An Assortment of Barns


 An old red barn, surrounded by a neighborhood now, it leans and moans in the wind, a few sheep feeding around it.  How long will it stand?
 A farm, a white fence, and seasonal ponds in the fields.  Often there are a lot of mallards around before the water subsides.  February and March have been the wettest months ever in NW WA .
 This may be the shabbiest looking barn I've ever photographed - it has tales stored up of years gone by.
 Modern, metal and bright white - ready for just about anything.
 Some barns see a new life after farming has ceased.
And some barns disappear completely and houses spring up like a new crop on the hillsides, with pretty white fences

...Thanks JoAnn, for sharing this wonderful collection. Number 2 is my favorite this week. Your arched roof barns are interesting to me, we have very few of them in this area. I hope to see you back again.

Hi dear JoAnn - such lovely scenic barns - still looks chilly your way though. The 'now a winery' barn is awesome - may have to pop into that one and sip a glass of warming red!!!!!

Happy Easter to you and your family - hope it's a sunny day.
Hugs - Mary

I love barn #5. I don't see that design much in Kentucky. Have a great week!

That's a nice assortment of new and old barns...love the one made into a winery...have you visited it? Was the wine worth the trip?
Have a wonderful week, JoAnn!

Oh, my, I love all of these...that last one is a real beauty....the one before the houses.

The farm plots around my home are melting away fast. Hardly large enough to accommodate even a small barn, they are being filled with huge apartment buildings.

You found some great old barns! I love the shape of the 3rd and 5th shots. I always wonder if there is an significance to it.
