The Old Barn

There is an old barn in a small stand of trees, beside a highway and only a couple minutes from my house. The highway is busy and there is not really a good place to stop. I have been admiring this barn, as I speed by, for years!

A couple weeks ago with the threat of snow coming and the fall colours still looking nice, I decided to ask permission to shoot the barn. The owner was very nice and did not mind at all. I took images from almost every side except the back of the barn. The weeds and grass were very tall and wet and I think the 3 sides I did photograph were fantastic. It started to rain as I was leaving so I am glad I stopped by when I did.

  2. With that roof line, it won't be long. Looks like tire chains on the fence.

  16. There is something really grand about an old barn, and to see one fall into disrepair and ultimately collapse is very sad.
