Old Barn, Old Pick-up

On Sunday afternoon, Motor Man and I went motoring out in the country, down the back roads, in search of old barns.

It was a successful trip.

This old barn has definitely seen better days, but I’m guessing she was a beauty in her day. The diamond-shaped windows in the front are amazing. (You should be able to click on the picture to enlarge it.)

And of course, that old bright yellow Ford pick-em-up truck is quite an eye-catcher herself.

Linking up with Tricia’s Barn Charm.

  1. Never seen diamond shaped windows on a barn but they fit nicely up in the peak of the roof. Old truck is the perfect “color accent” out front too!

  3. Love the contrast. As bright as that pick-up is, wonder if it might be a restored “old” pick-up. Hard to tell from the picture!

  13. This is a great barn, very unusual windows. Agree with others, that truck takes center stage. It was a beautiful day for a drive.

  14. The truck and the barn work together to make each other stand out!! I’ve certainly never seen all barns, but I don’t remember ever seeing diamond windows in one… and that old yellow pickup reminds me of a blue one that I used to know 😉

  19. She’s definitely seen better days but still possesses her charm.
    That old yellow truck sure puts a great spin on the scene. 🙂
    My son’s first car was a VW that same color.
    Love the corn stalks in the foreground as well.

    I was wondering when I posted my barn if you had taken a shot of the same one. I still have two or three left from the same area.

  20. Love that yellow truck! A real eye-catcher!

  21. What a great shot! I love the old barn, and having the old truck in front of it just makes the shot!

  22. What a fun contrast between the brightness of the truck and the aging barn. Great photo. It’s a peach all right. 🙂

    The windows in the barm are very different and the old yellow truck just looks it goes with everything around it. Love the shot.
