March 18



I found this old barn when we were in Kentucky. I love the peak at the top and I wonder what it looked like in it's prime.

To see more barns from around the world, stop over at Bluff Area Daily.

Betsy said...

I bet it was lovely. Maybe it never had paint..there doesn't seem to be any trace or chip or a color! I agree that the roof line is wonderful!

TexWisGirl said...

i like that extra roof at the top, too! pretty!

Don’t you know this old barn has lots of stories to tell? I love that you were able to document it before it falls to the ground. I think bloodroot is on some sort of endangered listing because you are not supposed to dig it. In the old day the Native Americans used the red dye in the roots to paint their faces. That is the really neat part of them. They are just beautiful when you find them as I did today all along a creek. genie

I like this a lot - wish we did know what it looked like originally.

Glenda said...

It must have been beautiful, and I'm sure someone was very proud of it. Great pic!

Totally abandoned barn. But I like to salvage some of the wall for sure there are some good ones left ^_^

Looks like the trees or weeds are growing out of it.

It seems to have had a lot of windows.

It's really a weathered barn. I like the extra peak on the top too.

Carletta said...

The peak at the top is very unique. I too wonder what it looked like. Can't tell if this is the front or the back. I guess I'm looking for a big barn door somewhere. :)
Great find!

Great shot, Mari! Even cooler because you were in my home state! :-)

Very nice photo.

Regards and best wishes

Beth said...

Very cool. I like all those windows (openings now). Kentucky, huh? Great state--I was born in Lexington--beautiful countryside.

The lines remind me of the some of the barns in this area. What a lot of light must have come through those windows.

Tanya said...

i like that rooftop and the windows very much!

Ruta said...

I bet it was lovely in its day! Sure looks interesting now...

Nancy said...

You and I were on the same wave length this week with our old barns with boards missing....

Joanna Jenkins said...

That looks like a "ghost stories" kind of barn :-)

Judy said...

I too would love to see this back in the day.

Elaine said...

I love this shot! It looks like the barn is being slowly reclaimed by the vegetation all around.

Kathy said...

It looks like it's coming apart sowly plank by plank but it still holds its original charm.

Great capture! Love the peak at the top and the missing planks (or windows) are very interesting. Also, the weathered wood on this barn is beautiful.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Oh yeah, that cool peak is a really neat eye catching addition, too bad the poor thing is so neglected... but, she's still very beautiful!

Thanks for joining =)

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

She still has lots of charm Mari! I'd love to see them all when they were in their prime. I like the extra peak at the top too and the little add on on the side. Mari! Thank you so much for the Name/URL choice for comments!!

Great find, Mari. Love the missing boards.

Linnea said...

That's a nice one. I'd love to go inside of it and have a look around. Very lovely composition. Too bad you can't go back and capture it in different seasons.

Susan said...

Awesome barn! Beautiful photo!
