Whenever I’m out exploring the back roads of Texas I like to keep an eye out for interesting sites along with old farm houses, barns, and vehicles. A few years ago a made a trip out to the Abilene area for business reasons. During my week I took advantage and took mini road trips each day that no more than two hours away from the hotel and work. On one of my stops just out side of the little town I working in I came across an abandoned farm house and GMC truck sitting on blocks.
Abandoned Farm House and GMC Truck sitting on Blocks
Finding the abandon farm house and GMC truck sitting on blocks not only gets me the abandoned farm house and abandon truck, it gets me interesting I’m always looking for as well. So I had to stop and take a closer look.
The house is like many old farm houses you find in west Texas. The house looks like it might have an addition added some point but since I couldn’t get closer I didn’t really have the chance to see it on all sides. But what I will tell you is that it’s seen better days.
As to the truck. Its an old farm truck and its beat up and rusty. Its ready for a rusto mod and get it her back on the road again. This era of GM trucks are some of my favorite and one day I plan to get one.

About the Images
The images were shot by hand in the mid afternoon sun with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8. I then edited the images in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the images. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the images.
