Almost unattached

The last building I posted wasn’t attached. This one is! It’s hard to know what that little shed-like building is, so I’m guessing it’s a shed. It’s funny how that usually works to guess like that. Driving by at 55 MPH while shooting these shots left the composition kind of awkward, which I really like. I’m just going to keep making them/posting them like this. I also made a black & white. It’s always interesting to me how the mood changes from a color version to the monochrome.

Allen Joubert’s in disrepair

Acadiana is a rugged and beautiful place. I like the contrasting bits of everything about the place. You roll up on amazing things you’d never imagine that still manage to come off as though they were meant to be there. Nothing is affected; it’s all very permanent. Even what is falling into some kind of decay looks like it will be there forever. I’ve been wondering what happened to Allen Joubert’s Feed Store ever since snapping this a few weeks ago while riding by in the backseat of a friend’s car doing 55 MPH. All I could find was this legal situation he got into during the early 60s. This place looks like it’s been in disrepair since about that time.
