This dilapidated barn seemed an appropriate subject for Silly Tuesday.

Another fabulous shot! Happy ST :))
I'm doing fine but lately I'm experiencing lack of "creative mind" :( I hope to be back with some fresh new images for my AM3 friends soon! :))

It looks so new and solid but for that part of the if a tornado ran through.

Toni from Eastern Washington, United States

More sad than silly, me thinks. It's hard to imagine that someone would let a relatively modern barn deteriorate like that.

jamesy from christchurch, New Zealand

have to agree with Susan looks like a tornado has hit the roof

Too bad barn in ruins. A good theme for Tuesday but a disgrace to us. It hurts to see a beautiful building destroyed and abandoned! A good point of view and a wonderful high key, master Jack? Many kisses for the "Silly Tuesday"! Adela

What a shame the roof didn't hold up; the barn doesn't look that old.
Nice composition of it!

Beautiful green grass . Great compo .

Don from spokane, United States

Even this modern, metal barn is in serious trouble. Barns seem to be disappearing at a speedy rate. Nice shot of the current state of this one.

Il y a un urgent travail de toiture à faire ! bien vu , belle compo !

Macrobaby from Vancouver, Canada

This barn looks too new to be so run down. I would be watching this one in the next big wind storm. Nice shot.

amy from Nanaimo, BC, Canada

Great shot, Jack!! Me thinks a wind storm for sure, eh?

Ah, there is such beauty in her demise Jack. Fabulous composition with the foreground grass leading us through the detail of the fence towards the old girl. Beautifully captured

The barn so well positioned in the frame, with the roof/sky drawing a well defined space - well done

Such a great shot Jack. There really is nothing more cool than old old barn.

terrefic and great shot

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Seem funny that someone would spend the money on all that metal siding and roofing and then let it blow away. That is silly! Cool shot.

Dilapidated by wind ?
Excellent, love light.

Abandon .... Triste !... Joli cliché

16 Feb 2010 10:53pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Nicely composed with it off center and and the barbed wire gives nice depth. That's quite a large barn as well. If that's dilapidated, then I have a real winner for next Tuesday's entry; about 75% of the framing is exposed. :-) I like Steve Rice's reasoning above.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Great shot, and i agree, more sad than silly......clarity is awesome....wonder if they'd had a storm come thru recently, that pulled it apart???

17 Feb 2010 12:25am

@Susan: I don't have any idea. It obviously is not that old.

Charles Dastodd from Chicago, United States

Another superb capture. I really like the composition

17 Feb 2010 12:50am

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

I love this barn! Yours was the first blog I saw before joining Aminus. It's what made me decide to join. Your pictures are beautiful!

17 Feb 2010 12:53am

@Bettina: Thank you so much; you are very kind.

Ajay from Pune, India

That looks quite huge... I don't know how this can be maintained. Needs lots of work.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

Shae to see such a grand barn falling apart like that , but super shot of it

17 Feb 2010 1:34am

MontereyJohn from Salinas, California, United States

What on earth happened here? The siding looks newer, but the barn is a wreck. Unusual image to say the least!

17 Feb 2010 1:58am

MK from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The sharpness of the image made it work. Interesting subject

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

Great grunge! You know it might be good in sepia too given its state of decay. Just.. kinda nudging it over the edge of disrepair. :)

17 Feb 2010 2:25am

@Self-Indulgence: Agreed.

keith from killarney, Ireland
