a hay filled barn


This barn has seen much better days and I think the only thing holding it up
is the bales of hay inside!



I love the old doors just hanging open.  The old boards are so weathered.


I wonder how many critters live in there?  I don't think I'd want to find out.


I like the contrast of the white church and the gray barn against the blue sky don't you?

I am joining Mary for



And Tricia for


Come along and join the party.

Blessings,

Pamela

  4. Old barns are so attractive, no matter how decrepit. They stand as mute testimony to dreams and plans of the past. Love the blue sky, white church and old barn.

  8. These are beautiful pictures. There is nothing like an old barn with all the stories it could tell except maybe for the Old Church! Imaging the tales it could tell! Have a wonderful week. Cathy

  10. Hi Pamela
    What is it that attracts us to weathered barn board? Perhaps the silvery colour, texture and stories it could tell?
    I like the contrast of the church, barn and sky too, kind of peaceful looking.

    Lovely photos...
    The old barn is just beautiful, love that weathered look, very similar to driftwood.
    Pretty little Church too!

  18. I'd love to have some of those barn boards if that ever finally fell down! So interesting someone thought to prop it up...and yet it's so obviously uncared for. Thanks for visiting my blog...I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Enjoy!

  19. Yes the two structures are a beautiful contrast. Wonderful photos, as always!

  20. Love the treatment you've given the first shot. The sepia like tones fit the little leaning barn in its state of disrepair.
    I don't even want to know the number or kind of critter that might be hanging out in there. :)
    One could probably make quite a few analogies between that old barn and the nearby church.
    Lovely post!
    Thanks for your visit.

  25. Pamela,

  27. YaY! Thank you so much for joining, I was hoping you would!!! =)

  28. Pamela, old barns are (of course) among my most favorite things (after rocks) and this is a beauty. It is amazing how long these structures will stand even after they begin to lean. It is true that a barn full of hay will withstand a windstorm much better than an empty one.

    Lovely, lovely photos...that blue sky and white church are gorgeous.

  29. The hay may be holding it up, but I love seeing a weathered old barn that's still a working barn!

  32. Hi Pamela~ Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your barn photos ... especially the one with the church next to it. I'm not much of a photographer but trying to learn. I've got a Canon PowerShot. Taking photos just doesn't come naturally to me but I'm trying.

    You are gifted and that subject is right up my alley! Reminds me of Robert Bateman's art.

  37. Love the shot of the old building and the beautiful white church!! I see that you found Barn Charm to link it to. Have a great week end!

  38. Kind of a 'Little House on the Prairie' shot.

    The round bales look a little worse for wear as well. Great barn shot. What a lovely white church. Reminds me of the one I was married in, before it was built on to, more than once.
