Photo-a-Day - Sept 2012 - Day 1: Abandoned Building

Photo-a-Day - Sept 2012 - Day 1: Abandoned Building
Abandoned buildings intrigue me.  I wonderful at their history, their purpose, and the people who owned them.

I've passed this building in Sonoma a number of times.  The forward building was clearly a garage, probably for farm equipment.  But why the back slanted roof?  What was use of the building in the back?  It's clear that someone maintains the fence, yet the buildings themselves appear to have been unused for some time.

The other thing I found interesting about this shot is that, due to its greyed and weathered wood, the facade of the front building almost appears to have been shot in black and white, yet the photo is clearly in color and has not been software enhanced.

Do you find yourself wondering about the abandoned buildings you pass.  Or do you just pass them by.
