Taken 25 March 2012…Baseline Road, e/o Rt. 26, Bureau Co., Illinois, USA. Fuji FinePix E550.

Two sheds that were at the entrance to a farm that was set further back, behind a treeline. Not sure if the farm was abandoned (newer mailbox on the roadside?), but these sheds have sure seen better days. :))

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.

    Great find! I’ve seen some like this not too far from home which are very much in use… things may get a little damp inside but what the heck??? :) Nice one Claude!

  • I’m going to have to spend more time in Bureau Co., with finds like these. And they paved ALL the cruddy roads that were gravel a few years ago – so my truck likes it, too! :))

    Hey, that look like the house I was raised in in New Albany, Indiana. Even the curtains are the same!


    Naturally, I love this. :)
