Out for a Sunday drive looking for old barns, we have driven this area many time and I have photographed these barns before but it is always fun to revisit and see what you can do differently. The texture and the birds are courtesy of Distressed Jewell. Thank you Jewell.
Please let me know which of these two you prefer.
It always saddens me to see an old dilapidated farm house like this. Someone’s dreams of country living played out here and somewhere along the line their posterities ideas of what was important must have changed. Perhaps the state of disrepair and neglect was slow but sadly it sits here behind a no trespassing sign and a fence. It seemed to have a lot going for it with plenty of water from a running spring, fruit trees and great views of the Great Basin and surrounding mountains. If the former inhabitats can look down and view this place in its current state then I imagine they would be saddened by the sight.
