This image of a collapsed house on County Road 61 in New Baltimore, New York is composed of 10 individual shots taken at 70mm. My parents live a couple of miles from this house, which I noticed on a morning bike ride, and went back to photograph. I had to wade through a thicket of raspberry brambles to take these images, and I since nothing had leafed out, I wasn't sure whether or not poison ivy vines had been intermingled amongst the raspberry canes. It turned out I was lucky on two counts, because I got the image of a kind of entropic sculpture, and no poison ivy.
