One of the things that have always made the Palouse un to explore is the abandoned houses and trucks that can be found in many places. Unlike other places, I visit it seems that a lot of times somewhere along the way folks just one day decided to pack some things and leave their homes. it’s not uncommon to find homes that have been abandoned for 20 plus years. Sometimes there is furniture and personal belongings in these homes.
The home above is one of these. There were a barn and a garage with this home but they were burned down in 2017. That is happening more and more too in the Palouse and is a who;e other stories. In any case, as a photographer, I like trying to capture these places and make the viewer ask what was the story?
