Abandoned Buildings on Old Farm

This is the last in the series. It's an old barn, pretty much overtaken by trees and bushes.

I know I'm a bit late, but this is my entry for My Country Friday. This isn't representative of my entire country, but it's pretty appropriate for my neck of the woods. Agriculture was and still is the heart of my home.

Seems like a place far away in memory.

True. Part of the reason I like the old abandoned spots is I enjoy standing, looking and reflecting. Here, I thought how it must have been when folks would get up early in the morning, eat a hearty breakfast and head out first to the barn, getting ready for a full day in the fields.

It did. Farmers made way for new and improved methods of harvesting, raising crops and livestock. The new stuff doesn't have the rustic look of the old days.

Given way to nature - I like these places!

Me, too. I returned to this spot today. I didn't see any animals, but there are lots of huge mounds of poo, so I guess I'm not the only visitor. :)

It's sorta like you're saying that others like you came to visit, perhaps also to fotograph the scene, and they left behind huge mounds of poo.

Is this part of the Challenge?? =)

When a person begins to feel at one with nature, it is true that the desire builds to leave a bit of oneself behind.
