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 stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?
