Lonely Barn Charm

Motor Man and I REALLY need to go barnstorming. My stash of barn photos is dangerously low.

(Teaser: an upcoming day trip is in the works and, hopefully, will replenish my supply.)

This is another photo from our trip to Sperryville in March. The skies were overcast  –  not the best day for pictures.

I thought this little barn looked lonely, standing all by itself in the field, and the dreary day seemed to add to its loneliness. Thankfully, the weather didn’t prevent us from having a nice day, enjoying the scenery and visiting with friends.

  1. It does look a bit lonely…..but I do love the photo – there’s a lot of color in it even for a dreary day!


  2. Love your rolling hills. It’s pretty flat along our Gulf Coast.

  3. Very very charming! The patina-like look of the roof is so pretty.
    Good Morning!

  4. It does look lonely and empty, but beautiful all the same. Love all your barn pic posts and the little stories that go with them 🙂

  5. poor little thing…it’s very airy!

  6. That is a great photo/barn. It would be a nice painting too. It kind of has that Andrew Wyeth look to it. 🙂 Pamela

  7. It does look a little lonely but there was nothing to interfere with your picture taking!

  8. Beautiful pic!

  9. The overcast sky adds to the feeling of loneliness and works well with the drab color of the barn :-).

  10. makes a great image!

    Very calming and good picture. Small things come in big packages sometimes and this barn is one of those.

  12. There’s something about a barn on it’s own that is so charming. Love this one!

  13. I’m surprised it’s survived; it looks like a candidate for demolition.. The isolated barn & ‘dreariness’ of the setting are parts of the charm, in my opinion! Those trees are the perfect backdrop- it’s a candidate for the canvas, too 😉

  14. It definitely looks lonely and maybe not even used. It surely turned itself into a pretty picture with the click of your camera. genie

  15. Wow, look at this old place….just love it. A favorite photo of yours (for me) – I agree with Marshall’s comments…and think as a canvas print it would really work well!

  16. It does look rather lonely.

  17. I love the setting…the barn just adds to the charm.

  18. There is something mysterious about this one – like it has a secret life. And the dark day adds to the mystery. Perfect shot Dianna!

  19. That little barn is practically see thru but still standing, what stamina!

  21. Lonely, indeed, but what an awesome shot… love that old barn – keep an eye on it & get some more shots before it collapses =0
