Gambrel Roof Farm House

One from the archives, somehow overlooked for a time, our subject visited way back when – wow – close to a year and a half ago. This, an old farm house, a rather modest-sized one, with a gambrel (or barn style) roof, weather beaten, open the elements and long forgotten. Standing there, lonely at the edge of a field somewhere down a dusty backroad. Imagine all the memories, the good times, the hard times, the blistering cold winters, the searing sun of July.

The house is close to a century old but it’s been many, many decades since anyone called it home. Well, the pigeons have taken up residence, as they often do in these places, making a great mess of things with their droppings. An owl, camera shy, was seen circling about, helping control the population of these winged rats.

It’s a brief stop. We say our goodbyes, it’s a nice little diversion, this charming farm house, on a long and dusty road trip. Maybe one day we’ll come back to shoot it again, spending more time with it. To know it better. There’s more of story here, on that we’re certain. The owner didn’t tell us, we just know.

Our absolute most favourite abandoned farm house…

Short Subjects: reports that for any number of reasons are brief in nature. They might be updates to older articles, previews of posts planned or not yet published, brief snippets of things that don’t fit in anywhere else or subjects that are so obscure that information on them can’t be found. Or sometimes we just ramble on about Lord knows what.

If you need any more information on what we talked about here, by all means contact us!
