No matter where we go in the country, be it around here, or when we travel, we always see abandoned farm houses and buildings.

In the city, these would quickly be demolished and replaced by new structures.

In the country, it seems that they’re left as a testament to days gone by: to times when a hard day’s work was rewarded with a shelter, a meal, and a good night’s sleep.

Seldom are these structures bulldozed down. They’re left to stand, to lean, and to eventually meet their natural demise, usually via a strong wind.

“Ever since I was two, I’ve loved octopuses, monsters, abandoned buildings”
