Fond Memories

by Eric J H Joyce January. 27, 2008 3204 views

The grainery was the last building to go on my late grandfathers farmstead. The new owners wanted a fresh start from the ground up. Some see the old buildings as an eyesore, I see them as a vision of the past, hard work and tough people who knew what real work is all about. My parents still own all of the farm land which I hope will always be in the family. Every summer as I was growing up we visited the farm, I will always have fond memories.

Dramatic shots...glad you still have some good memories but that makes me sad to see these buildings that are such a part of our history just torched. Those first two shots are beautiful!

That is so sad that they burned it down.
