Brownfield, TX (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I'm suprised that this old abandoned farm house still has a roof after the violent dust storms that have pounded this area recently . I don't know if the license plate came off during the storm but it wouldn't suprise me if it did .

This picture reminds me of the "Dust Bowl" photos from back in the early 1930's.

Echoing #12, which came to mind when I first saw this, Tim.

Dramatic and descriptive image.
Thanks for your recent comment on my monochrome garages.

Thanks everyone for the comments ! I must also thank my pal frogee . He kindly brought something to my attention . In a moment of total cranial atrophy , I titled this picture " CLAM after the Storm " . Because the farm house in this photo bears no resemblance whatsoever to a " Red Lobster " restaurant or an episode of Spongebob Square Pants , I must take immediate action and change it to the proper title - " CALM After the Storm " . Thanks again Frogee :)

Straight out of Grapes of Wrath or Centennial. Nicely conceived and executed.

It's starting to look like another Dustbowl down there. Hope you folks get some rain this year.

Great photo! The license plate really makes it.

Oh my goodness, Tim! I didn't know you guys were getting hit with dirt storms. Isn't it usually more of a Spring phenomenom? I sure hope you get more moisture to keep the dust settled. AWESOME and descriptive capture! 10 and in my faves!!

About docshovel39

docshovel39

Hello , my name is Tim . I live in the small farming community of Ropesville , Texas with my wife and photo partner Sherry . I got involved with photography because of my older brother Steve - a fantastic photographer who lives outside of Seattle , WA . My favorite work , apart from his , is a terrific book entitled " Ghosts in the Wilderness " by Tony and Eva Worobiec . It captures the remains of small , abandoned rural communities across the Midwest , much of it shot in black and white . I also have become a fan of photographer Jim McGuire . His black and white shots ( nashvilleportraits.com) are amazing . Thank you for your comments and have a GREAT day !
