The Old House Down the Lane


With the crisp cool mornings the past few days I feel a little fall is in the air and fall is my favorite season.  Fall also reminds me of Halloween and haunted houses.  This house is actually an abandoned Officer’s house located at Gateway National Recreation Area’s  Fort Hancock in Sandy Hook, New Jersey.  Fort Hancock is a National Historical Landmark and well worth a visit.  I actually photographed the house on a hot summer day.  I was able to get the dark look using clouds that I photographed with an approaching storm in Mount Kisco, New York.  I added some textures by Distressed Textures.  It was one of the few Officer’s Homes that was not badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy. Photographed with my Fuji X-Pro1.
