Barn Charm Tuesday

Another week has rolled around...a busy one!  I still have some barns left from my last barn hunt, but this week's barns are all in color!  Sometimes I really like the B&W, but I guess I prefer color.

Nature is reclaiming her space!

Yes, there really was a barn in there!

A collection of derelicts...a family affair?
That last one sort of looks like a series...from bad to worse, then to terrible!  Notice the nice white structure to the left?  Looks like they have given up on these wooden ones and gone to metal!



As usual, since this is Tuesday, I am linking to Barn Charm.  Thanks, Tricia, for continuing to host this!

Tanya said...

nice set....i wonder what the story is with the last one?

Dianna said...

Even when they're falling down, they still catch our eye, don't they?
I'm going to have to go on a barn hunt soon.... my supply is running low!

Awww...its a shame they haven't restored these old structures. Guess it's cheaper to replace with metal! sigh!!!!

TexWisGirl said...

Beautiful photos, Linda! I hate to see these old barns being neglected, but they make for some wonderful shots and there is just something about an old barn that's special.

That first one is certainly low to the ground but what a great old tin roof it has!
The last is definitely a progression - a story all it's own. I don't like the metal ones at all - no character.

When we recently visited my daughter I thought about you but Dan was in the hospital but next time I'm down I'll let you know. Same when you come through WV. I'd love to meet you too.

The 1st one is overgrown bad enough, but you can hardly see the 2nd one at all... I'd love to explore inside, if it wasn't for the ticks, chiggers & snakes! oh my! LoL!

The barns in the last pic look really old... like at least the late 1800's old! TONS of character & charm!!!
I wish they could all be preserved, somehow! I just don't like the metal ones... no character & no charm!

Thanks a million for joining & sharing these beauties! =)

that's interesting how that foliage is taking over. Out here in the west old barns just dry out and fall down :D

I guess for me the worse condition they are in the better. Great photos.

Great series on the barns, Linda. The last one is my favorite.

Mari said...

I love that last shot! Those barns are still lovely, even when falling down.

These are great looking shots of barn.

Lovely captures, Linda.

Rita said...

I do not believe that those buildings in the last photo were meant to be used as barns originally. They remind me of some of the old slave quarters and sharecropper houses I have seen throughout the south.

Regardless, it is a shame to see them left to collapse.
