I’ve been scanning many of my color 4 x 5 negatives shot during the last year mainly along back roads from New York to South Carolina.  One of my favorites is this image of an abandoned house near Piedmont, SC.  The house was built in the 30s and for as long as I can remember it has been vacant.  The advantage of shooting in the 4 x 5 film format is that the images can be printed to a large scale without loss of image sharpness.
