Photographer's Note

I found this abandoned farmhouse while exploring the countryside around Anderson, MO. While there's nothing really significant about the house itself, I guess the reason it struck me is that I noticed just how small it is, and the chimney right in the middle. What a contrast to the McMansions we see going up everywhere today. Some family lived in this house and ran a farm. The previous winter had been especially harsh, and I thought of the people who had lived in this small house, going about their chores and coming inside to warm themselves by the fire at the base of that chimney. I suppose it drove home for me just how much our lifestyles have changed over such a (historically) short period of time.
