An abandoned home in east San Diego county. The photo is at night and you can see the remains of a chimney and a partially standing wall. The chimney is illuminated and stands out from the stars in the night sky.

Good Times Past | Abandoned Homestead in East San Diego County

This is the remains of an old homestead in east county. Probably abandoned for at least 70 years or more. I spent a fair bit of time looking for a composition and wandering around the ruins putting my camera in all sorts of different positions. Initially I was thinking of shooting toward the south to get the MW core in the frame but the chimney didn't line up and I wanted that to be the focus. I can only imagine the people who lived here before, sitting around the fireplace enjoying some good times.

Update: I was saddened to learn that the chimney fell over due to very high winds sometime during February 2020.

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 36 inches

30 x 45 inches

Medium: Archival pigment print with acrylic facemount


This is a pigment print where the front has been directly mounted with an adhesive to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective acrylic glass. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to be back illuminated with the light emanating from the image itself. The print comes ready to hang with a hidden mount on the back that floats the print off the wall.

Please allow 4-5 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please contact me for international rates.
