Yesterday’s outbuilding unveiled.


In this series, the fog is a visible presence.





If you would like to place this building in context, the final shot is from a post I did in early August.


Next time: Hey! What about that big red building?

    A fruitful photographic trip, but of course it “wood” be in that fog. 🙂

    • Thank you, LD.

      I tread carefully round these old buildings, fearing some cranky old wood dragon, reeking of caffeine and croissants, might suddenly emerge from the depths.

      That, and stinging nettles. I once knelt in a patch of stinging nettles.

  2. Lovely pictures. I love the charm of run-down buildings. (Suzanne)

  3. Jane Lurie says:

    Serene with the fog. A quintessential barn– beautiful captures, Patricia.

    I love this sequence – I miss my farm!

  5. Schwister says:

    These photos bring back good memories of exploring the countryside around my hometown in Columbia County and finding these abandoned houses and farms. You have such an eye for seeing the mystery and unique beauty of these places.

    stinging nettles. Sign of a healthy soil. Used to be all around our old chook house.

    • Really? (I had to look up the term “chook house”–thought maybe it was a privy!) There is a Dutch cheesemaker who relocated to western Wisconsin and she/they make a stinging nettle gouda cheese that is just delicious.
      I haven’t knelt in it, of course…
