Upstate New York

Farmhouse and barn dating from the late 19th and early 20th century. I used to play in this barn when once filled with hay. We would jump from the hayloft into the bales of hay kept on the lower level. There was a nasty old horse in those days called Nellie. There is a piece of old equipment in the foreground--probably unused since the Second World War, if not earlier. The family who owns this farm has built new homes throughout the property. These ancestorial buildings are maintained but not really occupied any more.

A lovely scene, made more wistful with the memories.

What a terrific photograph! And thanks for the memories...I did the same thing as a kid - jumping from the loft into hay bales below! What great fun!

I did something like that with my brother in a not so different place, lost in the hills of Tuscany...

Great photo, I love to come across buildings which have been abandoned but thankfully not pulled down, they make an interesting subject to photograph!
