minimum maintenance: ruin porn, south dakota style (take two)















we found some more abandoned barns and farmhouses today, down the minimum maintenance roads. i cannot express the delight we have had in exploring these. i know they contain the sadness of abandon, but strangely, we have so much affection for them - all three generations of us. it feels like moments of touching bygone days. and if you could just listen closely enough, you'd hear the whispers of those who lived there.

We explored many abandoned houses when we were kids. We weren't supposed to, but we were allowed to hike all around our little town and so we just did. I love your photos.
