A Country Drive

We went for a drive in the country yesterday. It was a nice drive. We took our cameras along. We looked for old farm building. We found a few. Most of the pictures didn't turn out as well as I wanted. I'm so out of practice.

This is an old silo. The clouds are nice.


An old farm house.

A Country Store. The light awful... sun, clouds... the sun couldn't make up its mind where it wanted to be.

Turner Store

Some old cars. Nice clouds again :-)

Old Cars

The ground was very muddy still so we didn't walk up close to the cars. Maybe better pictures another day.

Benevolence Post Office is the building the cars are next to.

In a split second the sky changes.

Another old farm building. Back to gray skies.

D. M. Dismuke Co. The sky is somewhere between clouds and sunshine. The sun is behind me, but does some weird color on the bare-leaf trees.

This is the plate at the bottom of the door. It states "Dismuke 1910".

I really enjoyed our country drive. I was very exhausted by time we got home. It was well worth it though.

  1. How awesome! Thanks for sharing!
    Wishing you " A Happy 2009.

  2. Beautiful pictures! It doesn't look to me like you are rusty. Those old vintage buildings are hard to find now days. Soon they will be no more. Glad you are out and about again. Have a great week.

  3. Hi Zaroga.
    I am so glad you got to go for a ride. I love all the old places. What fun it must have been. Big hug hope you are doing better.

  4. Very serene pictures. Thanks for sharing and glad you enjoyed the ride.

  5. I love your pictures! Great shots! I love to take photos of things like this.

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed your photos. I love trying to invision what it must have been like with each of those buildings. I think your pictures turned out great and I love how the last one looks with the way the light is on it.

  7. Thanks for taking us along on your ride to the country! I love that. I miss living outside the city.

    When I see an old house like that I imagine a family living there when it was in good shape. Did they enjoy hearing the rain hit that tin roof on a summer's day/?... where are those children now who used to run and play in that yard?

    Great photos!

  8. Oh Zaroga, these pictures are fabulous! They belong in a book! I love country drives. There's something quaint and historical about drives like this especially when you see old buildings. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Happy New Year!!!
