This week’s random picture was taken on a road trip I took down to Hillsboro, Texas a few years back. From what I was told its an abandoned Dairy Freeze in Carl’s Corner, Texas.

Abandoned Diary Freeze in Carl’s Corner, Texas
For my day trip to Hillsboro, I planned a list of places areas to explore. One of my stops was the former Carl’s Corner Gas Station now a Petro station (just a pit stop before continue my exploration) to check out an abandoned building in a middle of field.
Just off from the station there is a small trail road (actually has a name but I can’t remember it) there is an abandoned Dairy Freeze building in a field surrounded by cattle. Not much to it, but I had always wondered what it was, and my research says its a Dairy Freeze.
You can see the building from I-35 towards Waco. Exit the Carl’s Corner exit and take service ramp. Cut across the grass to the trail. Its just a few hundred feet off the barb wire fence on private property.
About the Image
I took this shot by hand with my Sony Nex-3N with the pancake kit lens, then I processed it with Adobe Lightroom to crop, straightened, and remove dust spots from the image. Then I post processed the image with Topaz Labs Clarity to add more texture, remove shadows, boost brightness and contrast.
