A Dying Breed

I have loved shooting this old barn for years and years now (here’s a blast from the past) but I fear the end may really be near for it.  It is much more decayed than when I first found it; a couple of the adjoining sheds have been dismantled or just lie there in a collapsed rubble.  Then there is that new subdivision being built in the field next to it which may or may not expand onto where this barn resides.  This is why I was traipsing in weeds over my knees and fending off pesky vultures – to chronicle this beautiful barn before it is no more.

More images of it coming next week.

  1. I love the yellow of the vegetation in front. It adds a special detail to this image. Cheers.

    I agree with Christopher about the yellow flowers, they seem to add dimension and a time-line to the barn. A shame to see it go.

  3. You just never know when it is going to be your last chance to shoot an old friend…

  4. Nice images, I’ve shot a lot of old barn over the last few years. On one hand, I feel like I over did it – so many barns. On the other, I don’t think there will be many more chances left to capture these beautiful old rustic structures.

    The vultures may not be a good omen for this barn. Great photo well worth fording the weeds and vultures to get.
