Gate to Abandoned Orchard
Down a lane in the Cedar Heights neighborhood of my hometown of Cedar Falls, Iowa is an abandoned orchard left from when this was farmland and not residential. This iron gate is a curious remnant of another time. Recently, the land changed hands. The scuttlebutt is that the new owner will be building multiple new homes. When I got back from my recent trip to California, I sensed it was now or never if I wanted to capture this artifact in a drawing.
