Barn Charm: Going, Going…

Today, for Barn Charm, I’m sharing more barn photos from the day trip Motor Man and I took to the Corapeake area of North Carolina a few weeks ago.

Uh-oh. Looks like we have a problem in the far right corner.

The view from a different angle. Sure hope there’s nothing of value in that little barn.

And the best close-up shot we could get. (Motor Man took this one.)

  1. This is a great series of photos. Love the closeup. Kind of makes me sad when I see old barns falling down. They have such character, though 🙂

  2. These are very old. I wonder if the falling barn will be there when you return some day?

  3. This barn looks a bit like I feel some days (!!). It looks like it finally gave up the struggle to keep standing. Wonder which of the other buildings will be next?! The light dusting of snow adds a great touch to the photos.


  4. Poor little barn. It’s a shame that so many barns are falling down. Guess there’s nothing to put in them these days to encourage taking care of them

  5. This trio of barns is very charming. I think that there are three makes them a special picture Dianna. Too bad about the wonky falling down barn. Love love love the middle shot!

  6. It’s so sad to see a barn crumbling. Just to think of the years and history it’s witnessed makes you wish it’s walls could talk.

  7. I smile when I think about you and Motor Man armed only with your camera motoring about and stopping for a quick photo — then jumping quickly back into the car and driving away, trying not to appear suspicious! Whether barns, fences or beautiful horses, you must be laughing as you go about your daily photo assignments and blog work. 😀

  8. Though the poor barns have come to the end of their journey. I’m sure they were very useful at one time. Nice shots.

  9. Hope someone saves that beautiful old weathered wood!

  10. Looks like that scene will soon be gone and that is a real shame. I hate to see the neglect to pretty and useful buildings.

  11. Wow, that one really does look like it’s going! I’ve often wondered, when I see one of these old buildings on its last legs, if the next puff of air will push it over! Amazing how long some structures can last in this condition! Too bad it was allowed to get to this point. Maybe the wood will be salvaged and have a second life as repurposed flooring or some lovely bit of woodwork!

  12. Definitely on their last legs! : )

  13. I know of a couple of other old structures in the same condition. I’m thinking of one old one in particular – on the backroads in this area – I haven’t seen it in a while, but I know it’s just a matter of time before it goes ..

  14. That poor, poor old barn! =0

  15. A charming group of barns, not long for this world! The weathered/shaded wood is so pretty!

    I am sure these three barns were something in their day! Great shots.

  17. There is something moving about a building in decay. I don’t know what it is, but in some ways I find them a thing of beauty.

    Beautiful blog you have here, Dianne. ❤

  18. oh, dear…

  19. I love photos of decaying structures. Now this one is beyond help but so interesting anyway. Thanks for sharing a new perspective on barn charm. 🙂

  20. I’m fascinated at leaning barns, I’ve seen then hang on for years. Great shots.

  21. oh, don’t say gone. It’s a shame to see them fall. (like your header image).

  22. I’m going to give Motor Man this one 🙂 love the close up!

  23. It’s such a sad-looking building. It’s too bad that no one took better care of it.

  24. Nice shots. Motor Man did well on his, too.

    That’s a shame, great photo Motor Man took 🙂 Have a wonderful Wednesday xx00xx

  26. Oh my, that last one is kind of sad. This is a nice series of photos!

  27. That is just so sad. It’s like watching someone die of cancer…you are helpless as they just dwindle away. So sad.

  28. Wonderful! You seem to find great barn pictures wherever you go.
