Abandoned barn – Hamel, IL

There is a barn near my parent’s farm that has been in a state of decay for years.  I’ve wanted to photograph it for as long as I can remember (since moving down here in 2006), and finally got the gumption to do so on Saturday.

And across the road from my parent’s farm is a former one-room schoolhouse.  It’s currently used at a “man-cave” repair garage.  If I owned it, I’d most likely rehab it as a residence.
