmhouse on the Saskatchewan Prairie
There were a few people asking about the farmhouse where I made this image of an interesting room inside. The house is on the top of a small hill several kilometres outside of Gull Lake, Saskatchewan on the Canadian Prairies.
The farmhouse I photographed is on the right. Although both are abandoned, I was drawn to the older building.
I could have used a tilt shift lens here but I like the perspective created by shooting upwards from a low position.
I spent a lot of time looking at the textures in the weathered wooden siding, this is the single image I came away with from that study.
The broken metal objects scattered around the back of the house made for interesting subjects – quite cooperative too.
This room faces east and the glass in the window frames broke a long time ago. With the gaping holes to the outside, this room suffered more from the prairie’s summer storms, bitter winters and steady winds than the rest of the house. I like the glimpse of what was once there you can see in this picture. It showed me that the house was lived in more recently than I first thought when I walked up the hill.
