A Red Barn for Barn Charm


We passed this red barn on the way to the cemetery over
the Memorial weekend.  I've driven by this barn many times
 and this was the first time I've stopped for a quick shot.  Living 
in a mostly rural area with many barns, I think I take barns
for granted and pass many by.  I'm glad I finally got 
this one, it's been well taken care of.

Thank you for the nice birthday wishes for
my daughter.  She had a wonderful and fun birthday,
and I'll be posting about a special surprise she got
in a day or two.  It was a lot of fun!  We had a 
wonderful weekend and hope you did, too!

Until next time...

  1. Nice to see this one IS well taken care of! It looks very much like the traditional type of barn I see in my head when I think of the word.

  2. It is a pretty barn...much better than a lot we see these days! This is the kind I remember from my childhood (which is long gone, like most of the barns). Have a great day!

  7. Such a pretty barn...love the slanted roof! I tend to take barns for granted also, living in an agriculture area, barns are a dime a dozen!

  12. I'm with you about taking barns around me for granted. Our neighbor up the road has one of the nicest old barns around, but I've yet to take a picture of it. That barn is beautiful!

    Hope you had a great memorial day!

  13. We do take things for granted. Or, our tastes change with time.

  14. It really does look to be well maintained... lots of red barns & green foliage this week... very nice to see, because the green seems to be fading around here... we need some rain!

    Thanks a million for joining =)

  17. Someday, I'm just going to take my camera and go for a long drive finding the barns I always say that I want to take a picture of. There are so many! Sometimes, it's a matter of safety so I'll have to be careful.

  20. There's something about a red barn trimmed in white---always an eye-catcher. . .

  23. It's a really nice barn and I'm glad you got this picture. I've done the same with barns around me - gone past without noticing them for years, but doing barn charm makes me take notice!

    Can't wait to hear about the surprise...

    Hugs,

  27. I have learned that a good photographer can make something extraordinary out of something simple. I think you are on to something with this barn. Keep up the great work.

  28. This is a very well cared for barn. Isn't it funny how photography memes help us be more aware of our surroundings?

  29. Nice barn! When I'm out driving around now and I see barns, I think of YOU and for half a second think about stopping and taking a picture. Enjoy your day!

  31. Cute barn - I definitely pay more attention to them now than I ever did before!

  32. So well cared for even wonder if it may have been converted to a home? Live in an agricultural state but don't see that many "charming" barns. Must do a roadtrip.

  33. Nice, neat barn. Yes, most of us take for granted what we see every day. One thing I like about photography is that it can open our eyes to what's around us.

  34. Hello-
    Popped over from Kerin's blog.
    I used to live in Independence, now I live in Kansas. It's always fun to find people who live in my home state.
    What a great birthday for your daughter. I bet she was really surprised.
