Vision of the Future by WayneBenedet Vision of the Future by WayneBenedet
Prints available at The Untapped Source [link] starting at $22.00.

We often see old buildings as visions of the past. But when you pause to think about the process of life and history, they also represent where everything goes. So they remind us of the future of most man made things.

the buildings won't last long in some cases. Already many of them that I posted earlier have disappeared. To me... that is where the sadness is... not in the buildings themselves, with them I feel hop and memories of those past, it is when they are gone that there is sadness because that means the past is forgotten too.

yes - and i suppose we all like to think life goes on, that peoples lives and the fabric of them matter, not that they will disappear with no trace.. our own mortality. the fragility adds to the beauty and the sadness. something that would not wear out and break down would not resonate so strongly - the decay reflects our condition. i dont mean to be morbid!

I think it is sometimes important to consider our own mortality, it tends to keep us humble. Perhaps because of that, I do not see your thoughts as morbid, just real.

Very beautiful and a great shot as well. At first I was thinking it is a digital art though. This house resembles me of the philosophical-literature theme of passing; perhaps some happy and long-living family was living there and know these rotting away walls carry just broken memories of them. Awesome.

thanks.

In a sense all of my work is digital art. Each piece begins with a base exposure, but the final result can take hours and even days to complete depending upon the mood and complexity of the piece.

I agree with you that these things contain memories within them. Yesterday I went to a city east of where I live to pick up a show of 38 canvas prints that I have touring the province. It began to tour in 2011 and will complete its tour in 2013. The show is called "Voice of the Pioneer" and displays old houses and artifacts. The full collection is in my gallery here at dA and copies up to 30x40 are available at my sales Gallery.

Thanks again for commenting.

Really cool old house and amazing sky!
These old places are fading fast, kinda sad.
My neighbor just tore down his barn (was falling down anyways) and I realized I had never photographed it. Just a memory now.

I have seen a number of places disappear in the last few years. To me, it is always a sad thing.

Great shot! That's a cool old house. It looks like it's going to storm any moment. I like storms as long as they don't do any damage. :)

It looks like the ligthing rods have been added 'recently'. That makes me think this house is still important for someone.

I really don't know. I have not seen lightning rods added to new homes, so i thought they were a thing of the past out here.

I just noticed the cable coming down. It's not fixed, just hanging. That lead me to thinking that it has been just 'thrown' there for protection. :shrug:
