I was in South Dakota for my 30 year high school reunion this summer. My Mom and I took an afternoon and went old farmhouse hunting. I did this years ago when my twins were taking a nap in the pickup and found some extraordinary places. To me there is a certain beauty in the textures and decay, but to my mother who was a farm girl there is a real sadness in seeing these places. She could see what I could see and since I grew up kicking around the farmhouses of her youth I could see the sadness as well. My Dad assured me that with a few phones calls before I come home next time that friends of his could arrange some other tours. I hope you can see both the beauty and sorrow in these photos.

  1. Great photographs Lisa. I especially like the farmhouse and fence shot.
    Love the set of taps you have there. That style of furniture is back and I’m sure, with a polish-up, a client would love them.
    You are brave and adventurous, your intrepid photography is not lessened by the occasional spider lurking, but as they say, ‘It’s the ones you don’t see that are nasty’. This was really nice to see, thanks Lisa.B

  2. Enjoyed the abandoned farmhouse. The colours of the home that was inhabited and they are now being stripped away to reveal just a house. A shell for us to muse and wonder about the stories it could tell. Perhaps the spider can spill the beans……… ;-D. Look forward to more posts.
