It might be falling apart but it looks like a work of art here in monochrome..

It may be falling apart, but is is way cool in monochrome.

Great picture.... I really like the way you shot this, and it looks great in BW.

Falling apart is incredibly artistic!

Excellent b&w. That poor old barn isn't going to be around much longer, I don't think. Although I saw some that looked like this one in Colorado from the 1800s.

James said...

A perfect monochrome subject. Photographed very well.

Dagrun said...

A beautiful shot! Good contrasts and a kind of "soft" look.

RuneE said...

A fine use of an excellent subject - impressive!

Aileni said...

You excel in this shot - truly fine.

Bim said...

What a great monochrome ramshackle hut this is. I love it :)

Babooshka said...

An image that is more beautiful the more it's falling apart and decaying.

Judy said...

I keep thinking of my grandmother's phrase - coming from together...

Greyscale Territory said...

Fascinating, artistic lines created by these weathered woods! Great in monochrome!

I guess those old boards have seen better days, BUT if someone took the time to carefully take them down, sand them and give them a coat of stain, just think what a beautiful wall it would make in a living room or den...

What a tease ... I want to see more of this wonderful old barn

PERBS said...

Neat shot in monochrome! You are lucky you can get such a close up of an old barn. They are not so close around here. Usually, the barns have a big old fence around them also.

I love this shot! Really enchanting! It works so perfectly well in B&W!

Vita Stunder said...

Truly stunning EG!!!

I just love the way you shot this and it's done to be B&W!

Have a great week!

Great textures in this b+w. It looks like you and Anne in Norway were on the same wavelength this week.

Liz said...

You find some great fally-apart buildings!

Ellie said...

Everybody tried their idea for repair :) Looks like the plans did not coordinate well :) Lovely structure!

Rose said...

I like this one a lot.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Looks great in a mono shot but a little sad seeing things fall apart.

michael bird said...

Ah, more old wood in the country (was just over at Anne's in Norway). Beautiful and speaks of quiet times in the country.

John said...

I love this kind of shot, I think it's the texture in the wood that does it. It also reminds me of visits to the old Gold mining town of Bodie in the Sierras.

Puna said...

Very nice.
