We had to go fill up our 6-gallon water container today so we could add some water to our fresh water tank in the trailer. At the Empire Ranch Historic Site, there is a potable water source that we can access. While Jim was filling up the container, I walked around the historic site and in the ranch house taking “architectural” photographs. I was struck by these gingham curtains at the window in one of the rooms. The pretty, old-fashioned curtains contrasted against the cracking, peeling plaster walls just begged to be photographed.
As I walk around the old ranch, it almost feels too familiar to me. Maybe it’s just that it’s so reminiscent of all those western TV shows I watched as a kid. Or, perhaps in some other life, I was raised and lived on an Arizona cattle ranch – who knows!! 🙂
