Still Standing


I guess a good strong wind came along and blew the roof tin off! 
sharing with the barn collective today,
my daughter captured this one

  1. Picturesque as they often are, I am always a bit sad to see the gentle decay of a barn.

  2. It does look fragile. A good wind could bring it down. What wonderful things could be made from all that lovely old wood!

  3. I just love photos of old barns. I think they all have stories to tell that I would love to read.
    Blessings,

  4. I am sure in its top condition it was a well used, and well loved barn, a haven from cold winters and cooler place to be in summer heat.

  7. Mine has fallen. I'd love to have the wood from it, but it's too far away to be feasible. Breaks my heart. I have many happy memories from that barn.

  9. This old sweetie looks to be on its last legs. I enjoy its rustic charm, but one day it will collapse. Thanks for sharing and please stop back again.

  13. Bet that old barn could tell some great stories about what went on inside of it probably for years and years.... Great picture, Terri.

    Hugs,

  15. Those old barns have a majesty and a dignity all their own and it is very sad to see them falling into disrepair.

  16. If that barn could tell a story? Looks like a good place to find a roosting or nesting Barn Owl though.

  19. It is a great capture. I could be in Iowa with the style of the weathered barn, abandoned living int thick grasses.

  20. Aww, that is insult to injury. Barns like that bring out the "I want to make it all better" side of me.

  21. It is still standing refusing to give in to natures ravages, but it is definitely listing to the left. Hope someone comes to its rescue. genie

  22. It's kind of sad to see this barn as it ages. Time takes its toll.

  23. I love this photo! I, too, love to photograph old barns, old houses, old fences and gates, etc. I was so moved by your precious comment on my blog. I have stood where you now stand before losing my own dear parents, and my heart surely goes out to you. If you ever need to talk or share your heart with a compassionate, understanding ear, I am here for you. It was so nice to meet you! I will be following you now.

  24. Wonderful photo (somebody takes after her mother -- great eye!). Abandoned or decrepit barns always call to me -- I always want to know the story -- this building was so important to a family once.

    All the best Jan

  27. I would be afraid to enter or even stand next to it-- not even sure which way it would fall! Very nice textures and composition!
