Old Barns On A Rainy Day



The past few days have brought pouring rain to our very dry region.   I was feeling house bound so grabbed my camera and went for a drive looking for my favorite old barns. I don't know why, but old buildings just draw me in.
We are so fortunate to live where we do, surrounded by farmland.

 

This vintage barn comes complete with this trio of vintage cars.


This barn was freshly painted this dull green....any other shade would have taken away its
full beauty.



This beauty is showing off its new metal roof.  It retains its original bones and weathered wood.


This farm had a brand new metal barn unworthy of photo preservation, but did have these fun out buildings.  Here is a Café complete with old milk cans, water pump, vintage benches and even a phone booth.


            It's partner is a trading post with vintage gas pumps and more milk cans and a vintage sign.


This building has 'weathered' many years of use.  It looks to house broken down machinery presently, but I imagine generations of animals calling this place home complete with a hay loft filled from surrounding wheat fields.


                                                              Oh the memories I could tell.....




I love the red and white of these last two barns.  The windows are wonderful.

 

                                                               These two were just too sweet.

I too love old barns.

When I was little, we lived at the edge of the family orange groves and chicken ranch. I can still remember the old barns on our property as well as all of my relatives who had homes scattered around the property.

For some reasons "Old Barns" touch my heart too! Love the old rustic ones.

I loved these old barns. I am a passionate photographer of abandoned farmhouses. We have a good number of them in our rural county; they are sad, but they tell me wonderful stories...

I want an old barn! In my next life, on that 11 acre organic farm I keep threatening about, I'll have a beautiful old barn. I just know it. Lovely photos Catie. :D

I love old barns and wish we had more of them close by. Thanks so much for sharing and for visiting.

ha-ha! looks like Laurie had sticky fingers. :)

I love old buildings of any sort. Such a shame when they are left to decay.

Have a wonderful day.
