I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for the input, Taz. I've reigned in the bright sky a tad with this revised posting.

    Hey, Orv. There's an old fellow that lives here. He's actually the fourth generation of his family to occupy the home.

    Now that we are in Georgia, it is not a bad place to call home!

    Have a great day!

    Great place and shot, although I agree with Taz on the bright sky. Have we seen this place before? it looks familiar.

    Last year, I posted some color shots of the same place. A different perspective this time, and shot with a B&W image as the goal. This place is one of my favorite targets when I'm near Blowing Rock....which is a lot. There's a lot of this kind of photo material down in that hollow where this home is. But it's also an area where you better know someone before you go traipsing around their little tight community.

    After the adjustment, you still think the sky is too bright?

    You're so right, Josh. Simpler times.

    Wonderful Tom...

    Interesting structure and I love the B+W treatment! You certainly have a knack for finding these gems!

    Thanks, Al. You know, finding jewels like this one is kind of like looking for shark teeth at the beach. Visitors get exasperated when they can't find any teeth. But once you develop an " eye " for spotting the things, you find that they are all over the place. I've found literally thousands of teeth over the years.... have given most of them to other folks. Take care, my friend.

    Still a bit bright, but still a very nice shot.
