Muse of Barns   5 comments

Old barns are my first love. I always keep running back to them, although it’s getting harder and harder to find new ones in my immediate area. And it’s not like I can just hop over a barbed wire fence to go onto the property to get different views of them. I’ve already had a truck-load of rednecks (no offense to rednecks) chase me down the street because I was perfectly legally taking photos of a barn from the street apparently belonging to them. No shotgun so far, but I’m not going to press the issue.

The first barn below is one I took a couple of years ago, maybe, followed by two that I took earlier this year after a very powerful flat wind came charging through the neighborhood last summer. These are followed by two photos of a rather neglected old barn somewhere south of Blanchard, Iowa, just into Missouri.

There wasn't anything at left of the barn after it was visited by a very powerful flat wind, I believe, last year.

  1. that looks cool 🙂

  2. Very nice series. Wind, rain and snow can destroy a structure on the edge. Thanks for the before and after.

    • Thank you for your comment, Allen. While I love to take photos of old barns, still it’s sad to see the state of repair of these old buildings. It reflects the sad state of affairs of American agriculture—the small family farm is pretty much dead, replaced by big, corporate interests who do not have their end customers in mind, but only their bottom dollar. Keep up your good work. I’ve been enjoying your rodeo shots. Come back any time.
