Everything There Is To Be Known....










Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge
 and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you,
 you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.....Winnie the Pooh

Wow! Love those old homesteads. I think all of us prim lovers have a soft spot for abandoned buildings. You wonder about the lives lived there.

Photos of Old home places hold so many unknown stories. Just as everything that goes on around us. Love that Winnie quote, and so true it is if you give it some thought.

OH I needed to read this post this evening HUGS Robin

Love old homesteads...families born, raised,lost, and started again. How many family dinners, squabbles, and happy times were held there. Pooh, what a silly old bear!! :)-Jan

Some of those shots look like they could be taken over here,....there was one old run down place that I used to joke was our homestead.

So ... is it still cold there too?

"Like an old friend
You stand worn and tattered,
Once full of life
with things that mattered."
Two words comes to mind when I view old homesteads, simple serenity!!

About saved my daughter's life one day from leaning over the bridge too far. One of my most favorite things to photograph are old barns and houses. I really appreciate this post. I could never pick a favorite, but I do lean towards the wood. Thanks for all your wonderful and genuine comments ony blog. I always smile to see you have been by. Have a good weekend. -Steph-

I used to walk those old train trussles and watch that creek flow by, and my old homestead is gone forever, replaced by a highway.

Woman Seeking Center said...

Beautiful soulful haunting images!

Your images in concert with the words of Milne/Pooh you remind us that one of the great truths of living is this:

One can learn the most significant aspects of life in the simplest of lessons. Lessons illustrated within the most available (tho 'oft overlooked) venues...

Thank you for the beautiful reminder :-)

PS I offer a challenge for a friendly game of pooh-stix! :-)
