Drive-by Barns II...Oops


This is another barn I passed during my recent trip. I just hope Hanger's restaurant is in better shape than the barn.

You and your barns. This must be the barn capital of the world!

Linda said...

Interesting billboard on the side of a truck! Hope it doesn't live in that barn! Great eye to catch that...

Carole M. said...

ooops, a slight mishap; some windy weather?

Mary Howell Cromer said...

I like the new look of your blog Brian. That barn looks like it has seen better days for sure. Happy Monday, Happy Week~

Nancy said...

They obviously didn't spend the revenue from the ad on the barn! ;)

Andee said...

That barn needs some TLC.

Tanya said...

looks like it was hit by a tornado or something, poor thing!

YiKeS! I think this one must have gone a round or two w/ a tornado or maybe straight line winds... Beautiful barn, tho, even wind-blown!

Thank you for joining =)

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

ps what size are your pics? mine are 800x600 & these are larger than that... are they maybe 1024x768? WoW! this is where the eyes bug out of the skull! LoL! =)

i love how the front wall still stands straight and tall. :)

the light background is a nice change, too.

Tornado or new way of adding ventilation to the barn. So sad to see that much damage.

so glad I got picture of local barn I posted couple months ago on my blog, drove by on Mother's Day and one side was damaged by wind storm, need to go back and take new pictures.

I don't think it will survive another wind storm. Great photos!

Pearl said...

Looks like SOMEthing ripped through the area, huh?!

It's seen better days!

Debbie said...

ooohhhh so sad, it looks like it was an awesome working barn it the past!!

you didn't try hangers??

Faye said...

I see we're all thinking weather damage. Were you tempted to try to find Hanger's Restaurant to see if it fared better? :-)

Deb said...

cool photos

Tezzie said...

Slightly surreal juxtapositioning! Fun barn capture, for sure...

Pamela Gordon said...

Yikes. It looks like a tornado ripped apart the barn or maybe the Astronaut Farmer lives there. :)

EG CameraGirl said...

Oh oh! This barn's days are numbered, that's for sure.

Leenie said...

The barns in your part of the world succumb to wind and rot. Around here deep snow breaks their backs and puts them down. Still, weathered wood is just picturesque in almost any form.

Andrew said...

It's definately seen better days... would be good to find out the cause of the damage.

Marie said...

So funny! I hope so too!

MarmePurl said...

My, that's a good sized barn. What a fun shot...love the caption.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Oh my- that one looks like it got hit by a strong downdraft!

Becky said...

Tornado damage. or just old age. Wonder what wonderful animals called this a one time home.

love old barns..we don't have many here on the coast...what happened here, does not look that old...barns give that universal peaceful country feeling don't they. Makes you wonder about the history of each one.

Ruta said...

Oh that poor barn!

Mari said...

Wonder what happened to this barn? I love the billboard on the truck - perfect placement!

Carletta said...

I'm looking at all the wooden lath work over the rafters. A lot of time was spent making that old barn. Sad to see it crumbling.
That's some big time movable advertising. :)

Tammy said...

I wonder if this is just falling apart or was it damaged in some bad weather???

Madge Bloom said...

Looks like it saw a bit on wind...

Elaine said...

Nice! Gotta admire the thinking of the ad guys--get your attention with that huge dilapidated barn and get a plug in for the restaurant.

How can you manage to get such great shots from a moving vehicle!

Poor barn. Very nice drive by! My drive by shots rarely turn out this clear.

Meggie said...

In my crazy mind, when I first saw the barn and sign, I was thinking about airplane "hangars". To me it looked like one plane slightly missed the runway! Your photos continue to amaze me.

Drive-by photography always make it more challenging. Great shot of the barn. So sad to see it falling apart.

bon bon said...

it's always a shame to see these once grand structures coming down.

W. Latane Barton said...

It is sad to see old buildings in disrepair. But, like people, they did a good job and now it's time to retire.

Charade said...

My first thought was that a plane crashed into the barn after it took off the top of the silo. A bit of irony that the ad is for Hanger's.

Rose said...

Even though it is falling apart, it made a great photo.
