  1. Seth, I got your pictures! They turned out fantastic! I think one thing I’ve learned is to order them in standard sizes so frames are easy to find. A couple of them I will need to custom-frame. So far I have the big black&Whites in black frames – just stunning. The tree art is beautiful. I wish I could upload them in the frame so you could see. Do you have an email? I will send you pix of my wall once I get them all up. 🙂

    Totally Thrilled Customer!!!

    • Thanks Eliz. I am so happy that you like them. It would be awesome if you could send me a picture of them on the wall. My email is

  2. This old building reminds me of an out house keep located close to my hometown, they would sanction guards off to keep watch in these small houses, some not even big enough to lie down in. We used to play hide and seek in them when we were younger.

  4. Seth,
    Thanks for visiting my humble outpost on the Internet. I took a turn through your abode as well. The schoolhouse caught my eye. It reminds me of the Stone School House in Ann Arbor which has found new life… as a preschool.
    Photography is a terrific writing prompt for writers. I’ll definitely keep an eye out for more inspiring images.

  5. This is great! I love looking at old pictures for story inspiration. I think I may just do this once a month or so for some personal writing exercises. Thanks for taking pictures with so many words behind it!

  6. Wow, cool picture. It takes me back to a poem I wrote about my school, my memory being from maybe 7-8 years old. We had really thick windowsills, and we used to let our paintings dry on them in the sun. For some reason on a sunny day, this imagery always stuck in my head, and the way sometimes paint would bubble.

  7. It’s like being in the set of the television show anne of green gables. I loved that show.

  8. I love these pictures. I have a picture of a headstone at a local cemetery on my blog. The stone is marked simply “Mary E” and I wrote a little story about that. Perhaps Mary E attended a school very similar to this one (or perhaps taught at it).
