Abandoned and disappearing...

j'aime bien ces vieilles fermes abandonnées et comme je suis curieux, avez vous fait un tour dedans pour voir ce qu'il restait des souvenirs des anciens proprietaires ?

I always wonder about the story of these places...this looks built low to the ground but doesn't look all that old to me....not like some anyway.

Sailor said...

It does not look old, may be the bad economy.

This is sort of a sad scene. What happened, it looks like a nice enough piece of property. Looks like no one has been there for quite some time.

Oh, and I should have known there were hitching posts downtown!

Ashes to ashes.

I hate seeing stuff like this when there are so many people who would give it a little TLC.

Abandoned and a the same time cosy. Think one would be able to make a fine place out of this.

The experiment is interesting. I do see changes, not only in the weather, but even in the light, which influences on the colors of the sky. Shal be fun to see the final result.

I was scared of dentists in the past. Now I found this very good dentist who signals calm. Now I'm not afraid anymore, but I can honestly say - I'm not going there unless it's absolutely necessary-:)

Have a joyful day!

It is sad to see. I wonder if we went inside we could hear whispers. MB

Until I learned about your blog this is pretty much what I thought Florida was all about (except for a few places like Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Cape Canaveral of course). In many ways I hate seeing the new take over the old but that is happening big time in the Toronto area too.

SRQ said...

I wonder what the story is with that place. I can read a realtor's description now: "Cozy fixer upper in a pastoral setting with Florida friendly vegetation".

Is this a farm? An outbuilding on a horse farm? Just a house? I'm confused... again.

I love abandoned buildings... I would have risked traspassing to get closer shots.

I wonder how long it's been sitting empty. Between 1992 and 2002, I worked consulting on long term projects and I would be away from my home weeks at a time. Even though my house was a condo with common walls on both sides, being empty so much took a toll on it too. When I'd come home for a few days, I'd find things that needed to be fixed. It was a good thing my parents were around at the time so they could spend time there during the week letting in the various repairmen.

Funny how an old abandoned place, over grown with weeds, is so very picturesque! Nice find.

Lois said...

A sad picture! It looks so lonely.

Tricia said...

Was it a ranch there in Fl? Wonder why they hit the road?! Wonder how they could afford to hit the road... I always think about that when I see an abandoned place! =)

Charlotte said...

WoW - 10 hours sleep. That is wonderful! I manage to sleep for 9-10 hours on Saturdays - it's so nice.

I'm sure teeth will adjust to me and I to them in a couple of days xD

Hope you enjoyed your golf round ....

I wonder what the story behind places like this is.

Beautiful place!
