Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge

"One...."

One House
all alone in the midst
of a very large field.

I chose this as my subject because the day is not long
until this will be a rare sight. Hungry developers are gobbling up
every spare bit of farmland in my county, building 3 houses per acre,
then high-tailing it back from whence they came with the cash in their pockets.

Olympus C-765 UZ
1/320s f/4.0 at 18.5mm iso64 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

3 per acre? Luxury. Nearer 10-15 including flats here! What a superb scene.

I can't understand why they would do that in the USA where space isn't as limited as it is here in the UK. Still, its a very nice photo.
