Farmhouse in Maine

This farmhouse down east in Maine struck me as quintessentially chic-shabby, or in Lewis Caroll’s turn of phrase, “sweetly picturesque in rags.” Not that there are any rags in view, but clearly this once somewhat grand structure was a little worse for time and weather.

I processed the image to make it look almost like a photo taken on a stormy night (it was in fact a bright and humid day!), and then painted in the second-story window, and added a faint glow to the car headlights—moving from Lewis Carroll to Steven King country.

Exposure data: 58mm, 1/1250 of a second at f/8 and ISO 250, handheld.
