I needed out of the house yesterday. Too sad all the memories. So we went for a drive in South Dakato's back roads. What wonderful old buildings. I was thrilled to find this old homestead from 1869.
Just think, all the wood, all the work on this old house was done by hand. This was fancier then alot of the old homes, 2 stories, gables..... I love this old building.
This next old barn is pretty neat also but I couldn't get a clear shot. Check out the windows on it!
I look at these old homes, the children have moved and don't want to farm, the buildings just fall, abandoned.
Also we saw some great old barns. Some didn't look like they still should be used but they are....Some are huge and look in good shape.
Almost overnight the soy beans started to get yellow. Fall is here.
The bank in Gayville is empty as are most of the banks in small towns these days. This would make a cute little house and we have seen quite a few remodeled that way
One family built their own observation tower on top of the hill.
As usual I took a ton of pictures. I am more a picture taker then a photographer. I look back on my pictures and remember fun trips and happy times. A nice drive on a special day.
I am excited. I finally bought a CIRCULAR POLARIZER LENS FILTER and can't wait until I get it to try out. Should help with the soon to see snow pictures. I also bought photoshop element 4.0 and will be getting that soon. I plan to take out the wires in that old house picture plus the disc in the front yard.
