One wonders what it was - once upon a time. But I think I see railroad tracks behind it. Perhaps it was once a station. #11447328

I like Mitch's suggestion that this might have once been an active train station. Alternatively, perhaps, a farm building? It's interesting whatever it once was, and I love the colors! #11447558

It is interesting to think of what this once was. Well captured, and beautiful light! #11447632

Terry A. Stoa March 16, 2016

I was thinking the same thing as Michele - what WAS this place in its prime? I like that the road is leading us there. #11447697

A favorite. I love the colors, the composing and pov. Love the textures. The shapes and look of the door, the boarded windows, the tin roof. A rustic, beautiful look. #11447823
