Taken in a old abandoned shack in Auburn AL. The suitcase was there. I look for simple images that stand on their own at first glance and then transport the viewer closer to a personal emotion and place. I look for the man-made landscape where once new buildings, structures and objects have been allowed to slowly decompose or given back to nature. Originally erected they had utility and purpose with daily interaction with people. They now gain beauty and interest as they lay empty and fallow within the larger landscape.
