Oppressively Somber

Oppressively Somber Abandon Old Creepy House

Oppressively Somber

What once was a strong and sturdy shell has become oppressively somber standing among the overgrown thicket outside her front door.

For many years she remained strong and sturdy, able to withstand anything thrown at her. Until one-day things become too difficult. The weight of the world came crashing down and rendered her useless.

Even in her darkest hours, you can still see her strength and beauty she possesses.

Old Brick Building in Oconto County

An old brick building in Oconto County, WI. I believe this building was once used as the general store in a country area. Now, it is covered with rich, green ivy.

The advantage about traveling the backroads to get to additional UTV trails is that you get to see plenty of old gems.

Inside the Old Cabins Smoky Mountain National Park

 

Inside the Old Cabins Smoky Mountain National Park – We ventured out into the heavy wooded areas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park trying to locate the old section of cabins on this visit.  Our first attempt was unsuccessful.

We stopped at a local country shop and the gentleman there knew exactly what I was wanting to see and drew us a map.

The cabins were to be met the wrecking ball the following week. With the help of the gentleman’s directions, were successful.

The heavy rains didn’t stop us, but the trees and rain took out our umbrella and we were a muddy mess when everything was said and done.

Red Country Barn In Fog

Red Country Barn in Fog Photography Print - One never knows how long the building will be around. It is becoming more evident to me as I age. A building or barn that was there one year ago, isn't today. Sad really, because the first settlers to our country built them. They are our history. They are our stories. The contrasting red country barn caught my attention in the light fog.

Life’s up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.

–Marsha Sinetar

 

The things you go through in life, they make you.  They shape every fiber of your being.   Today, things have settled down. When I look back, I see why I have a greater appreciation for wildlife and nature. Neither ask anything of me, or judge. Peace and quiet.  Centered by nature.  A place I can breathe.

But life is about experiences. Sometimes, walking in someone else’s shoes helps to understand and relate to someone else. We need this in life.  Who knows, you may even gain knowledge, understanding, peace and even comfort in an unlikely place.  Like this church has done for me.

The Red Barn Made Me Do It

No Officer – The Barn Made Me

I pulled off on the side of a county road to take a picture of this barn in Brown County, WI. The red barn stuck out beautiful against the snow.

As I was grabbing my camera out of the back of my car an officer stopped and asked if I needed help. It was a nice gesture.

Why Were Barns Painted Red?

He asked me if I knew why most barns were painted red. I did, but really wanted to hear his version. Pretty much the same as I had heard.

 

Barns were painted by using linseed oil long ago. That gave them a reddish orange look. Some farmers added rust to the linseed oil because it helped to kill algae and prevent it from growing on their structures.
