Views from the Country

I often try to take pictures of things while riding in the car. Its hard to get ones that aren't too blurry, but here's a sample of a few taken the other day while hubby was driving.

I thought this one was interesting because of the neglected home and the power pole in the rear view mirror. Creepy. You can tell the house had been painted not too many years ago, but had been let grow up with weeds and small trees.

A close up:

Wouldn't it be a beautiful home if it were remodeled and fixed up?

Just for fun I played around with it with the Picnik website. Picnik is closing its site, so its totally free until some time in April.

There are hundreds of abandoned homes in the country around where I live.

But, this old house has been taken great care of! I call it the Red Roof Inn:

Happy Tuesday!

Love this post. Old houses always catch my eye. Then the thoughts begin. Who lived there. Why did they leave. Probably children lived here in the past. My mind can take me to how it must have been years ago. Thanks for sharing these!

That is neat to see and kind of sad at the same time to see homes abandoned. Yes, it does make you wonder what kind of folks lived there and what their lives where like and why the homes ended up abandoned. Thanks for sharing about Picnik, I never heard of that site.
