Beauty and Frailty

Every year we make the drive from Arlington to New Mexico along US 287 for our family holiday in the mountains. Each year, I long to stop and take a closer look at the old cotton field farm houses in Memphis, TX. Well, recently, I finally had the opportunity to stop at a few of them.

Some would say they look sad, but I believe that houses, like people, have a lifespan. These houses remind me of elderly women - frail, full of memories of a life only she will know, resigned and breathtakingly beautiful.

This particular house is located at approximately 2769 US 287 in Memphis, Texas. I have a couple more of this homestead in my Flickr.

More on these houses in future posts.
