The town of Goodnoe Hills was settled in the 1860s. There are just a few deserted buildings left. The windmill that was part of this old homestead looks like it is envious of its cousins on the hilltop. Note the plowed field in the background.

A look at the past and the present.
Wonders Photo

Nice shot Bill. The alignment with the turbines in the background is perfect. Photographing abandon buildings is a favourite of mine.

For us from Europe, these landscapes seem actually incredible. Like in movies...

What a lonely sight...did you look inside?

Granny Annie said...

This was once someone's home. Your picture fills me with imagining.

Hello Bill,
This is so nice. A great picture.
You have done this so well.

Greetings, Marco

El viejo molino aguantó el paso del tiempo. ¿Aguantarán igual los nuevos?
Me da la sensación, Bill, que hasta que ahí no entre la nueva administración la situación de la pandemia va a cambiar poco desgraciadamente. Ánimo que ya falta menos.
Un abrazo y cuidate.

Cuánto más estéticos esos viejos molinos de viento

I doubt that many (any?) of our modern homes will last nearly as well. Or as beautifully.

Look like a movie decor 😉

That's a nice scene, old and new..but those hills look fairly bare...cold I expect and of course windy.

Taken For Granted said...

Your photo shows the evolution of the windmill, and the building shows the failed dreams of a family.

Superbe! J’entends le balancement d’un rocking-chair dans la maison, les volets qui grincent et les pales rouillées du moulin qui tournent au ralenti...

Very beautiful picture with history
pity only on the modern wind works in the background

I agree with Pierre. And it's true it looks like a movie set. It could be in a wim wenders film. The contrast between wind mill and wind turbine is very striking. There is a kind of melancholy in this picture

It's an amazing picture. The opposition between past and present is very striking. It could be a film set. A wim wenders movie for instance...
