Time has continued to take its toll on this abandoned farmhouse which was completely collapsed when I returned in April, 2013.

Tallahassee, FL - United States

Thanks, Cindy. I recently happened upon this great site not too far from where I live! The sweetest thing was that white spring bulbs (paperwhites) from some long-time-ago garden in front of the house were still blooming. Didn't get them in this photo, but they were so charming.

Grants Pass, OR - United States

Wow! It's amazing that the chimney is still intact! Great capture! I love the character that old buildings portray... v/f

Thanks, Ms. Judi! And I appreciate the suggestion of trying this in B & W... I haven't done much with B & W, and just don't often think along those lines, so the input is helpful and appreciated! One of the things I love about FAA... encouragement and inspiration from a lovely community of artists!

Renovator's delight, or nightmare!!! But also rather charming as is, I thought. Thanks for the vote and comment, Therese!

Thank you, Jeff G., Jeff S., and Cindy! I was so pleased to come upon this abandoned farmhouse. I am hoping to get a shot of it which also captures the flowers blooming in the little abandoned garden in front of the building. I think its gonna require lying down in thick vegetation to get the shot... Must go prepared for that... Don't think about snakes, don't think about snakes, don't think about snakes... So if you ever see such a photo, you will know I really worked for it!!

Thanks! I thought it was a little eye candy, notwithstanding its condition... and maybe because of it!!

It might have seen better days but it's great to look at.

Tallahassee, FL - United States

Carol, :) ..... and Joan, thanks! My Aqua Porch Swing photo came from this building, and I have a window shot from another side of this building that I still need to post. The best part of this farmhouse was that its little front garden is still there, and had paper whites blooming. As dilapidated as the building is, with the little garden it was still charming.

Richfield, OH - United States

What a great find, Carla! Great image!

Bellingen, NS - Australia

like me sometimes, it certainly has seen better days!
