American Dream

The last house on the street and it’s slowly decaying away, along with the rest of the small ghost town of Cuervo, New Mexico.

Great conditions afforded me the time to really play with the framing and exposures of this shot. I’ve shot this town several times but usually as an afterthought.

This was a planned trip this time so I had the time and freedom to really try some different things out.

In the end, this shot just really called to me and although a bit sad it really drives home how much of our country is crumbling away and quickly disappearing.
