Life on the prairie years ago was assuredly not a carefree existence, but the beauty of the rural setting evokes thoughts of an unhurried time, devoid of the trappings of today.
Photo captured at Peck Farm in Geneva, Illinois.

Life on the prairie years ago was probably a lot more isolated than today. This photo captures that isolation so beautifully.
Thank you very much for the comment!
Love the top of the profile pic, too.
A lovely stark black and white – lonely looking. Thanks for visiting my blog Brian and liking one of my shots.
Jude, thanks very much for the comment and visit!
Nice piece of work. While I am not a fan of b/w, it seems to fit nicely here. I, too, like old buildings, as you will find out on my blog f-stop fantasy, in which you were kind enough to Like my Foggy Morning entry into this week’s photo challenge at https://fstopfantasy.wordpress.com/2012/02/22/weekly-photo-challenge-down-2-foggy-morning/
I tried Liking this post, but for some reason it wouldn’t take.
Appreciate the comment, Cris. Thanks for the visit.
Your photos are marvelous Brian.
Jim, I appreciate the comment!
Brian, thank you for the follow. Rural Respite, its just great, in my opinion. All the elements are strong – the textured sky, the rising foreground and obscuring grasses, the lone tree, I like everything about it. Texas is full of barns, but not like this. My dad loved photographing old homesteads and I wish he were still alive to enjoy your blog. I know I will!
Excellent rural Gothic atmosphere in this piece. Looks like an establishing scene-shot from an Alfred Hitchcock film. A very well done composition.
The location for this setting (Peck Farm) is wonderful and lends itself to many photo opportunities. Thank you for the feedback.
