Another abandoned house on Hwy 1. This one had about two miles of nothing before and after it along the highway, and I imagine it was quite picturesque a few decades ago. The house has the same shotgun floor plan but the facade varies differently than most I’ve came across in this area. A peek through the window revealed a definite hardhat area and the floor was rotted out. I also heard some kind of animal scurrying for shelter in there. I took a pass on this one and did not enter.
As for processing, I did some color experimenting. While I’ve been focusing on black and white for the dreamy and darker mood it casts on these abandoned subjects I’ve been exploring, I’m hitting a little B&W burnout. I did process a B&W version but sent it over to my B&W project on Flickr. The one above began with a split-toning. I duplicated and then Gaussian blurred the new layer. Then I masked back and forth to get a sort of diffused vignette. Then I did several tone curve masks to get the lighting and contrast set. Then I layered in one final rectangular vignette.
