Clairemont, Texas

19 Dec

Clairemont Texas is located on US 380 in Kent County East of Post. This photo was taken sometime in 2006. I’ve been back in 2007 and the door had been painted a burnt sienna color. I prefer the graffiti. This old red sandstone jail house is in pretty good condition really but graffiti and vandalism is a problem in remote areas such as this along a busy highway. This is known as the Kent County jail. It is quite interesting though to be here under a full moon.

More information on this jail can be found HERE.

    It takes a sharp & wonderful eye to find the Art in the ordinary & the commonplace. I especially appreciate the second photo. It’s almost cinematic!

    Happy Holidays!
