May 16

I like the simple lines of this barn, along with the faded red paint and the foundation.
I'm linked with Tricia at Bluff Area Daily for Barn Charm.

I think you're right...the foundation is really cool!

A wonderful old stone foundation and a soft patina of red paint - lovely capture!

Kathy said...

This is such a soft and glowing picture.

It has a soft patina to it that unites it with its surroundings. I too like the foundation---speaks of the generation who used stone well to make structures last for generations.
Lovely photo.

Nice variety of texture between the stone and the wood.

I can just imagine the hustle and bustle that has gone on around that barn. : )

You find the most unique barns! I love the faded red pain on this one.

This is an interesting barn. It's hard to be sure, but the barn looks older than the foundation.

Red on one side. White on one side. I am wondering if the back side is blue? There are a lot of different colors going on there.

I am amazed that the foundation looks so good.

I really like this one.

I thought about you a lot as we were trying through upper WI and MN and really took note of all the different barns. Thought I should
take a picture but the car was going way too fast.

Judy said...

I've been seeing a lot of foundations like this lately. Nice barn find.

Carole said...

Another barn with a story....Great shot.

I always wonder about the history of barns that catch my eye. This one is no different. All it needs now is a quilt square painted on it, so it can be part of the barn quilt tours. I love going on those.

It's a huge barn and looks like it still in used. Great shot!!

OOPS...I am so sorry I missed your barn earlier. Thought I had gotten all of them. This one has a lot of personality. To me it looks like there is a little shelf running from side to side across the front but guess is it a water pipe or maybe just an optical illusion on my part. Sorry to be so late commenting. Genie
