I didn't see until I got home tonight that the challenge is now changed. But, here are a few I took this afternoon on the way home.

I don't know which I like better. The barn is so hidden in the trees I don't know how they even get into it.

Here is the second one. There is an old abandoned house next to it and a small "house" on the corner I've wanted to photograph for years. Now I had an excuse to do it. Although, I almost got run over quite a few times trying to get these. This road is quite busy at this time of night.

Thanks. It was nearly impossible not to have framing in this shot. So, took advantage of it.

Very nice shots. One of the things that strikes me is the difference between Northern and Southern old farm homes. The steep roof pitches of the Northern homes were a necessity because of snow loading, but the pitches also gives old Northern houses a totally different feel.

I know about the dodging traffic to get a shot. I took the Fordyce Bath House shots early in the morning solely to not have to pop out into four lanes of traffic.

Both shots are great. The framing and colors really make the shots.

Looking at the first shot makes me curious about the history of this building. In the lower left corner, it looks like it has had some serious water exposure, possibly from an irrigation sprinkler. Also, it looks like there are some wood "pegs" sticking out above that mysterious hole in the wall.

Thank you everyone.

I don't know any of the history of the home. I'm not even sure if someone lives on the property. It seemed vacant, although the home had a string of small Christmas lights wrapped around a pole on the porch that were lit. According to the assessors records, the home was built in 1800. It doesn't mention the barn or other building. They all seem to be in about the same disrepair, though. I can't find the deed to see what it says. The book and page in the records seems to be incorrect. If I could find the deed, I could track it back to 1800 and see what it's uses might have been.

Cal, I think what you are seeing are some sort of metal brackets that seem to be bolted into the wall in two places. It looks pretty heavy duty and these boards look pretty flimsy. See below for a straight on zoomed in shot.
