    It has been through a lot and has many tales to tell.

    It took me a while to realize that we can see through the barn, and we aren’t looking at some abstract art piece… And I love your image of the branch at the top of your page.

    Yes, if the window could talk?

  4. You know I love them barns!

    Morning Eliza.
    I find old buildings fascinating, the more dilapidated the better. Not as pretty as flowers, but more intriguing with stories to tell.

    Totally gorgeous

  7. So much character and history in our old barns. Can’t help but wonder what is inside.

  8. A great subject well treated

  9. I’ve never met an old barn I didn’t love, and this is no exception. Handsome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Intriguing. Weathered by time. I wonder how old?

  11. Fabulous capture of the beautiful old barn and window!๐Ÿ™‚

    It still looks good!

  13. Wonderful colors and composition!

  14. Dale says:

    Beautiful image, Eliza. I so love to photograph old barns. They have such character!

  15. Debbie says:

    If only old things like this barn could talk!! I’d love to listen to its stories, wouldn’t you?!!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Absolutely. Tales of newborn calves, maybe sheep, a rooster and some hens, perhaps? Old tractors and farm equipment, or even earlier, horses and tack. My imagination runs wild. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Very nice, Eliza! โค๏ธ

  17. Irene says:

    Lovely reflection in the window.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Irene. Actually, I’m looking through the barn to the field beyond. Part of the back wall had collapsed to reveal this interesting perspective. One never knows what we’ll find when exploring!

  18. naturebackin says:

    Such a striking photo – and interesting how one has to work out if it’s a reflection or if one is looking through the window. I like how you composed the shot.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Pretty much, some old farm equipment, but part of the back wall was down, so who knows how long it will stand? Sad to see these old barns go… every winter heavy snow causes the unmaintained ones to collapse.

  19. Cathy says:

    Full of atmosphere and thought-provokingโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  20. That’s an intriguing shot … I was also wondering whether it was a view through or a reflection in the window.

  21. I like the contrast of the weathered wood and the bright green grass.

  22. Very Nice Eliza! Enjoyed seeing your image!

  23. Robin says:

    Nicely done, Eliza! I love the colors and composition. It took me a minute to realize I was looking through the window. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Joanne says:

    Imagine the stories that old barn could tell! Beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. A subject after my own heart! I would love to be able to explore this old barn with you. NICE!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Denise! New England is full of old barns and my area of western Mass., particularly. If you ever are in the area, I’d love to show you a few. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I know about that somewhat and have photographed old barns in Vermont and New Hampshire a few times. Massachusetts is full of history. I visited Old Sturbridge Village once too!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        I haven’t been to OSV in a couple decadesโ€“ it’s a great museum of colonial life. I loved their water-powered saw mill and heritage breed cattle.

    A beauty, Eliza. Nice frame within a frame. ๐Ÿ™‚
