Kentucky Barns...Old School

Last week I showed you some Kentucky Barns that were well maintained and primarily used for horses. This week's offering features some not-so-shiny barns that, while not in the best of shape, are still very much being used. These are typical agricultural barns.


Barn #1





Barn #2
To avoid the trees in the foreground, I had to shoot through fencing for the second photo which caused the shadows on the sides.





Barn #3





Barn #4





Barns #3 & #4
If you look in the background on the right side of the first photo, you can see one of the barns featured in last week's post.





Barn #5
Some barns do get treatment for whatever is ailing them.

barn #3 is my absolute fave. love that rusty roof and tiny cupolas. but barn #4 was a close 2nd with that cool, large entry. then you put them together on one property in one shot. SOLD! :)

the plastic to repair the last barn - interesting. painting? termites?

All of your barns this week are so interesting and so different from the ones I see here in our county. The second one is really impressive in its length and the white boards here and there along the side. It is amazing how different they are one from the other. What a great series. genie

Barns #3 and 4 have a lot of character. All great shots, thanks.

Linda said...

Nice that you give both sides of the story, so to speak...I really love these old barns - makes you wonder how long they have stood there, and how much longer they will stand if they don't get some treatment like that last one! Lovely shots!

Maiu said...

Tanya said...

Especially like the close up shot of the barn with the hay inside the door...

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

The last one looks like it's being quarantined off! =0 The cupolas and weather vanes are really nice! I'm really loving that 4th barn, beautiful! However, love the rusted roof on #3. I think you could run marathons in the 2nd one & I like the looks of the peeling white wash look of the 1st! Great barns & shots for Barn Charm, thanks so much for linking up! =)

Great barns. I love that first one, and the one that you can 'drive' through.
