Cat - Felix Face

Happy Holidays

wulfwalker and I want to wish all our LJ friends a very merry holiday day. We are having a very sedate time this year. We've already exchanged the presents for the year and now it is time to enjoy each other's company. It'll just be us, the seven cats, one poodle, four adult wolves, one chow, and six cubs celebrating in Liberty SC.

Yesterday we ran out to Laurens to check on my kitty children. While there we took some more pictures of the HWY 221 abandoned Craftsman style house. There were some very rural touches that I had missed the first time and we made a macabre discovery in a shed. I got so wrapped up in the day that I forgot to post my daily blog. Truthfully, I spent my computer time prepping and uploading the pictures from the day's shooting. The photography thing has become a rather intense hobby. This surprises me, but I suppose life can sneak up on a person.

Abandoned

Abandoned House - Anderson County SC

We found this abandoned house at a rural intersection in Anderson county. The building was literally surrounded by brush and briars. The shed at the back of the house has not been used in years, evident from the small trees growing in front of the doors. We would have gotten more pictures, but there was literally little of the house that was viewable from the shrubbery surrounding the building.

This picture set is part of a larger trip we took in Anderson county on 12/23. All 66 pictures from our journey are in this flickr set.

Wyatt General Store - Anderson County, SC

Welcome to the very rural Wyatt General Store in Anderson County, SC.  The store was active from 1908 to the 1930s.  We learned about the history of the location from Mr. Johnson, the owner of the land.  His Grandmother lived in a large house that was adjacent to the store.  The original furnishings were removed from the store in the 1960s and now Mr. Johnson intends to move the building to another location.  We very much appreciated his information.
