The Old Homestead – #2

Here is another homestead that’s been abandoned for quite some time. I took this awhile back with my son, Aiden. He was a real trooper… we had to walk quite a ways in the snow to get to this spot. He was a little tired when we got there, so Dad got to carry him and my gear back to the car. Dad was tired after that. ๐Ÿ˜€ In series such as these, I’ll provide links at the bottom of the post to some of the other pictures in the series.

Also, if you want to check out a shot from Aiden on this same day, check out the ‘Lone Tree’. He might have had a little help setting the shot up, but he clicked the button all by himself! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve provided a B&W vintage version only because that’s what I’m printing..

Chris Nitz I really like the setup on this. That building looks to be in good condition if it is abandoned. It amazes me how far out into the middle of nowhere people will put a house, but this one does have a gorgeous backdrop!

Jason Hines Looks like a great place for a house if you don’t want many visitors. Great shot, I love the foreboding looking clouds.

Scott Ackerman Great find. I think I prefer the vintage one as well, but I like the color shot very much too.
