REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

An old barn on a back road near Lostine

I almost forgot...Barn Charm! (Our sons were here for almost all of last week.)   Tricia has the most wonderful feature each Monday on her beautiful blog; her own barn photos are special!

I've chosen one of the discoveries I made on a wintry side trip a few weeks ago.  This barn is probably getting some use, but it's not being well-maintained, unfortunately.    I LOVE the cupolas, which are fairly rare in this part of the country.

Oh, sad to see it going downhill. It has SO much beauty and character tho!

LOVE those cupolas, they almost look like bell towers. Beautiful barn!

It's a beautiful barn. Too bad it's not getting the TLC it needs.

Most barns look to me like they were not built to last. I really like your second picture, with just the cupolas.

Beautiful! I love the way you aged the photo.

That shot could be a beautiful post card :-)

I enjoy the texturing you have done to your photos. Reminds me of old frames of an 8mm movie.
This past weekend I made an unexpected sidetrip and saw the most wonderful cupolas. Sadly I did not have a camera along and it was getting dark. I hope I remember the route I took and can get back that way.

This really is a beautiful looking barn...I sure hate to see it being neglected. The cupolas are beautiful!

I still has lots of charm and I love any barn with cupolas! Great shots!

That texture looks like an old film reel & it fits the barn PERFECTLY! =) It's gorgeous! I sure wish the owner would give it some TLC... I hate to see such beauties be destroyed!!!
Great find, Evelyn... it's a true beauty & thanks so much for that introduction... *I'm blushing!* LoL! =)

I almost missed these, Evelyn, and what a pity that would have been! Wonderful photos and fantastic processing!

Like this one too. I like the front part that you can see immediately the inside. Great shot!
