4 Seasons: Outhouse

This is an outhouse that stands on the site of an old homestead on Old Smith School Lane in Armstrong Creek.  The barn and house have caved in a log time ago, but the pumphouse and outhouse are still standing.  The door is missing on the outhouse, though.  The front of it is a turquoise color.  I like shooting it from the back cuz the background is better from that perspective.  I remember the old man that lived here.  When I was a kid, he would walk into town every day (about 3 miles), pick up the priest’s mail and deliver it to him.  Something about this old homestead draws me back from time to time.  I just seem to have a fascination with old abandoned buildings.

    Beautiful photos. I don’t know how far the outhouse was from the main house, but that winter scene just chills my bones. When we first moved to our farm, the only toilet facility available was an outhouse, and I remember it all too well; the scorching heat of summer and the chill of winter, especially. We used it for two years before getting “indoor plumbing.”

    The background of fall trees is lovely and I think that’s the photo I like best. Every photo is so crisp and clear that it’s really hard to pick a favorite.

    Hope you remembered the toilet paper…..
    Great shots I must give the idea a try.

    These photos turn an eyesore into a thing of beauty.
