March 26

This is another barn I found when we were in Kentucky. I always like barns that show a little wear and tear, and this one has that. I love the shape of this barn and the worn paint.

I like the weathered look, too, especially when it's red. I can imagine children playing in that big loft!

Beautiful red barn. It is a great shape and it's wear is wonderful.

Rose said...

Oh, I love that barn....love the shape of it, love that big old steep roof, and love the weathered look of it.

Nancy said...

I love the shape too and it's unusual to find one that the roof and sides are the same color....Great shot...

Debbie said...

WoW, that's one big, old, beautiful barn!!

Kathy said...

Elaine said...

That's a beauty of a barn! Looks like the used the same red paint on the sides and roof.

I love the wear too. It's unusual for the roof to be the same color. Nice shot.

It has been a while since it has seen a coat of paint. So many barns are in a state of disrepair that I wonder if farmers no longer find them useful.

Carletta said...

Love the patina of the paint and its setting beside the railroad track!
Nice capture!

This is a beautiful red barn. We don't see many with red roofs too. Beautiful shot!

It's great that barn is in Kentucky! I love the shape, too, and it's even red! Nice find, Mari!

Linda said...

Nice weathered look...but I never do picture kids playing in the barns. I have a very intense fear of snakes, and it just looks like the kind of place for them to hang out...good thing my boys didn't pay much attention to my fears - they would not have had nearly as much fun! Great find!

Tanya said...

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

I was thinking that very thing... love the shape & the worn paint! I'm also lovin all the doors

Thanks so much for joining, Mari! =)

I agree with you...the shape of this old barn is really neat. Love the rough look to it...aging paint is so appealing to my eye. The sky is such a wonderful compliment to the landscape. It set everything off beautifully. Thanks for you continuing support of my little blog and all of your kind words. genie

Oh, I just love pictures of barns. Love that first one. It has so much character. Barns and Bridges, two of my favorite things to take pictures of!

I agree it looks like it is still usable. The surrounding is neat too.

LoveloveLoVE this charmer! I really like the roof line and the faded red it wears. It is super-sized too.

Great capture of a big, beautiful red barn! It's probably not good for the barns, but I'm drawn to the ones that show a little wear and tear too.

Ruta said...

I love the shape of it and ...wow...it looks huge!

Linnea said...
