It’s not spelled the way it’s pronounced. The locals call it “Darty.” (We asked.) There’s not much there anymore, but it used to have a school (through grade 6, then kids were bused over to Floydada), a dancehall, a grocery store.

But now it’s got this skeletal building, slumped against the other one.

  1. Intriguing image – did you shoot it closer as well?


  2. Fantastic. I enjoy seeing your photos everyday! 🙂


  3. A good refuge for the ghouls and ghosts of the lonely Texas prairies … great image.


  4. Well, that’s,the first one down. How long before it pushes the next one over? That might take quite a while


  5. Very beautiful image.. I have to wonder how long ago classes were held at this location.
