I hope everyone had a great, long, Easter weekend. I got two days off in a row, for the first time in a while and got to get out of Dodge and visit some family. It was great. One of the things we always like to do when the family gets together is all go for a walk. This time we got to tour an old family farm property that I was a little more than excited to visit. The property has an old abandoned home and huge old barn on it. I had my camera ready as I wanted to do some texture hunting through all of the old wood and machinery.
Here is the old house that once upon a time housed two families and has sat empty for almost 50 years.
The little addition.
The front door. I sooooo wanted to go in and have a look around. Unfortunately the owner (Uncle Jim) was sick in bed and the place is always locked up.
Check out the detail on the hinges. They just don’t make things like they used to.
The entire place was put together with these handmade nails, incredible.
Old latch on the barn (of which I forgot to take a shot of the entire thing, ugh!!).
Look at the amazing texture and colour on this door.
Milah inside the barn.
More metal work.
The girls climbed up into the loft. Love the colour of the old roof.
This metal piece looked older then the rest.
The old truck in the barn.
You can see a bit of the old stone foundation of the barn here behind Miss Millie blowing her Easter bubbles.
Such a fun afternoon and I just had to share some of the pics with you. Thinking it would be an amazing spot for a photo shoot, hrm… Can’t wait to go back!!
