vine covered

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

No longer serving their original purpose, many of the larger silos are covered in vines. The old barnyards stand unused and the one element that always seems a bit spooky to me is the ever present basketball hoop.

The mind wanders to a time when teenager farm boys shot some hoops after finishing their chores. In all my driving around and photographing I've never, ever seen anyone shooting hoops.

I had once wanted a silo so I could build my personal library in it, and I looked at a piece of land with an old brick silo. Don't like all of the stairs though.

If you drove by my place, you'd see a teenage boy shooting hoops in the dirt every day and a dad planning a concrete slab for ...parking of course...
