photoblog image Barn today, Gone tomorrow.

Barn today, Gone tomorrow.

The Barn. Notice it was tore up a bit by the wind over night. Top right corner tin peeled up. In the foreground is the remains of yet another caterpillar.

Interesting how farmers leave these old implements on the property to rust away (same in my posting of today). You should think that these old items will have a good scrap metal value.

Great shot and well composed.
John Eagle: Seems to be a common theme everywhere with farmers. I don’t get it. I know certain machinery is only used at certain times of the year and otherwise left to sit. And equipment breaks down and... parts are robbed from one to fix another. I guess after awhile it is just inevitable that this happens. Call it: Farm Entropy.
hi... another good memory for me. i wonder why rural agriculture always has the same colours? this could be russia, canada or usa.. i grew up in rural alberta (since you asked) and feel the nature of what you show here is so a part of me that i smile inside when i see such.

my family did not farm, but many of my friends did. the community had the old trucks, the cowboy hats and few females like me.

i've only been in nova scotia for a few months. before that i was in BC for more than a decade. ~S.
John Eagle: Happy the shot provides good memories and brings a smile.

I grew up on the Western most edge of the Great Basin, roughly between the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada. Mountains on the sides, high desert, valleys and meadows. Looks similar to Alberta except a smaller region. Farming colors do seem to be the same around the world, red, green, orange... interesting.

It looks like we're on a barn theme this week, aren't we, John. smile (BTW, so glad clicking your name is now working.) I really like your perspective on this, with the machinery in the foreground and especially the hint of that big tire. The colors are wonderful. I love it all.
John Eagle: The barn is the largest and most prominent structure on my dad’s farm. Looking out my window growing up there it was without fail. Not sure exactly what it means for me but it is an icon of my childhood. I didn’t even see he tire until I downloaded the image. The tire does add a nice foreground to the image.
