This big old farmhouse has been totally abandoned. Looks like some paint work on some of the front was done in the last several years but apparently nothing else. The roof and a lot of the back of the house is in terrible condition.

I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    Nice work Tom. My favorite from a composition point of view is 4.

    Thanks, Cristóbal. In shooting this stuff, I'm often limited by access position, desire to leave certain elements from view, or other issues. #4 is a case where where I had latitude to choose a shooting position that let me work with a greater consideration for overall composition. As always, I appreciate your take on things.

    Nice set. 3, 4 and 6 for the win. That house in 6 would be interesting to poke around in, not that I am suggesting doing that. I'm glad that you included the row of fencing in 3 to give it depth and scale.

    Thanks for your comments, David. There are times when I feel free to wander around the target. I made a quick trip around the old farmhouse but, noticing an interest shown in my presence by some folks near-by, I decided it was best to move on.

    All great shots Tom.

    So very interesting, the history of these structures. What stories they could tell!

    Number 4 is of particular interest...colors and the distinctive "tree." I have seen many barn hex signs and barn quilt signs but, none like this before. It would be interesting to learn its meaning or symbolism.... or significance to the owner.

    Thanks again for preserving mountain history and rural Americana in digital images!

    This barn is located in the heart of a huge area devoted to the growing of Christmas trees. Perhaps that accounts for the image of such a tree on the barn. I wouldn't bet a lot of money on that assumption, however.
