As I made my way across the country, I spent some time in Huron, South Dakota. These images were made just outside of Huron and then on towards the North Dakota border. This is simply a collection of visions that crossed my eyes as I moved across the landscape.
Love old, dilapidated buildings.
Me too Mrs P, if I’m not careful I make every state look as though it’s falling apart. 😯
I love it!
Looks like a film maker’s heaven – the abandoned buildings are bleak but strangely enticing.
They most certainly are!
I also love old deserted buildings.
I’m surprised how flat the landscape is in this area. Somehow I thought it would be mountainous.
I learned why they call it the Great Plains

That´s an awesome set, tristessa at it´s best!!!
Beautiful images, Russ. The land is so flat! (I live in hilly country.) Abandoned farms always seem a bit sad to me. Lost dreams. Love that leaning shack.
The leaning shack was a favorite. So much of America is looking abandoned in our small towns, it’s very sad to me. And yes, that land is so flat.
It is rather sad. NatGeo had an article a couple years back about all the abandoned houses in the Dakotas. The photos were amazing as you would expect.
I remember that issue, mostly how cool all the old furniture was inside. I didn’t see anything quite like that.
Love the old buildings, Russ. Did you get to the Badlands?
The badlands, yes… of North Dakota
Great set of images. Abandoned buildings always make great subjects and you have composed them nicely.
There are a lot of stories behind those old shacks. Thanks for some great photographs.
Appreciate the kind words, if only that old wood could speak…
