REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Another old barn

This past weekend, I took two short side trips and found 10 barns! So I'm set for more of Tricia's wonderful Barn Charm.  It's so funny to think that I've driven past those great structures so many times over the years. Now their images are safely stored in my digital files.

This barn is only 8 miles from where I live; this past year, the owners contracted with someone to start tearing it down, which made me sad.  My biggest regret was that as many times as I had thought of doing it, I hadn't stopped to take a photograph.   Now it's in skeletal form.

Woodell Lane and Hwy 82

There is a barn near here that is almost like this...only it has stayed the same way all these years.

It is so sad to see them torn down, but hopefully they are finding new life in someone's home. I love the texture of this photo, Evelyn.

There's some great wood in these old barns. I hope someone will make good use of it. Love what you did with this photo!!

Love this photo! Although reduced to skeletal form as you called it, it's still beautiful. Your processing really adds to the vintage quality.

Ya know, when ya think about it (maybe think REALLY HARD, LoL!) why don't people keep these old barns standing on their property, if only for decoration? I've seen much much much worse 'yard art'! The history in these places alone is reason to leave them standing... although, if kids trespassed & got hurt, they could sue... BUT, post NO TRESPASSING signs! That's a solution, right?

I just hate to see them destroyed... it's heart wrenching! Sorry, I'm thinking out loud (type) again...

Anyway, this is a great find & I also think the texture is perfect for the barn... it matches! =)

This capture is fantastic, Evelyn! Such a perfect processing - I LOVE it!!

That barn skeleton must have quite a history! Imagine if it could talk~! Great Barn Charm posting!

I think that's why I started taking photos of the barns in my area -- they won't stand forever. Beautiful but sad photo. :)

Carole said...

Great photo, but indeed sad. I hate to see structures like this torn down.

Great picture! Bummer about the barn.
