I took a walk to the abandoned farm next door to capture a "drab" picture for Carmi's challenge. See here for details http://writteninc.blogspot.com/2009/03/thematic-photographic-42-drab.html I wasn't able to take part for the last two because I had no inspiration. Walking around the farm is quite sad and quiet except for the buzzing of flies in the barn. No one has lived there in years. The people who do own it used to love to come here and go to auctions and the house and property has collected junk ooops I mean antiques over the years. The grass hasn't been cut in a few years and the property is totally overgrown. From time to time, people have expressed interest in the property but I believe the owner is reluctant to sell. It was their dream to one day live there. Now I'm sure it's all quite overwhelming. I couldn't decide which shot to post so here is a few.
