The Old Homestead

 About 25 miles to the East of my house is this homestead.  I've watched it through the years.  When I was still in high school it had a windmill for pumping water into a trough.  That has long since fallen.  There used to be a few more buildings, but all that's left now are two cars, two farm implements, and two buildings.  I doubt if the one below quite counts as a barn, but it IS an out building and that's close, right?

 I hope you'll click on over to Barn Charms and see some of the barns there.  I've been out of the mix lately for a variety of reasons, many of which center around being a parent of a two year old.

AWESOME shots, Jim! The old truck is so cool, esp how you 'freaked' it out like that! LoL! And ya can't beat the perspective w/ the old structure in the background. The 2nd counts as a barn, in my opinion, anyway! And the last 2 shots are icing on the cake... love that sky! =)

We all understand about having missed a few Barn Charm posts... thanks for joining this week! =)

When I look at old buildings I get a feeling of nostalgia, and I think to myself they used to be young and freshly painted as I once was.
Well, maybe not painted,but you know what I mean.
