Civilization encroaching?

Uploaded: February 06, 2006


15 years ago this farm house was well outside of town. Now it has a Walmart on one side, Meijers across the street, and a new subdivision on the other side (See "Conformity" for the lovely new homes they have for neighbors... :)

F/9, 1/200s, 59mm, ISO-100, Handheld. Cropped and small amounts of adjustment in PSE 4.0.
