It is everywhere I look. Rural decay abounds on my small, old country roads. Old farmhouses, buildings, and barns are the majority of my pictures.
Farms are plentiful in my area. And not just old farms, but real working, American farms.
With those farms come farmhouses in all states of disrepair.
More often than not they are left to decay as a mere memory of who might have lived there. Typically it is a reminder of the generations that established the farm before our times.
It is also a bit of a statement of our times as well. Neither the money, nor the time, are often available to resurrect these beauties to their former glory.
But, I think they possess a beauty all their own. Chipped paint, doors askew, and dilapidated porches beg to be photographed.
At least in my book they do. My attempt to bring a bit of their former beauty to life.
