Sharon M said...

I like them all.

Jan n Jer said...

Very nice...at least this old charmer is being used to store hay!

Meggie said...

When looking at the black and white, my first thoughts were, "cooler weather". I wonder if the barn is still in use. It looks like there is still a well-used road leading up to it. As always, your photography is outstanding....

An old barn with fresh tracks.

I think black and white makes us pay a bit more attention to composition and you hit it right on the head here. Great job!

i like the eerie feel to the first two, but the hay bales put a good feeling into the 3rd. :)

I was thinking a different "b & w" before opening this post, Brian. What a great choice for this particular barn--emphasizes that bold roofline, the weathered and ageing structure. Looks like it still has a bit of use left in it?

Beth said...

Beautiful black and white shots!

I like the different views you gave of this barn, from a distance gradually getting closer. And it's wonderful in b&w!

Kerri said...

These are FAB in B&W!!

TheChieftess said...

Black and White is perfect for these! I actually like the first and third best...the first gives a feeling of loneliness and isolation, the last emphasizes the rustic age of the building...

Debbie said...

I see fresh tire tracks, are they yours?

Beautiful place, I love the black and white!

Fantastic old barn. Perfect in black and white.

Marc Heath said...

Like the black and White Brian. Works well.

Shaun Gibbs said...

really liking the composition of the first one, giving some interest in the foreground / empty space. Really excellent work.

I love all three of these, but I think I like the last the best. I like that peek inside at all the hay.

Pamela Gordon said...

Nicely done in black and white Brian. I didn't notice the hay bales until the closeup shots. Thought it was unused. :)

Rose said...

Wonderful old barn...love that last image most.

Bev said...

Wonderful love the old barns!!

Nell at njschout said...

Contrasts between light and dark very affective. Specially love the 2nd and 3rd shot!

Deb said...

I love black and white photos...great job Brian...

Mari said...

Wow - amazing shots! The barn is a beauty. I really like that top shot.

Carletta said...

Beautiful shots Brian! Your choice of black and white for this aging barn is perfect.

Rohrerbot said...

A great choice for the pics. Love the bales in the barn....still being used:)

Gillian Olson said...

This barn has a "face" and personality.

Renae said...

That barn looks just like the one in "O Brother Where Art Thou?" that they burn down in one of the opening scenes.

Great Photography, btw!

Magnificent old barn- lovely in black & white.

Tricia Hays said...

Amazing images! I love that you used black and white. The big tree, and hay makes it even more special. The old road leading up to the barn is wonderful too!

Genie said...

Brian...These images are stunning in black and white. I love the way you take us closer and closer in each shot. We have a neighbor who own property with a barn like this. You thing it is deserted until you drive up and see it houses bales of hay. Monochrome was the perfect medium for these pictures.genie

Liz said...

Stunning in B&W, Brian!

Ida said...

Beautiful. That last shot is my favorite.
