Brooding on the Corner: The Real American Gothic

Somewhere in New England, this glowering pile of a house rears its hipped roof over the suburban landscape. And as my assistant and I gazed and took our shots, we both found ourselves talking about hidden history. For nearly a century and a half, the gothic windows have gazed silently outward. But what happened within? What dreams lie behind those eyes?

Taken with my 7D and Rokinon 8mm fisheye. Graduated neutral density filter effects added in post-processing.

Freelance photographer and ponderer of the unusual. I welcome the presence of mystery and the unknown. Wonder is not absent from the universe, and there is still room for the child in those who haven't yet allowed their hearts to wither to dust.
