I photographed this amazing abandoned ranch stopping to answer nature’s call. I was headed to Arkansas for Christmas about 30 miles north of Demming, New Mexico in December of 2018. When you look at a scene like this it really set’s your mind to wondering.
I stood and stared at this and I visualized the old silver tone photographs I’d seen in museums and books over the years. I also wondered how much time this ranch has seen pass by? Why had it been abandoned?
This is pretty much the middle of nowhere about halfway between Demming and Hatch New Mexico on state highway 26. Abandoned buildings and historic ranches are a favorite subject of mine. I find that they look very cool when processed to look black and white.
