The Barn



The roof on this eastern Connecticut barn caved in during the October Surprise snow storm of 2011.

Always wanted a big barn attached. Glad I never got one, because of this photo.

It's looking a little shabby still today.

it's like a kind of jazz.

This is a rustic scene for a subject for photography, but the barn siding looks like it is ready to be reused for furniture, flooring, or some other use.

Looks like many I've seen in Maine.

Same deal in my area all the time.

I really like these kinds of photos. But I think that barn didn't have long to live even before the storm! :)

The viewer can't really tell if this was an old building ready to fall or new construction that met disaster. There is a puzzle here for a careful viewer.

Nice b&w image.

Nice image. I hate to see old buildings like this go down, but they reach a point of no return, like a lot of old farms. And people. Ouch.

Hope it can be repaired

oh no, poor thing!

gardenbug said...

This saddens me deeply. Our barn is very old and is a sponge for repairs. Makes we weep to see the local barns vanish...

That must have been quite a storm Jack, hopefully there won't be any more like this this year!

Perfect in B&W!
