REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Lonely Barn

It has become great fun scouting out barns near where I live. For this week's Barn Charm on Tricia's wonderful blog, I've chosen a barn outside of La Grande, Oregon that I've photographed in previous years, too.  I visited it again a couple of days ago, and it still sits all alone in a field.   It seems kind of strange for a structure like this to be away from any other buildings.  Possibly, there were once other farm buildings nearby.  There is one piece of equipment inside--a tank sprayer-- but no other sign of life or use.

It's a fine old barn that deserves capture in a picture. I like its wide entrance and the airy condition of the far side's roof. It has excellent textured wood too. A fine post.

It looks like it wouldn't take much to restore her beauty.
I LOVE your processing - lovely work!

A great old barn! I really like your processing too!

Beautiful photo! Even though there are many gaps in its roof it still sits straight and strong.

With those big ol holes in the roof & the moss taking over, I'm not surprised it isn't in use, anymore... but she's a beauty, anyway! =)
That's a great texture, too...
Thank you so very much for joining, Evelyn... very much appreciated! =)

Awesome image. That barn is so unique with that overhang part in the front. Great edit!

Trying to post a comment...I keep my third party cookies turned off and for some reason this kind of comment form requires they be turned on...

Anyway, I love this...love the background and would like to see more. Also, love barns like this but always think a home belongs with them.

Great picture. :-)

Thanks for visiting my photo blog. Yes, that is a walking bridge. It's actually part of a two lane road that spans a four lane railroad track.

I did take place in Barn Charm as well. Here is my link;
