Vintage Scenes, By Gone Days

Time and weather worn scenes now, but one day each had their day in the spotlight.

The old Myer's Barn in Mustatatuck National Wildlife Refuge sits quietly abandoned, but every now and again I feel the need to photograph it once again.

The vintage and well rusted old farmer's Milk Can sat idly by the door of the barn as though it was put there by the farmer many years ago.

The rusted old Wagon Wheel attached to an equally rusted out farm implement used in the fields ions ago stands ready in front of Myer's Barn, hoping to be called upon once again one day.

And last but not least, the old Dodge Truck still sits rusting away behind the barn at the end of the Roaring Fork Nature Trail in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I admit I trespassed to get this image showing the best side of this old Dodge truck, but I promise I closed the gate back and the owner knew what I was up to as he watched from afar. One day called to serve a much needed purpose, now all of these beautiful things are left behind only as evidence to the past. And as fodder for the outdoor photographer. Hope you have a fantastic weekend all. ENJOY!
