The Barn Collective

This summer we took several trips to some of the nearby islands.  The islands are mostly homes now and the farms are being abandoned or sold to home builders.
 This is the end of an old barn, a woodshed that seems to still be in use
 And nearby an old water tower.
 And a small cabin - with clean curtains,so perhaps someone uses this for a summer retreat.  There is a hose coiled on the left end of the house.  Or maybe it is a play house - perfect for summer imaginations.
 A tractor lives in the shed on the end of the barn
 An old, old chicken house - slowly melting back into the land
 Some of the back wall is missing and weeds and grasses are taking over  
 A newish tin roof - and perhaps this barn is used for storage
It definitely is not a working barn.

That water tower is really neat. I've never seen one like that.

Great photos of unpainted barns...and that water tower is awesome!

Old barns and building, even in the worst condition, are one of our favorite finds when we are out driving.
Their age and patina are amazing.

Old, worn and picturesque. Thanks so much for sharing this week and I hope that you return again. Tom

Water towers! Now there's something that's disappearing, too!
Some nice finds here!
