This old barn has seen better days from when it used to be an important structure on the farm. It now stands abandoned in our township decaying day by day and will mostly be razed at some point in time. Kindly Enjoy!!!! My entry for the current contest. p.s. notice the wood slate on the upper section of the barn catching the breeze.

This barn has not been touched by a paint brush in a long time, if ever Laura. Marvelous entry for the contest.
It amazes me how they withstand the ravages of time for so long.

Great example of something that has stood and weathered with time. Makes one wonder how they can stand that long and I guess some of them don't. Good entry.

These old barns always make a great subject matter when it comes to deterioration and texture...you've got a good one here and beautifully captured in terms of detail and shadows...super entry...good luck, Laura.

I wonder why you not took a shot of the abondoned "complete" barn, Laura.
I M H opinion it looks better on the photo with the complete roof on the top.
Anyway wish you good luck in the current contest !

Your capture is superb, and you surely chose an excellent scene to photograph. The details and light allow us to see the weathered barn, with a sense of almost being there. Super shot, perfect for the contest.

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB

It is sad to see so many of these classic structures start to decay. Yet that is the natural selection of things, which isn't bad, just the way it is. I am sure it has served its purpose for many years before reaching this state.
