An Old Barn in Mt. Airy New Jersey


This old barn has seen better days. It looks like it's had plenty of use over the years.
This is my entry in the Old Barn meme at Bluff Area Photo. Follow the ink if you like old barns and/or you want to participate.

  1. Boy it's a beauty though the way you captured it. I like how the white stands out. Hey. I mentioned you and Vicki on a post today. Sorry it's late but I just didn't know. :)

  2. It has seen better days but I'll bet it could tell some good stories if it could talk.

  4. Oh Black & White! Very nice, Very niiice!!!
    Some people would take one look at a run down place like this & be disgusted, but I absolutely love them - The history in them is fascinating to me!

    Very much appreciated!

  6. Oh wow, it looks like a big monster took a big bite out of the roof of the first image! Love all the textures playing off the relative smoothness of the sky. I'm beginning to think b & w is best for showing off textures.

  8. Black and white really captures the feeling of this old barn. It sure could use some TLC.

  9. In those places, people seem to have added a new thing each time they needed it, without carying of harmony; Places made to work, not always beautyful but always rich and interesting for a photographer..

  10. I did a double take when I saw this barn, especially the roof. Amazing the way you captured it, James. Thanks for sharing. This is my last visit from North Africa. I will be online in South Africa in two days' time and blogging again. Until then, blessings from Jo.

  12. I think it's perfect for the b&w theme, but I need to confess that I loved the other picture with all colours and the red barn.
    Different views and idea, and always a fabulous work with your creative mind, congratulations! :)

  16. This particular barn is quite dear to me. The farm itself is still in working condition. When I was little, this dairy farm was what made me a country bumpkin. I can remember clear as day when a calf was born in that right nook of the barn. Inside was where the cows were milked and cats took shelter. When I was in high school, I sketched this barn from a different angle and have so many pictures from childhood. One barn holds many stories. So while it looks like this barn has seen better days in the past, it is in reality still experiencing them in the present. Thank you for doing it justice in your picture.
    PS - Watch for Mt. Airy in the movie I Am Legend. It's the safe haven at the end of the movie and is a safe haven in real life.
