While staying in Abilene, Texas but working up north in the small town of Anson, Texas I took a short road trip up to Fort Phantom Hill in the northern outskirts of what is now part of Abilene, Texas before work. Driving the back country roads, I came across an abandoned stone farm house near Hamby, Texas.
Abandoned Stone Farm House Near Hamby, Texas
You can see the house from the main road but you have to take a torn up and seldom used gravel road to get to the house. At the end of the road looks to be an abandoned barn or at least it wasn’t visited that often. As for the house, it sits off the gravel road behind a locked fence with livestock on the property. The house has been abandoned for a long time, probably decades.

About the Image
I shot this image with my Sony NEX-3N and a Sony SEL55210mm 4.5-6.3 OSS Lens during the early afternoon from the fence line. I then edited it in Adobe Lightroom. I then post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, bright the image, and bring out the details in the image. Then removed the dust spots and rain spots. I then used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the image.
