Photographer's Note

This is the continuation of my "Farms & Farmland" theme which I recently started.

A few weeks ago I passed by this abandoned farm, which I also had the opportunity to photograph in 2006 (posted as Once A Proud Farm last November). Nothing much seems to have changed since I first was there, except maybe my way of seeing things...

Statistics shows that 75% of the farms ln Norway have been abandoned during the last 50 years, but in the same period the cultivated area has increased by 5%, this in spite of increased use of cultivated land for construction purposes like buildings and infrastructure.

This means agriculture is a lot more efficient today, and the average farm now is four times the size of the 1960 farm.
