Arbon Valley, Idaho

Two weeks ago I rode my motorcycle through Arbon Valley and I saw numerous photo opportunities.  I was pressed for time so I couldn't stop but Saturday I was able to make a return trip. Here are a few hand-held photographs.  

This old house had been pulled off its foundation and was sitting out in the pasture just begging to have its picture taken.  I stopped at a nearby ranch house to ask permission to take photos.  The friendly rancher just happened to be the owner and told me to take all the photos I wanted. Hopefully he'll check in here on my blog and leave a note.  There was still a little smoke in the air from distant forest fires but otherwise it was a beautiful day.  A few Ansel Adams clouds would have been nice.

The roof is an amazing contrast to much duller landscape. It makes me wonder about the owner and how such a roof ended up in such a place. It invokes inspiration to resist giving in to the mundane. Besides all that it looks really cool. I would definitely hang a signed print in my home.
