Always take the back roads

Last week I went to check out a building site related to work, and I used the opportunity to take a back road to see if there were some treasures along the road. Indeed it was!

A well-kept tractor, obviously not abandoned:


Proof that the often modeled "tent" effect is not just a myth:


A small sawmill:


All this was found within a distance of 3-4 miles.

There's a Facebook group called 'The art of decay NZ' that features photos of this ilk on a daily basis collected by the various members on their travels around New Zealand.  Some real gems amongst the merely average for sure.
Cheers,

Great pics! The sagging red building, and the abandoned block building in Utah, would both be fun modeling subjects.

Not really back roads, but off the main highway and within easy walking distance from home (or were within living memory):

I'll pass on the corner!  Nick's is full and the others have scary, heavy set grannies in thongs with bad teeth, saggy bellies, and creepy thighs who are waiting for Russ.

Thank goodness those old structures still exist. Very few seem to remain in California. -- Russ
