Went exploring with a couple of friends and cam across this abandoned farmhouse. Not much left, but I took a few shots,

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

Looks like it has a few sad tales to tell . .

@Ronnie 2¢: All these places have tales - some have to have been happy places for families before coming to their dismal ends.

Your shot of this place certainly shows the decay. I like the others parts of the image too. Nice detail and taken from a good viewpoint.

I am interested in the house covering. Its multicolor is kind of nice.

The colored wooden or stone panels on the house are beautiful!

@Lewis: I believe that is asphalt sjeet siding, no longer made or used.

Looks as though the landscape is taking the farmhouse over. There is something eerie about the chair left undisturbed on the porch.....as if people left at a moment's notice.

A marvellous find. I am interested in the cladding on the outside it is the same all the way up. So I do not think it is stone, but that is what it looks like.

@Philnz: I am pretty sure it is asphalt sheet siding, much like the asphalt floor coverings used until the late 1950s. The siding I have seen comes in many different patterns and colors, and is usually sprinkled with a rough gravelly surface that makes it feel much like sandpaper.

I think the garden could use some care. I like that chair on the porch.

These are such sad images. Do they get you down?

@Anita: It is fun seeing the things that people leave behind. Yes, a bit sad, but things always change.
