Root Cellar

Sometime back, I took a couple of shots and converted them to a brownish monochrome styling that I found rather appealing; depending of course on what it was that was being converted.  I found the finish to give the shot an “old time” feel to it.  One was on railroad tracks in Orofino, Idaho and the other was simply a church window that when converted, took on an entirely different feel.

I found several others that I wanted to try and convert.  This was one of them.  I’m not certain what this was but if I were to guess (and as you know, I have absolutely no issues with guessing), I imagine this to be the remnant of an old root cellar; one that at one point in time was full of vegetables, preserved fruits and large burlap sacks of flour and sugar.  It contained everything one would need to get through a North Idaho Winter.   Of course, there was likely a few jugs of hooch in there as well!

  1. Annnnnd, did you check to see if any hooch remained? Do you still have satellite coordinates to this place there, Mike? We might need to do a road-trip. LOL What a great shot! I love the old school look and feel here, very complimentary to the subject at hand!
