Left Behind and Waiting



The grain/feed conveyor has outlasted the the barns, tractors and most of the guys who worked on it. It, along with the sail boat and the old Coke bottle each were left with the intention of being retrieved at some point. They still wait. I can't help but think that the conveyor and the sail boat in particular were in full use during a time that we look back on now as a time when life was simple, politicians were honest and children respected their elders. I wonder if 50 years from now the next generation will think the same thing of our time. I hope so.

Thanks oldpoet, your comments are appreciated. Photography is my therapy, I wish I had more time to dedicate to it.

I too stumbled upon your post and am so glad that someone like you feels so much about this area. I am writing a book on Bethania to be published this year by the History Press on the scenes you show. My research has taken me so deep into the history that I ride almost daily through the fields and old roads that are burried beneath the ground. I am not a photographer and am wondering??
