There is something so sad but endearing about old structures that has been abandoned. Gives you a moments pause as you wonder what they were like in their time. I first photographed this barn last year (or was it earlier this year?) and forgot about it until the other day when I was yet again making DH drive around looking for abandoned places. We weren’t going to go back to this barn but we got turned around and I saw it and had to go capture some more images. Good things too because while DH waited by the side of the road in the car a couple going for a walk stopped to speak with me. They said the area had been sold and the barn was going to be torn down.
I was saddened by this but very happy that we made that turn that brought me back to it for possibly the last time. I couldn’t get to the other side of it as there were some pretty big machines in the driveway which I think may be what will tear it down. Time marches on…
(Turns out it was earlier this year – March to be exact – when I first came upon this old barn. The first image was taken then; the other two this past weekend.)
I’m so glad you had a chance to get back there before it’s torn down! –Lisa
Kinda makes me sad. I had plans to get more shots too.
Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat™.
Thank you for posting an escape for me Ms. T. Dashfield.
I so agree when it comes to old worn structures. I think that’s why I had so much fun in Jerome. If walls could talk!
I sometimes wish I could have a time machine or a TARDIS 😉 so I could go back in time to see things time lines in reverse.
The fields to the East of our area in Michigan are dotted with old, decaying barns. Some have been replaced by nearby bigger and better structures. Others, though, seem abandoned. How sad!
Great shots, Teri. You’ve captured their disappointment.
Hmmmmm may have to do a road trip to Michigan one day then 🙂
Very cool…I love to see old buildings and often wonder what things were like in their heyday. But as you said…time marches on. Guess we can’t preserve everything. Glad you were able to se this one last time.
Me too…although I’ve noticed some new subdivisions with an old barn smack in the middle that still stands.
