Abandoned farmhouses, you can see them everywhere in the countryside...ignored
by most, completely overlooked by many. The changing face of America has sprouted
numerous abandoned farms and rural houses. There is something solemn and even
sadly beautiful in the textures and colors of these abandoned homesteads, remnants
of bygone times.
