Before and After: Abandoned School House

My favorite abandoned structure along Highway 2 west of Coulee City. I love the tagged interior, extra moldy recliner, and remnants of youthful disrespect for such a historic school house abandoned to progress.

This photo was captured on a tripod and included 5 frames at different exposures. My final edits were completed in Photomatix Pro, Topaz De-Noise, LightRoom 5, and PerfectPhoto 10.5.

Before: Not bad even with minimal editing.

After: Super dynamic after merging 5 frames and applying proprietary editing applications.

Kennedy said this about the American farmer, “The farmer is the only man in our economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale, and pays the freight both ways.”

I am sure that many of America’s hard working future farmers were educated under this roof in Eastern Washington. We are reminded of days gone by in America. We are reminded of progress in technology that enabled obsolescence of this school house and many of the abandoned structures along Highway 2 in Eastern Washington.

I am including this Abandoned School House image as a NEW Limited Edition offer so you too can remember the American farm, farmer, and our past history of values and respect.
