Disappointing Search for Old Farms

Evidently, as David Plowden cautioned, so many of the old farm buildings have quite literally vanished from the Wisconsin landscape. My friends in Iowa have also told me that the rate at which old, unused farm buildings are being removed from the land appears to be accelerating. The increasing price of land and higher demand for corn persuades farmers to remove any buildings (and, unfortunately even trees) in order to plant as much of each acre as possible.

Despite my disappoint with locating farm buildings, I’m still finding things to photograph. I spent a few hours exploring the interior and exterior of the state capitol building in Madison. It is a grandly impressive structure. Here is one of my favorite finds.

I’ve been driving hundreds of miles around Wisconsin, but have become rather discouraged about finding the subjects I anticipated photographing here.
