Abandoned farm in CT

I just thought I would share a few pictures from an abandoned farm I found while cruising through CT a few days ago.  I love stumbling onto sites like this.

Abandoned locations can hide but they can't run

The farmhouse is unfortunately boarded up, at least on the first floor.  I tried climbing up to an open second story window this morning and almost wound up killing myself haha.  But, I did manage to monkey my way up to the top floor of the barn which was pretty neat.  I found a pillow and some blankets, so someone is squatting here I guess.  Here's a couple more pics for ya'll.  The rest are in my photo album.

nice shots SM (including the ones in your album)
It can be very difficult to put an artistic spin on an abandoned location. Good eye.

He has alternate webspace MW.

What he does it upload them to his webspace, such as what skully/dakiel do when they put them on the site.  It gets loaded to the webserver then you can link to the pictures remotely by doing this


[img src="www.yourpicturesURLhere.com/subfolder/picname.jpeg"]

replacing the [] with < and > sympols

a good free webhost is www.imageshack.us

and once you upload a pic you can find the URL of it by right clicking it, going to properties, then copying the ADDRESS: line as shown in this picture (linked for size)

You're all very kind with your feedback on my pictures, I really appreciate it.

MW, I'll take you step-by-step as to what I do to post multiple pics in one post (it's pretty much the same thing Rally described).

1.  Take your photos and upload them to an image host one-by-one; I use http://www.imageshack.us because it's user friendly.  

2.  Once you've chosen your picture and hit the button to upload on imageshack, a page will come up with multiple addresses in different formats.  The one you want is the first one labeled "hosting for forums and message boards" or something like that.  The url under it should look something like this - [http://img106.exs.cx/img106/7931/mysuperpicyay.jpg]

3.  Copy and paste that URL into your post here on the boards, and then repeat steps one and two for as many images as you'd like.

Hey Rally, I see by that shot from your desktop you like Franz Ferdinand - good taste in music there.  :D

ha! the abandoned perkins farm! my longtime childhood friend tim perkins this was his grandfathers farm, he says it is Extremely haunted, and has told me stories from time to time, i live maybe 5 miles from this place and have wanted to go in for years, they just burnt down all the barns and only the house remains, be careful when exploring this property, stoningtons finest love to sit halfway behind the house and try and nab speeders. they also keep an eye on the house which is always being visited but never entered by the local teenage of the area. living so clouse i would love to try and get around the property as the area is up for six flags. not sure if itll pass, probably not knowing the area but id like to see it in its current state before they take the house too. anyone interested

went there today, the front/side window is broken out cleanly no glass, and i climbed right in and walked around a bit today, nothing left in the place but a neat house to walk thru, minimal spraypaint, someone obviously hates mystic. i took two quick pics on my camera phone which i will send to email and upload later, as soon as i was climbing out a cop drove by, thought i was spotted but he kept driving so i kept running lol. ill upload the pics tonight.
