Animal House/ Sepia Senes

Shed that once housed animals

This shed is on an abandoned East Gwillimbury farm. Over the past 20 years I have watched this farm slowly fall apart but it was only this past week that I've found the nerve to investigate closely with my camera.

Lovely weathered boards in this shot. A perfect black and white subject. Did you get in any closer?

So who do you suppose owns this land and why just let it fall apart???
Inquiring minds want to know.
It is a super shot but one I find very sad. MB

Wouldn't you love to hear the tails this place could tell? Love this image.

Great historic picture. I just love these old farm buildings. So many like that over here too falling slowly to pieces.

Steffe said...

It's always fun to investigate abandoned places and houses.

Jana said...

Great photo! Hopefully you will check it out some more and post more photos!

If there is not a "no trespassing" sign anything is fair game! Well, within reason, no fair trapesing on on someone's porch to snap a shot of their swing. :D
this is goooood. love all the shades of black.

A perfect subject for a sepia shot! Very nice photograph!

kaye said...

thanks for investigating--great picture

barb said...

I always enjoy your sepia shots, so I decided to play along!

I hope you didn't get too close to Animal House! If you were to look up the definition of precarious, I think a photo of this building would be there!

Chicken wire. I wonder what animals were in there. Great shot as usual, it looks like a rambling place in a movie.

Jacob said...

It's a good thing you got there when you did, as it looks like it might not be there tomorrow if there's any kind of wind!

Super shot!

Houses like that has a lot of history - and have a soul, in my mind. Just imagine what that house has seen!

Great photo - and perfect for sepia!

Beautiful sepia scene, EG... Hope you had a great week/weekend.

We are glad to be home.. It was a wonderful trip --just getting to see my son and family. BUT--the weather was horrible. Oh Well!!!!

I'm going to check through some of your older blog posts.
Hugs,
Betsy

The term 'ramshackle' would be a palace in comparison! It is a shame that when the roof goes the results are like you present here. But it was built an honest building, it just deteriorated due to neglect...a shame

What a lovely old building and just perfect for sepia. It is too bad that some of these old Ontario farms are being left to rot away. I am glad you got a photo before there was nothing left of it.

Beautiful shot rendered timeless by the added effect.

kden said...

Poor little house. You can make any house look good in sepia. Wonderful find.

Bryan said...

Is that door greeting you?

Ken Mac said...

dot said...

I wonder what happened that it was abandoned. Maybe you can find out more.

cool shot. I couldn't have resisted either.

Annie said...

We're on the same track this week. Yours is waaayyyy bigger. Lucky will be the person who thinks to recycle all that lovely barnwood.

my dream home

PERBS said...

Probably someone died without any heirs and no one bothers to take care of it or sell the land. Interesting shot! You are getting to be as brave as me walking up on people's porches to take photos of benches! lol

Ferreira-Pinto said...

It's quite a pity when we see farms left there with no one working the land or repairing buildings, isn't it?

Natural Moments said...

Its like a patch work of multiple dimensions.

Ria said...

This is great! So much history.

Barbara said...

Two words come to mind.....Love it.
