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.

    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.

      It hurt my feelings to know it’s days are numbered. I’ve photographed it in every season but summer.

        It’s like losing an old friend, none of us like too much change.

        Change sometimes is good to prevent stagnation but other times….what you said.

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

      Very very true! The golden hour barn I did has big back hoes on it now. They seem to be taking the trees around it first and then working their way on to the buildings.

    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.

      Some of their days are numbered so for awhile this is my thing to find and capture as many of them as I can.

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

      I will miss this one when it goes. Hopefully they will leave it alone for a little longer.
