Abandoned Memory by Maria Dryfhout

Photographic Prints


Old dilapidated barn with rustic red doors. This old barn will be torn down sometime this month. Someone in the neighborhood complained that it was an “eye sore”…. so sad!

I am wife, mom and grandma and enjoy all three parts of me. What started out as a hobby became a full blown passion for photographing anything. I am involved in 10 microstock sites and 4 online card stores where I sell my images on greeting cards. I also sell my cards in 3 local stores. After many hours and sticking with my dream, I am finally making decent money.

    Excellent capture. Love the lightihng and tones you drew out and that fabulous red door. So sad to hear that it will be torn down, it has so much character….
    This would be a wonderful candidate for the group The Red Barn…

    Eyesore, my foot! This is like fine wine that has aged beautifully. I’m glad you got a shot of it before it’s torn down, Maria. And Kimmie, you gave the old barn a grand way to go out in style!

    Beautiful old barn. It’s a shame buildings like this are torn down. Wouldn’t it be a wonderful to know the history of the barn.
