» Grandpa's House » Grandpa's House: The End #2

 

A cinderblock foundation and piles of ashes and shingles on the ground are all that remain of my grandparents house after it burned to the ground.

 

 

Grandpa's House: The End #2

This is all that remains of my grandparents house, after it was burned down in August, 2012. Standing on the cinderblock foundation that defined the outside dimensions of the house, it looked so tiny. The house was small by today's standards, but it seems so much smaller now, shorn of its walls and furnishings.

Hard to believe this place was my grandpa and grandma's home for nearly 60 years. I spent a lot of my childhood here, it was like a second home to me, and now it is gone.

Grandpa died in 2010; and in the summer of 2012, his children sold his house to the owner of the reception hall next door. The new owner of the land allowed the fire department to burn the house down as a training exercise for firefighters.

by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
