Yet More Abandoned Buildings

With windchills into the -40s, it is easier to pull up some images from warmer days to post so here are a few more abandoned buildings. It would seem there are lots, but every year I drive around there are fewer left standing.

Trespassing and vandalism are not as big of a problem around here as some areas, but does happen from time to time. Some landowners worry about the risk of someone entering these old building and getting injured and some are just fed up with people trespassing without asking permission.

This one isn't too far from home. There isn't much else left on the property and not much close by. The little bit of haze isn't fog, but dust from a vehicle that had gone by. Not a big house, but it still seems pretty sturdy.

Another one close to home. It's a beautiful old barn with a few other outbuildings out of frame. I've always liked the way the tree is here, but recently when I went by, the tree had been damaged by snow or a wind.

This one was taken near Smoky Lake in Alberta. I have shot this in the past and it was holding up pretty good but is now close to collapsing in. You can't tell by this angle, but just on the other side there used to be a railway line that ran past. The railway has since been removed and converted into a multi-use trail.

This one is in southern Manitoba and still looks fairly solid. It is set well back from the road on the edge of the field. There is no access road which keeps the vandals out and the trees offer it some protection from the weather.

Not a large house by any means, but probably more than adequate for a decent sized family in its day.

Thanks John.  I think I have a few too many in my catalogue, but I still enjoy shooting them.
