Forgotten, and gone…

“Gone, but not forgotten” is a common sentiment on headstones I encounter as I photograph cemeteries. But there are other rotting, non-human corpses all around my town: homesteads and barns of the first settlers of Eastern Washington. Today, wildfire is endangering a couple of nearby communities, a reminder that we are very much at the mercy of nature. That is one reason I take the time to find and record these old structures. The one above was destroyed by fire two years ago. Except for perhaps this image, it is forgotten, and now gone.
