    My mother's hobby/passion/obsession is family history so I've been trying to photograph the physical locations which have significance to our family. Fogorig is the ancestral home in which my grandfather's cousins were raised. It was built by one Captain Allen circa 1850.

    The original home was stone and surrounded by lovely gardens kept up beautifully ... it's falling into disrepair now unfortunately

    A very unique barn for the area ...

    damn, these are excellent captures! your compositions are dead on! your focus of the vertical element in the first, subject placement in the third and treatment of the last are perfect. :thumbup: cool borders too ;)

    Must totally agree, These are beautifully done. These would be great additions to compliment your mother's research.
    Give yourself a pat on the back. Great shots!

    Could you still get access into the house or was it too dangerous? Would love to see the views from the house as the area surrounding looks awesome.

    I like the first one - I like what the light was doing to the house. It looks derelict. Any chance of getting inside?

    I've got to come over to visit you at some point. You've got so many good things to photograph and you do them all justice.

    Wow ... thanks everyone ... I myself wasn't terribly happy with the way these turned out so it's nice to hear that they're not so terrible :mrgreen:

    As for getting inside it wasn't something I thought about doing ... I suppose there is a chance of working something ... I'll definately approach my mother about it as she knows the current owners.

    Thanks again for all your comments :D

    edit to add:

    oh and Ferny ... any time ... but it's really not all that exciting here :) You get sick of looking at barns after a very short while :mrgreen:

    I think you have made time stand still in the last, very nice photo.

    I could always find something else to look at . :oops: :mrgreen:

    I keep telling you this and I'm worried it'll lose meaning because of that. But... Every new thread shows and improvement. :thumbsup:
