The Olde Barn

I happened upon a folder yesterday looking for a particular picture but soon got sidetracked by the first couple of photos below that I had ignored previously; I never did get around to doing what I had originally intended to do. The others I had processed earlier, and I probably also posted some of them previously.

While the house on the property is nothing much to look at, most of the outbuildings is somewhat photographic: the garage, the red barn, the planer mill, and the old barn (the one in this series). These are all of the old, unpainted barn.

These photos are all from out August visit and have been processed with different styles, particularly the first and seventh of the series, which I did as sort of an old, distressed b&w. My faves are probably the second and fourth photos.









These are some other old barn photos that were lying about. There are more, but these were at hand, and I thought that I might as well include them.

these are awesome, ac! and you could link in to good fences on thursday with them, too! :)

Oh, that second one! Definitely. So pretty. I could have that hanging on my wall no problem!

Ginnie said...

I agree completely with Mara ... the 2nd one is awesome. Make an enlargement and frame it, AC. It actually looks more like a painting than a photo...lovely.

My favs are the ones you favor, but the others are pretty stunning. Really convey the various moods!

Wonderful building.. so photogenic. Like you, I'm smitten with the two sunset photos.

Pauline said...

These are wonderful. I love the simplicity of the second to last.

the colours in the second photo made me feel both happy and calm---I guess that would be calmly happy or happily calm---either way, thanks.

I enjoyed them all. There's something timeless about a barn--they always drew my eye in our travels. Simple, ornate, square, rectangular or round, red, white, black or weathered gray, a barn is a great subject for photography.

I like them all. Reminds me of my grandparents farm in some ways. You have a great talent with a camera. Keep up the good work.

Stunning pictures, the barn is really impressive. Gorgeous red skies, when the sky is red in the evening, in Italy we say that the weather is going to be fine "Rosso di sera, bel tempo si spera" :)

The fourth photo down of that red barn is stunningly beautiful in its simplicity, AC. Well done on the others too, but I had to pick one favorite of mine.

Love them all--but four...hits it out of the park.

That barn's face in the fourth one is a little scary! Great photos, as ever...
