Big Black Barn

Since this is the first and only truly black farm I have ever seen, I decided it only fitting to post it in black and white. It sits directly behind the Rockbridge Baths Volunteer Fire Department and pass it each night on my way home from school. I just love that it is one of what I call the "one-of-a-kinders". This frame is from French Kiss textures.


Here it is in the original color with one of Kim Klassen’s “grunge” textures and framing by Coffeeshop.

  9. Hi there - that barn look sort of "alpine" - can’t say that I know why I think that, but there you go!

    I think I prefer the first image!

  16. Beautiful job, Genie. I love the texture and it would be great hanging on the wall. I found that on Lisa's download to pick from web, then pick frame automatically.
    You get a choice of web images and it's easy since the macro is usually the first one or two. try it!

  26. Sometimes it's SO hard to choose.
    So I won't.
    Love them both!

  27. Great barn. I like the windows too, and the slope of the roof, which I assume is to help snow slide off more readily.

    Nice shot.
