Another shot from summer… have a great weekend, everyone!

I love old barns!
So much character in them!
When I visited old rural areas, I found lots of old Mail Pouch barns and always had to stop to take a photo of them!
They are so interesting, aren’t they?! All with a charm that’s all their own…
Looks just like the barns around here, Sig!…Great shot btw! 🙂
Hope you and Annabelle have a very Merry Christmas! 🙂
Considering all the barns I grew-up around… it’s probably a bit strange I don’t have more photos of… barns!
Thank you so very much, Deb! Wishing you the very best this Christmas as well!!!
I like that movie – O Brother Where Art Thou. I think they would have hidden out in a barn just like this one.
Man, George Clooney looks good even in a ZZ Top Beard and overalls! 🙂
Merry Christmas SIG!
I think so, too! Probably my 2nd favorite Coen Brothers movie… (right after The Big Lebowski, of course)!
Hahaha… that rumor has been going around… but I would have taken your word for it, Ms. C.
A very merry Christmas to you, too! Thank you so much!
What is it with guys and The Big Lebowski? 🙂 Every guy I know wants to be The Dude! 🙂
I don’t get it with the Big Lebowski thing either. . .
So… you ladies are saying you are both fans, too?!
Hahaha… well, you know… the ‘dudes’ abide…
Oh look, it’s Michigan!! Beauty of a shot, SIG! I love the colors, too. It’s so very rustic. Merry Christmas to you!! Happy End of the World (I’ll just say it now, just in case) 🙂
Hahaha… I know, right?! I should probably only label things photograped elsewhere at this point!
Thank you so much, B.F! The very same to you and your family, of course! I’m hoping everyone pulled through okay… I mean… it didn’t seem TOO bad… as far as the end of the world goes and such!
Were there old horses and cows in the barn?
or butcher hooks 😯
*DUN DUN DUN*
I’m not sure about in the barn… although we did pass a KFC at one point (er, um… the chicken, anyway…)
Ah! Yum! Beautiful, Robert! I love the processing, such attractive colours. The lines. The composition. The simplicity of shape combined with the complexity of texture. Jolly good, mate! 😀
Thank yo so very much, S.E…
it was the kind of scene I could’t mess-up too badly even despite myself!
I love this shot, so crisp and clear. Great barn find!
Thanks so much, Patti! There were so many great old barns! But quite a few looked to be set-back a ways on private property and I didn’t want to intrude…
It’s a cool house. There are similar old houses in rural area, Japa. 🙂
I thought so, too! Thank you very much, sir! Sounds fascinating! I hope to see some myself some day!
With your smart phone? That’s a pretty nice shot.
Now if I could just figure out how to make a call! Thank you very much, sir!
Love the tones and nicely composed! I wouldn’t expect otherwise from you good sir!
Many thanks, Mr. B! You are far too kind as alwats, sir!
Wonderful composition. Colour, light & tone are all used to great effect. Did you use some Dapper Dan on the lens ? 😀
Why thank you sir, very, very much!
Hahaha… well, it didn’t look like a one horse town, but just try finding a decent hair-jelly!
The barn is great, the lines from OBWAT are great but your colours and composition in this frame are outstanding, what a perfect blend! Gold and silver!
Thank you so much, Ms. K! You are always so very kind… but scenes with this much character… it would be difficult to mess it up too badly… even for me!
I love old barns almost as much as old trees….great shot! O Brother is one of my favorite films 😀
That’s wonderful to hear Mary! Thank you!
It really is a classic… so many great lines! I love it!
My phone ain’t that smart. It is kind of average…maybe its just a C-Phone. I love old barns.
Just between you and me I’m pretty sure my phone is smarter than its user!
I wonder what is going on inside the barn,
now that is an interesting thought isn’t it? 😉
Just kidding SIG
Great work as always
and do add another one soon 🙂
Happy Weekend SIG 🙂
You know they say what happens in the barn… no wait… maybe that was Vegas?
Well, whatever they say, I thank you for your great kindness, Andro! As always, it’s greatly appreciated, sir!
Why thank you very much! How kind of you to say so!
They don’t have axe weilding murderers living in barns in Michigan do they? I’m kinda waiting for someone to jump out with a chainsaw . Sheez, I gotta stop watching late night movies and criminal minds 😦
I think I might have seen a chicken or two… maybe a cow. Although you never know about them, either… ‘Mad-Cow’ and all…
Old barns are the best place to begin a story 😀
Happy Christmas Eveee!
They have so much character, don’t they?!
Thank you very, very much, Cristina! A very Merry Christmas to you as well!!!
The barn kinda looks the way an old lady kinda feels… hey, Merry Christmas and a sweet new year to you and yours, SIG, and to everyone looking in. Peace. 🙂
Well, it was still standing strong! So that counts for quite a lot!
And thank you! So very much! Wishing you the very best, too! Merry Christmas!!!
I’m in Michigan right now and think I may have paased that cool barn. Happy Chistmas SIG!
AH! Very cool, Peg! I was wondering if anyone would recognize it!!!
Wishing you and your family the Merriest of Christmases as well, Peg! Thank you!
It is so pretty in a stark kind of way. It is funny how wintery it looks. You’d never guess that photo was taken in the middle of the summer!
True! I guess it did feel kind of colder that day… with all the rain and stuff… but definitely not as cool as it looks!
Thank you, sir!
That barn is awesome
I like old barns… it’s funny I didn’t take more photos of them when they were so much closer-by!
