I found this old barn just around the corner from where I used to live, and just a few miles further from where I live now. This is a very common scene these days, poor old, run-down, partially flattened, crooked, caved in or otherwise dilapidated barns. Some of us perhaps don’t need to even go very far to see one or two. Most of us, perhaps, look at them and think nostalgically back to days when beautiful barns stood proudly in a field of carefully tilled soil, like a symbol of good, hard work, provision, care, and extended family. Others drive by these collapsed structures and perhaps think to themselves “For heaven’s sakes, that thing is an eyesore! Why don’t they just knock it down and build something new and better, something that will hold all their stuff, or at least make the yard look better?” Where the former observer might feel a sense of sadness, the latter is more disgusted. I personally, love these old barns, I am always on the look out for just one more old barn! This was done in HDR – Orton effect applied.
