    Give us the background info. Where were they taken, what the photo means as far as how it relates to your Dad. Was this a hobby for your Dad? Anyways, its fun to see old photos.

    My Dad had photography as a hobby had his own darkroom and developed his oen photos. He got on a windmill and old farm machines desire and we would drive 10-15 miles out of town and look for old farm houses and barns.

    He used a German made camera a Rolleiflex.

    I'm a great nostalgist and lover of old photos. The third one and the two last ones might as well have been Norway (south-eastern part) ... Very nice indeed!

    Thanks for sharing, Mark.

    Wow, thanks. I've never seen Oklahoma, but someday I plan to go there, and thereabouts.

    Unfortunately, with the purple sky, that's emulsion fade.

    Edit: huh? the "red dirt" quote has vanished?

    Nice. Looks like my grandfathers old place.
    When I was a kid the old wagon chassis they used to travel to west Texas in 1904 and some old horse drawn farm equipment were still sitting in a pasture.
