Lonesome Stables

This barn sits unused and uncared for on a piece of land about ten minutes south of my house. The farmland is still sown but the barn is forgotten. A relic of simpler days when horse and ox were the only source of power for plows and carts. Now they use machinery that costs three quarters of a million dollars to do all the work. Not to mention spraying fertilizers and pesticides that cost a pretty penny aswell.

And they wonder why they can't make any money farming anymore.

 

Don't Forget April 30th is Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day
