Monochrome #12 - Shadow Shot Sunday #9


John Lafayette Rodman House, Waxhaw, North Carolina


John Rodman built the first cotton gin in Waxhaw in 1906 and soon became the richest man in town. Just a block from downtown, his house stands in the shadows of large oak trees, a reminder of earlier days.

What a fine old house. I like the different roof lines and all the detail on the porch.

Love these old homes near town that seem like they are on a big plantation in the middle of nowhere. Can't you just imagine Aunt Mabel and Uncle Ray on the porch?

Great shot!

B&W is ideal for a fine shot of this old home. Nice work.

What a beautiful old house. I love black and white photos. Thanks for linking me. I would like to live in a house like this and sit on my porch or put a swinging hammock up and lie in the hammock with a cappuccino and enjoy the nature surrounding me. Great photo.
