  1. Farmers were the strong force of America before the industrialization era. Now is still important but always overshadowed buy modernism and Industry. The old barns and old tools and utensils have become Americana.
    Nice picture, using a smaller lens you’d get better results. 🙂

  2. You would love Southern Delaware with its endless farmland and farms. Then there is Amish country that is only a few miles up the road. While these structures are symbols of the present and past agrarian life, I wish that more were preserved. So it nice that you are documenting them, Sally

  3. The strength of these old barns is amazing. I can see the loft stacked to the underside of the rafters with hay now. I suspect one day, in years past, this was a lively part of the farm. It looks as though it may still be in use. Wonderful share. Wonderful photo.

  4. love it! Great contrast between the brown and the faded white paint. And I found this very American. I have never been to America, but to me it looks like this type of barns can only be found there.

  5. The barns in the states are always so amazing. It is like people put as much attention to them as their homes. Here, where I am, the barns are called sheds, and they are just as uninspiring. Love the image.

    • Ah, to have you back in my life again. I found a small abandoned farm home from the 1930’s or 40’s and shot all of it, inside included. I’ll post them this week.

      • …and I’ll find the time to give them the attention they deserve.

        Make you Cajun food? You do know there are some women who would take offense to such demanding words. I, fortunately, lack neither the confidence nor intelligence to be one of them.

      • I didn’t figure you to be one of them. And its a good thing I am hardly serious. To any and all who might take offense at such jolly, let me cook for you.
