Photographer's Note

I ever see this old rural timber house in the edge of the highway, but I never had time to stop for a minute and take a photo, even with my cellphone.
These old houses were built with timber of peroba-rosa trees and most of them were dismantled and in the last years many of them were abandoned and the timber were stolen, because it is a rare and precious product.
This house is alive yet. You can see the volcanic black stones in evidence and the brown mango trees whose leaves were killed by the last frosts of winter.
This rural area, named Ponte Preta (Black Bridge), is located near Bom River, borderline with Borrazópolis. You can see some native cacti and these big trees at left are gurucaia trees, native of my region and a specie of pioneer tree, the first that grows up when the forest is removed.

Sempre vi essa casa de madeira na beira da rodovia, mas nunca tive tempo para parar e tirar uma foto, mesmo que de celular.
Essas velhas casas rurais, construídas em madeira, já são raras, a maior parte delas foi demolida e as que restam foram abandonadas e tiveram a madeira de peroba-rosa roubada, já que é raro encontrar madeira desse tipo hoje em dia.
Esta casa na Ponte Preta, pertinho do Rio Bom, ainda está viva. Vemos em primeiro plano as rochas vulcânicas descendo a encosta, ao fundo as mangueiras aparecem com as copas marrons, com as folhas mortas pelas geadas. Na foto vemos ainda cactos nativos e gurucaias, que são árvores nativas pioneiras, as primeiras que nascem quando a floresta nativa é removida.
