A Ghost On The Plains II by kkart A Ghost On The Plains II by kkart
The Eastern plains of Colorado. A lonely and often times forgotten place with more photographic subject matter than you can imagine. Untouched by people for years, standing still in time and untouched by any camera. I love photographing this part of our forgotten past and history, wondering who the people were that once inhabited the lands...where they came from, the stories which they and the buildings could tell. It is beautiful out here, you can see as far as your eye will allow.

Myself and several other photographers have started working on a project which I have dubbed "The Eastern Plains Project", documenting and geotagging these locations of abandoned farms and houses. There is just so much out there literally undiscovered and untouched....

Wow! Beautiful composition with a perfect sky!
Ever since i was little i have wondered about the abandoned houses and barns i would see out the back window from the highway as we drove past.
You have captured this one so well. It does make one wonder. :clap:

This reminds me of when I visited Sicily, the big island off the 'toe' of Italy, in the summer of 2006. The whole place is pretty badly run-down, thanks to decades of corruption both by the local government and the Mafia. :( Driving along the pothole-ridden motorways and main roads, I passed abandoned farms, factories, irrigation systems. Even the railyway is abandoned - I never saw a train passing along once. :( And the land is dry - not to the point of being a desert, but enough that the grass was yellow for most of the year and only the pines, olive trees and cacti thrive.

John,
As someone who grew up in Colorado Springs I love seeing the pictures that you produce of Colorado. What makes it wven better is that you are one of the few and proud Alpha users such as myself. Keep up the good work.
