Sad Ontario Barn

 Barn outside Beeton, Ontario

Another sad barn, I'm afraid, on its way to being reclaimed by nature.

 Closer look at barn

Closer look at shed

In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I  am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

Looks like you captured that barn in the nick of time! Lots of barns like that in our neck of the woods. They have a kind of haunting beauty to them, in my opinion.

Buttons said...

Oh there are so many of these sad barns and it makes me sad. Great shots. Hug B

Just my kind of barn! Tom The Backroads Traveller

Roan said...

Yes, it is a sad barn, but it sure makes a wonderful picture. Thanks for joining in.

How sad, indeed. When most of these structures have disappeared I suppose someone will save the last few.

Revrunner said...

I like some of the creative things I've seen people do with old barn wood.

The Furry Gnome said...

There are so many deteriorating barns around here, and lots already gone that you don't even realize!

This one might be around for a while yet EG :)

I love their isolated loneliness. Such a rugged beauty you captured here.

It certainly seems to be just a matter of time before this one's gone.

Pamela Gordon said...

It is sad. It looks like that tree or the bushes grew up right in-between them. Someone would love those barn boards though. :)

Andy said...

Cool photos Camera Girl but this is becoming a sad common sight in Ontario.

Sandra said...

There is something haunting about old buildings in this state.

Rose said...

It is really sad to see this one in this state. It looks to have been so well built originally.

TexWisGirl said...

sure is...

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

There is a lot of really nice aged wood there that could be re-used for interior wall paneling.

Lois said...

That is a great find! It is sad, but does provide a wonderful photo opportunity.

RedPat said...

A sad sight!

ladyfi said...

It has a kind of faded beauty.

Stephanie said...

Rather sad looking but makes for great photography.

Sad to see it abandoned. You got cool angles in these pictures, and I like the green intense.

Dilapidated charm. Worn and patinated boards are fine to look at.
Great photo!

Gail Dixon said...

Makes for striking images! All that dilapidated, weathered wood surrounded by the lush green and blue skies. Wonderful set!

Ginny said...

We have many around here like this one. They are a sad sight! I wish they would either be fixed up or torn down, do you agree?

Chandra said...

Nice photos.
I am curious - is there a lake in the b/g or is it all just the big blue sky. I had to look up Beeton, Ontario. I see it is located by a decent size lake.

Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

You're going to make me cry!

Judy said...

That is a sad one, and unfortunately we have too many of these around our area.

Lisa Gordon said...

Even in its decline, I still think that there is something very beautiful about it.

What a shame! ...:)JP

I love the old barns! I hate to see them neglected. Old and maintained is the best of both worlds.

Randy said...

It needs a lot of love.

Ruth Hiebert said...

This barn may be old but it still has a certain beauty about it.

Karen S. said...

It looks so worthy of someone to come in and at least begin mowing. What a nice greenery to enhance and enjoy!

Jack said...

Yes, EG, but some clever recycler will use those old boards in a lovely new building or restoration.

Michelle said...

I always like seeing these weathered buildings.

Felicia said...

wonderful find, sad its abandoned.

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

Doesn't look as though it will be standing for much longer, more's the pity.

Oh I love that gorgeous old barn - the stories it could tell!

Tanya Breese said...

Anvilcloud said...

I am sure not sad to look at the barn.

georgettesullins said...

I wonder if and how the wood could be repurposed.

Judy said...

Every time I see a barn like that, I think of my grandmother's comment - it's coming from together...

Small City Scenes said...

Once useful and now neglected---Sad.

I just love these old barns. The older they are, the more photogenic!
