I love how you've composed this, Frank! So glad that place "accidentally" burned down... Odd how the burn was contained to the buildings and not the field beyond... smile
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Elizabeth. Hmmm, yes, how fortunate...
"O give me a home where the buffalo roam...." I'll be singing that all day now, Frank, while remembering this image!
Frank L Croston.: The trouble was, they didn't roam, they were penned up I'm told.

The frame makes it look like my 1950's pix. I really like the composition of this image..It does look like blue skies are trying to emerge!
Frank L Croston.: I thought the frame suited it, and yes the blue was trying to get through.

Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Oh.. it is cloudy! Fabulous! I've forgotten what clouds look like.
Frank L Croston.: We have lots of clouds, and rain every day, hope you do soon Alan.

I love the dark clouds here, Frank. I tried to find the story behind the burning down of this house. Must have been "suspicious".
Love your presentation.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Astrid, I don't think any cause was found...So who knows.
Buildings sometimes burn down accidentally but sometimes they don't.

Makes for a good picture either way
Frank L Croston.: No cause has been found it seems, Bill.Thanks.

Well it looks like they have trashed their home.
Frank L Croston.: The buildings had been unused for years Andrew. We drove past the other day and you would never know there had been any there.

The absolute detail of what remains of the buildings is set off beautifully against the hill and eventually against the mountains.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Louis, all gone now, completely cleared.
The people at this homestead would have had a magnificent view of the mountains beyond.
Frank L Croston.: It was actually a trading post with an exhibition of White Buffalos, sacred animals to some native American tribes, apparently they were all relocated to Oregon, it was sometime after the place had closed that it burnt down.

a windmill on the hill would make it complete, Frank smile
Frank L Croston.: Indeed it would, Ayush.
They should be made to clear away their rubbish!
Frank L Croston.: Its all gone now Tom, drove past the other day and it was completely cleared.

A sadly peaceful spot. I like the frame - it enhances the image nicely.
Frank L Croston.: Its ok now Beth, completely cleared. Thank you.
I like the layers of color...
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Larry.
I love the shape of the hills together and like the frame which certainly does make one nostalgic of the old pictures.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Mary.
