Abandoned Farm Place

On my back roads tour last week I found this abandoned farm place.  Once upon a time I'm sure it was a well loved place.  Oh, the stories it could tell.  I really hate seeing this places going to ruin, but they do provide great photo ops.









I'm linking these to Rural Thursday Blog Hop #43
Hop on over to see all things rural

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!
See you next time

I hate places going to ruin too, but yet they show so much character! Great pictures!

Janet said...

It may well be beyond rescue, but what a life it once had!

Margaret said...

...I always wonder who lived in run down places. It was "home" to someone....

It seems all the blogs I visit, everybody is showing abandoned barns etc. Isn't it sad? I would love to fix one up and live there!

The straw in the window is an interesting photo. I love seeing your bright sun. It has been so dark, cloudy, and gloomy here for days I fear I shall be on an antidepressant by Christmas. xo, olive

Excellent pictures. I wishe I was a wee birdie on your shoulder and could see in life. As you walk and take.

Brian King said...

It's obviously been abandoned for a while judging by the overgrowth. It makes me wonder just how old that place is. Gorgeous photos!

stories ... indeed Barb. That first photograph especially is a charmer

Beautiful shots but I'm with you on this; I hate seeing places just left to rot away.

Beth said...

Great shots! If only those walls could talk.

One can't help but wonder what happened to the folks who once made this their home.

Pam :) said...

I bet the local wildlife loves it too! Great shots, Barbs.

Deanna said...

Oh I know what you mean about the photo ops...we have an abundance of these old run-down, neglected places around here too. You certainly grabbed some great shots of your "photo-op".

Can't you just imagine the stories that could be told about a home that old? My imagination goes wild!

It really takes you back in time to see old buildings like this. I always start wondering who lived there and what their lives were like! I loved your barn this week, too! You are a good photographer!

~Mary said...

These are really beautiful pictures. I like to think that places like these are filled with treasures. But it is a shame that someone couldn't take care of it or pass it to someone in their family.

I know what you mean. I can wonder about the lives lived in these homes and hope they were happy ones. I hope all is well with you too.

Barb, i saw this yesterday while at a dental appointment (not me, husband) and i read my bloggers and now found i haven't commented yet.

now these homes, oh my gawsh, they have a story to tell. my!, if walls could talk........

i love old structures. they send my mind a reeling in wild events, calm moments and a party or a hayride once occurred.

thanks! Barb.

Jori said...

Oh my goodness! These are absolutely gorgeous. I agree sad to see them run down, but they are still beautiful. I bet it was stunning when it was new.

Sending Thanksgiving Blessings to Ya!
