Taken 25 March 2012 – Baseline Road, Bureau Co., Illinois, USA. Fuji FinePix E550.

Another abandoned farmhouse in North Central Illinois. Becoming an all-too-often sight…and a somewhat disparaging one, at that. :((

Most of my photos are – more or less – sootc. I’ll tweak contrast and brightness on a few, or convert to sepia or B&W, but aside from that, it’s usually just straightening and cropping. I do have fun with a few pix, but that’s rare for me. I use an old Fuji E550 FinePix P&S, exclusively.

    Ah! Here it is! (You realize, we’re looking for another place??) Hmm. Possibly a little drafty! Nah. Great photo though! I agree, it’s kinda sad; yet I bet there are people who’d be glad to try this out! As it is, maybe these abandoned country houses are a refuge for some animals in need of shelter… kitties, possibly. Racoons for sure! :)

  • Well, Heck! Just browse through my House Hunting portfolio, Nadya…We’re SURE to find something to your tastes! :))

    And that’s what keeps me out of some of these – I sit next to them for a while and listen very carefully for critter activity. I also look around for evidence of them being there. I’d rather just get the exterior pic…than a side case of rabies.
