Barns!

A perfect little red beauty sitting in a field behind a farmhouse. 
Well, more of a hobby farm house, I think....
In the west end of Elgin County, Ontario.



How Dick and I would love to have a barn just this size!
We would fill it with street rods and parts and Oh! 
We would have us some fun!

 

Still, as with most of the others... the weeds grow in front of the doors





At least they've covered the lower windows with plywood! 
The red looked quite fresh, although the metal roof and white trims could sure use a fresh coat of paint!

All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 without alteration of any kind.

....and to think that once upon a time this barn probably provided an income for a family by sheltering some animals or machinery. DH would just love to have a big ole' barn!!

How sad that barn is not being used. It does seem in good condition too.

Yet another great barn. Do a lot of the barns up there have the concrete half way up like this one? X.

Love the barn. I wish we could afford a barn that size with a basement. Gorgeous photo.
