Maine's Ramshackled Beauty

There’s just something about the backdrop of autumn against dilapidated barns and other aging things. Perhaps it’s the contrast between weathered wood and vibrant colors. Whatever it is, these photos prove that such beauty is found in all sorts of places.

The roof may need new shingles,
but the rest of this Augusta structure appears rock solid.
One of my favorite photos from early autumn.

Toward the end of the Civil War (1861-1865),
President Abraham Lincoln designated Togus as
the site for the first veterans home in the United States.
Building #36 (above) was the original nurses quarters.

Peeling paint on the door adds a touch of
shabby chic to this brick-and-mortar renovation.
