Falling Down Barn 24 hours before Demise

This was the image I promised to put up after the poison ivy barn. Unfortunately, when I wake up in the middle of the night and decide to do something, sometimes I don't remember my promises. That's the reason for the shipwrecked in between the two images. Although I think that is a pretty neat building to get a glimpse of.

This is the barn that I had been photographing for years and that my husband said was going to fall. He was right. Within 24 hours of his prediction it was down on the ground...and what a loss. Well we can remember it in this form which is pretty unbelievable.

My sister Bonnie, who is a professional artist, often does paintings or prints using my photos as inspiration. This was one photo that caught her eye and she did a monoprint of it. You can see this piece by selecting this link...or I'm going to try to make this work with the link software.

  1. I know this is late, but your photo is very interesting. I've seen lots of damaged barn in photographs, but I can say this is definitely the best one I've seen. Even in still shots, I could feel the strength the wind and this barn that's trying it's best to hold on. Sad to know that it fell off in 2010, but at least it left you with a lovely photo as a souvenir. - Eulalia @
