Description: (4x5 Film) When I entered this farmstead I was initially drawn to the sweep of the collapsing ceiling in the kitchen. In setting up my camera, I used a wide enough lens to capture the empty light socket in the ceiling which creates a diagonal counter point to the hand pump at the sink.. To me this image tells a story of early convenience. Having a hand pump right at the kitchen sink! No need to go out to the well for water on those cold winter days.
