Adobe Corner

This is a corner of one of the adobe farmhouses that are still standing (more or less) in Big Bend National Park. It’s the first in a projected series that has as it’s theme the contrast between the right angles and geometry of man-made structures and the shapes of the surrounding landscape. A right angle, regardless of how eroded it is, makes me think of the person who must have made it, and what it might have been like to be that person in that place. As I envision the series, they will all be based on historic structures in Big Bend.
