More old farm houses

Recommended Posts

I guess I am attracted to these old houses since I live in a 100+ year old house in a rural area, and I love the history. I drove down to Sioux Falls today from Cottonwood, and was determined to finally take a picture of this house before it fell down.


This house was a happy find while giving my hubby rides so he could move equipment this afternoon. On the back roads I was driving down, my van was almost attacked by a goose protecting her goslings - all of whom were running down the center of the gravel road! It was pretty funny. No geese or minivans were hurt during this excursion.

Handheld and cropped.

Now that second image in particular is a total winner in my book. Great comp, with the horizontal lines of brown grass, green grass, green trees and blue sky setting off the blockiness and diagonal roof lines of the old house.

Did you get in close for any detail work? I've had a couple commissions shooting old farms and other buildings, and the emotion that can be drawn from detail shots is sometimes surprising.

Excellent work here!

The only way to get up there was a really soggy looking field road. I didn't want to chance getting the minivan stuck - which had almost happended earlier. That whole area is pretty wet right now.

    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .

    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
