June 4

I was driving on a back road when I saw what looked like a barn, swallowed up in the trees.
Of course, I immediately slowed down to check it out.



This was the view I had as I got close to it.






A little further, and it's obvious that what was once a barn, is no longer!






And here is the view from the front. You can see the bones of a nice structure, but now much of it is a pile of rubble. I wonder what animals may have called it a home and what about the farmer who worked in it? It's sad to see a barn in this condition.
For more barns, visit Tricia at Bluff Area Daily.

Swallowed up by nature and nothing but the bones are left!
At one time someone's life revolved around this old barn.

Oh wow this one's a goner...but it sure makes for nice photos.

There's still beauty in her, and you captured it perfectly.

Wow! What a find! Too bad is falling down...

The same sight down here too. So many of them are falling to pieces. Thanks for getting this one while part of it is still there.

Poor old barn. So say to see them go. I love the first picture though.

Wow! That's about as close to falling down as you can get! It was well hidden in your first photo.

A neat and sad find. I like the angles and colors you captured of this barn in its surroundings.

Tanya said...

Terri Buster said...

Yikes, I would say that one is a whisper of its old self.

A great find, just the same, Mari. Love them old crumbles.

Tricia Hays said...

My goodness, swallowed up, indeed! I doubt there's any saving of barn wood from this one... Yes, it is sad to see them in this condition... such a shame!

Thanks for joining, Mari! =)

It is sad to see the condition of this barn. I think it has something to do with those days being long gone...

Debbie said...

Joanna Jenkins said...

Wow, Mari. Youhave a good eye. I'm not sure I'd have even spotted the barn thought all the trees.

It is sad to see it in such poor shape. I bet is used to be a beauty.

Have a great weekend,

Wow, that's one of the saddest barns I've ever seen. Great shots though. :-)

Oh, my. It's certainly been left to ruin. It looks as though it may have had a concrete foundation.
