Buford's Broken Dream
|Photos by Ben Prepelka
The sounds of this Buford farmland have quieted, except for the occasional passerby or buzz of the grasshopper moving from one stalk to the next. One may never understand these abandoned dreams, but it does nothing to stop the wonder and speculation. This sight, repeated throughout the Great Plains, requires a second look.
Nostalgic feelings hang in the air surrounding an abandoned property. Questions abound. What's left inside? Does the family still live about, or long since moved away? Lost ambition? Perhaps too many years of drought. Farm living may have been too tough on a marriage.
