Back on February 4, this year, I posted a weekly challenge, “Ready to Collapse.” You might remember it as follows:

Early in July I was again traveling down this same road and noticed the same old barn but in a different state. I came back on July 9 and took the following photograph:

You’ll notice the difference in color. The original was taken in the early dawn just at the sweet spot of morning when the colors appear much richer in the red department. Also, it’s due to the fact that what you see here is the roof, or what’s left of it.
I hate to see old things disappear, but sometimes, due to lack of care and upkeep, they, like human beings, just run out of gas. This poor old barn undoubtedly had much better days, but in the end, like all of life left to its own, has gone on to a better place and will soon, likely, be removed, analogous to being buried.
So far (6/9/2013), the roof remains the same.
