Barn Charm

This is a barn I have passed near many times and never really notice till a few days ago...

These are not really processed in any way other than to size down for publishing here and I think I hit the sharpen button. I like the color of this weathered wood and wonder why most barns have an overall bray appearance but some has this richer color.

I like that rusty roof...well, I like the whole barn really. Wonder what kind of treasures lie within.

Nancy said...

I didn't really notice barns too much until I started photographing them...Now my eyes are always on the lookout....

I bet this barn could tell some stories...

TexWisGirl said...

lovin' the tattered roof...

Mari said...

This is a charming barn for sure! I like the weathered wood and metal roof!

Beth said...

love the roof. i have a few barns like that around these parts that i find just by chance & keep thinking i need to stop & take a few photos. (:

I could tell the barn is kind of old because of the roof. But I see good wood hanging. ^_^ Great find.

This is an oldie but goodie! I'll bet it was a beauty in its day.

Ginny said...

I'm wondering why so many people let their barns fall into ruin...guess it is poor farmer's who just can't afford the upkeep...I just watched some of "Farm Aid" last night.

Looks like it has had more than one coat of paint -- but the weather won out. Great barn.

Bek said...

Isn't that the truth - I, too, have started seeing things that I never noticed before. That makes the daily commute so much more interesting:)

George said...

This is truly a charming barn. It looks as if it could use some TLC, however.

Lesley said...

This one has quite a hodge podge of new and old wood, which would drive me insane if it were on my property!

Judy said...

Glad you finally noticed it Rose, this is a great barn and I too love the roof on it.

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

I like the color and texture of this barn. Nice shot.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I like the colors of this old charmer!

Kathy said...

It's certainly a massive building. One of the best features of the photo is the picnic table!

Elaine said...

Nice! Isn't it amazing how we can drive past something numerous times and never see it. Looks like it is well hidden back in the trees.

Linda said...

Looks like the rust is about all that is holding this one together! Interesting photo - would love to know the story behind all these old barns!

Tanya said...

some of the most interesting things are right under our noses! nice!

don said...

I like the combination of a general view followed with a close up that shows the decay very well. It's a great rustic looking barn.

Susan said...

Wonderful photos Rose! Poor barn, it's about to fall down.

Deanna said...

Isn't it strange how the day to day evades our notice? Very nice barn photo.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Very good photos of this old barn.

Regards and best wishes

I love the patina of the old wood. Maybe it is richer because it is more shaded by the trees. Anyway it is great. MB

Ellie said...

Lovely old barn but it could do with a lick of paint. :)

Tammy said...

Tricia has us all looking out for barns....isn't it great?! :)

This one's a charmer.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I love the rusty metal roof. I wonder if anyone ever uses the picnic table. :0)
Great shots.

thirdhandart said...

Beautiful textures and rich colors on this weathered barn. So glad that you noticed it. Great captures!

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

The poor thing is a patch work project, but I'm still attracted to it & the rusted roof is icing on the cake!

Thanks for joining, Rose! =)

Madge Bloom said...

A well used place... love that tin roof!

sweetdaysundertheoaks said...

Love this poor old barn and it looks like it is being used for something! Love the rusty red roof and the picnic table :) Good capture Rose!

shannon i olson said...

I think that barn is stunning!

EG Wow said...

The colours are aging well on this barn. I wonder if some types of wood turn grey bit others turn brown over time.

Fantastic old barn, Rose! Love the rusty roof!
