Old countryside landscapes

Montérégie (Quebec), Canada

Regions are getting empty. Everybody knows, everybody says so. Farms are becoming larger and they become (over) specialized. At the last century they were self-sufficient and beyond culture, they had cows, pigs, chickens and more. Today, this is no longer the case. For example, there are fewer and fewer dairy farmers and those who still have cows, now have more animals who remain in the cowshed to maximize the  production.

Thus, old barns accumulate. And although they are used for the storage of farm machinery, they are often abandoned. Condemned to an endless agony, many of them crumble under the weight of time.
