Nice! Very nice. Floors like this remind me of...well...floors like this: quite a large number of which exist in bars older than this country (the floors are newer, probably replaced in the 1700s or thereabouts!) and the walls get all sweaty in interesting ways. I love the light and the wood-grain. Nice. Very nice!
I like places like this. I like the feeling of all the people and things that happened in old places. If you stand there you can hear the whispers of all those people. Yea yea, I know it's my imagination, but yea, I like the feel of old places. Beautiful capture.
Great shot hon. Imagine in the late 1870s, the mansion, the barn and all the outbuildings were built for $40,000 by a work force of twenty men. I read that there was such great activity during the building phase that travelers crossing the plains mistook the ranch for Strong City.
