Ottawa County, Kansas. January 2008.
(Read to the end for a special give-away)
I thought about calling this a throwback Thursday photo, but honestly, just about anything I take photos of is a throwback to days gone by.
Back on the trip I took in the Winter of 2008 I came across this old homestead in Ottawa County, Kansas. Somewhere between the town of Ada & Minneapolis. While I try to take good notes on where I photograph, still to this day even though GPS tagging happens in camera, in 2008 cell phone reception wasn’t that great in the rural areas and the roads I traveled usually weren’t shown on the state wide maps I used. So this is most likely marked as a dot in the middle of an empty space on a map of Kansas.
This home is a great example of why I Love photographing during the winter. The amount of nature that has reclaimed this home would have made it almost impossible to view had I driven by anytime past the month of May.
I’m super excited to see the fan base for Lost Americana growing and I feel it would only be proper to share my joy by giving away a pieces of art from the project.
