I Like Big Barns and I Cannot Lie

Though you may tire of seeing barns on this blog,


I never tire of photographing them.  All of these beauties are no more than a twenty-minute's drive from my farm.


From the ones that seem to sink behind the wildflowers,


to the ones the perch so perfectly on a hillside, they never bore me. 


Sometimes it is the old tractor sitting in the barn that really catches my eye.  


The old, haggard ones always draw a bit of love from me.

  10. It's like watching part of my past disappear back into Mother Earth!

    A sad sort of beauty...thank you for loving them and photographing them! Most of the barns are gone in the rural part of Virginia where I lived and grew up!

  15. No way: barns are so unusual here, even in the countryside, that you can post how many you wishes without boring me!

  17. My husband knows that my greatest wish is to live in an old converted barn. His greatest wish it to not live in an old converted barn.

  18. I love old barns too. Tobacco barns like the one you have pictured are becoming scarcer.

  19. I love barns too and it seems that at least around here where I live, they are going away faster than they are being built back again. They get old and crumbly and then eventually they fall down. I have some photos of some that I have taken throughout the years and they no longer exist. You are capturing a bit of history there and documenting it. And isn't there something soothing and peaceful about them? They seem to point to a time in our history where things seemed a bit more less hectic, calm, less stressed. But, maybe not. Maybe life was harder then but we just think it might not have been.

  20. I love barns too. I'm a child of farming grandparents from Oklahoma. My parents both eschewed the farm life and moved us to Oregon. I think it was in my genes, though, as when my husband and I found a place to live when we had our young children, it was an acreage, then we moved up to a 5 acre old farm place. My husband has built 2 barns.. and he finally painted this one red at my urging and I adore it!!
