We were on our way to somewhere else when we passed this old farmhouse. It provided a few interesting images, the first our view as we drove up.

This is a wonderful composition. I love this old farmhouse with the tall grass around it. A wonderful point of view. These kind of places always appeal to me. 5*

Somebody did a lot of work on this old house and its a shame it is in such decay. i like the style and the brick fireplace. I also like the angle of this photo.

Do you just walk up to these abandoned houses?

@Anita: We drive around back roads exploring. We usually see a likely candidate as we drive by, so turn around. We wander around outside, and if they seem truly abandoned and uncared for, we check whether they are open, then we enter. Sometimes we are challenged, but if we are polite, we are either allowed to continue, or asked to leave. Rarely are we yelled at or threatened.
