Weekly Photo Challenge: Object (Old Barn near Altamont update)   25 comments

Sometimes things can take on a new personality during different seasons of the year. Such is the case with this old barn near Altamont, MO. First, you see the plush summer fashion, followed by the more stark fall look.

Whatever time of the year, old barns are fascinating, full of character and a haven for critters of all kinds. And they make wonderful subjects for photography.

For anyone who enjoys old barns and old farm houses, I have a flickr Barns! Barns! Barns! photostream where you can become a member and upload your own photographs.

To be honest, I had pretty much forgotten about it and hadn’t been there probably since July or August of last year. But I went there today and was amazed to find that there are now 16 members and 92 barns and old farm house photographs! Only nine of the photos are mine, including the three I just uploaded today.

The last time I was there, I think there were two or three members, including myself, and about six or so photographs.

Old Barn Near Altamont, MO   Leave a comment

Lonely and forlorn am I,
No longer used I am,
Empty except for mice
And other little critters;
But still I stand proud.

Though somewhat less
Than once I was,
Still reaching skyward,
Ready to receive
The hay in my loft
That will never come;
But still I stand proud.

Left alone and abandoned,
Still I understand
That time goes on
And so do people,
Yet I must stay;
But still I stand proud.

Feel free to visit my Barns! Barns! Barns! flickr photostream where you can participate by uploading your own photos of old barns, farm houses and anything else old farm-related. You can find it here.
