Digging for barns…


I have been pretty busy the last few days.   Well, really ever since we came home from our vacation in St. John, I’ve been busy with stuff.  You know the way life gets.  So I haven’t had the opportunity to get out and shoot the way I would like to.  But I wanted to link up with Barn Charm today so I went digging.

These pics are from a ride I took out in the country here in Massachusetts about a month ago.  I have them so I might as well use them.  And I have high hopes that I will be out gathering new digital matter for next week so I don’t have to do any digging.



Of course, he's not a barn, but he sure is handsome.

these are 2 real charmers, the second one is my favorite. i only share 1 barn at a time, so i never run out.

he is so handsome, i love his coloring and those floppy, bunny like ears!!

Great barn photos. And of course, Mr. Goat is interesting looking too. I wonder what kind he is? I went digging for some great barns in my files for future posts too. Have a good week.

I like the patina of the paint on the first one. The cows and fairly new looking grain silo suggest a working farm. I guess plastic was cheaper than new windows. :)
The second shot looks like someone may have begun to remodel it for a home. I'd like to think so.

Love both of those barns, but I'm really liking the second one! And the goat is awesome! Great shots, Barb!

That 2nd one is interesting..wonder if someone really was going to turn it into a home? Or just practicing their siding skills?? Love the goat...he is very handsome!

Tanya said...

So love seeing livestock alongside these old barns. Give me hope that small U.S. farms are still thriving, although in truth, the numbers decline every year.

Love the billy goat!

Judy said...

Handsome, for sure! heheheee

Well, your digging produced some fine shots. That first barn is really special because you can see by all the animals that it is a working barn. I am wondering what the tiny building between the silo and the big are is...and the plastic over the windows...that is unique. The second one looks like it way be on its way out. Like the ladder in the front. It really pulls in the eye. Then there is Mr. Goat with the goatee. He is a real specimen. What a fine series. genie

I loved all three of these pictures. The first I found interesting because of the plastic covering the windows. The second I loved due to the colors. And the third, well, who doesn't love an old billy goat occasionally!

Nancy said...

Great shots. Love the billy goat. He's quite a handsome lad.

Mari said...

I love all three shots! The plastic covered windows are interesting, I love the look of the second one, an who wouldn't love that goat!

Elaine said...

I like both barns, but gotta say I like the photo of the goat best. He looks like he might be a watch goat, just daring you to come a little closer.
