Wordless Wednesday ~ I Couldn't Resist This Old Barn

Barn Photo by Pat Starnes

If you've followed my blog for very long, you know I love to capture images like the one above. While viewing property this afternoon, I spotted this dilapidated old barn behind a row of new construction homes, and couldn't resist snapping this picture. And how about that tree? I wonder how old it is.

It would be interesting to know the age and history of both the tree and barn.

Hi Pat... this is a beauty of a picture... I don't have those photographic skills to capture something this lovely, unfortunately.

As a sidewalks, curbs, gutters, kinda gal, I always enjoy photo scenes that take me away to more simple and rural scenes.  That picture certainly does that.

Good afternoon Pat - hopefully the builder will construct the home while keeping the tree.

Grant Schneider - Oh, I sure hope so!!! I never thought about the tree being in jeopardy. I've heard that the old barn will remain and I hope they both stay, although some people may consider the barn an eyesore, I love it!

I love old seemingly abandoned buildings. My Grandfather has several of these on his property when I was growing up.

Hello Pat,  Growing up in Pennsylvania, I always like the big painted barns and even ones that would hold lots of hays inthe loft.

I agree with William Feela , I bet that barn was the pride of the local Ag community Pat Starnes, Brandon, MS

As more and more farms are being developed in our area, I am seeing the old barns go one by one.

Will Hamm - Although I didn't grow up near farms, I have a strong appreciation for them. I never got to swing into a pile of hay, though, from the second floor. :(

Pat, I too have to turn the car around if I saw this barn, or any old dilapidated property.
