Graffiti on a piece of wood leaned against the side of an abandoned farmhouse that is being demolished in rural Allen County, Indiana. One person has painted HELP, and below that someone else has painted NO. A smiley face is painted inside the letter O.


Help. No. Help. No.

Help. No.

This abandoned house is being demolished. People had vandalized the inside of the house with quite a bit of graffiti. This piece of wood appears to have been painted by two different people. One wrote: "Help." Below that, another wrote: "No" with a smiley face painted inside the letter O.

I photographed it in the evening at sunset.

This house is on the south side of Lower Huntington Road, just west of Coverdale Road, a couple miles west of Waynedale in rural Allen County, Indiana.

I have photographed the house, the barns behind it, and the very long rutted lane leading back to the house many times over the years. It was demolished in November, 2017.

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.
