Thanks very much for the "thumbs up" re: this "barn" pic and the "sunrise" pic uploaded earlier. It's very humbling when pics from here are liked. I still slip up sometimes and put quotation marks in captions, which might cause a caption to be cut off at them. Here's what was intended to be the complete, long caption of this photo: "The Michaels farm was one of the hundreds of properties enjoined by the U S Government during the 1960s in conjunction with the Tocks Island dam project, which was later prevented as a result of a court decision. What to do, then, will the 70,000 acres acquired? The land was ultimately designated as a "Wilderness Area", whereon some of the buildings remain...but they haven't been inhabited for decades. Mother Nature still "does her thing" there...but her efforts are no longer seen daily by the displaced families. Accessible here in the "comments" section is a 26-picture slideshow, half of which perhaps overzealousy shows a tree on the former Michaels property, blooming as prolificly as any that I ever saw."

About lousyfocus

lousyfocus

SWDM; 60+; 2 grown daughters; 4 indoor cats. Have had only 4 addresses ever - all of which have been within 25 mi. of each other in NE PA, where civilization has become too noticeable. Productivity at this end suffered a setback quite awhile ago, but picture-taking is an attempt to hopefully show that it has at least partially been restored - with some titles and/or captions intending to increase the "fun" of the process. Comments of support have made life immeasurably better. It is hugely attractive that this site provides so many well-done glimpses of the world. My oldest WunderPhotos which understandably weren't anybody's favorites - and thousands of other pics - can no longer be seen by clicking on "Visit My Website" next to this bio. The site (Webshots) has been restructured, resulting in the undoing of many, many hours of effort. "My WunderBlogs" might have provided pleasing viewing...but photos there, too, have been wiped out by the restructuring; and it's unknown if/when the photos will ever be re-uploaded to the blogs. The WunderBlog space is much appreciated and I wish that I could add to it - and upload to WunderPhotos - more often...but realizing that sites can make any change that pleases them has cooled me to the cyber-world.
