Some Barns of Rockbridge County


Since I cannot figure out the enlarging feature, I am posting the first two pictures individually. Even with some suggestions from y'all, I am still stumped. Sometimes it is just hard to teach an old dog a new trick :-) These are some more shots from my  snowy "Joy Ride."

I was so excited to finally see a barn with signs and a big star. It is in awesome condition.

 Poor Baby. This was such a sweet little mini-barn. It breaks my heart to see any of these wonderful old structures fall into abandoned disrepair. Don't you know it has some wonderful stories to tell if only it could talk.

  2. Love, love all of these barns. And your pictures do open when clicked and are a little larger than in the post. They will only enlarge to the actual size of the photo - in pixels. Not sure if that is what you are talking about.

  4. In love with the barn in the 2nd photo...it's something about that black roof that makes it pop. And of course the lovely leading lines.

  5. You got a lot of joy out of that ride Genie! The beautiful barn with the signs is fabulous... There's something terribly heartbreaking about broken down farm buildings -- I always want to know the story of what happened .

  10. That portion of a barn is just plain pitiful....needs a decent burial. I adore the one with the signs on it! I wish we had some with signs on them around here!

  11. A trio of beautiful barns, but I especially like the shot of the little mini-barn! I clicked on your photos and they enlarged okay and that feature appears to be working normally.

  16. Great, great shots. Barns always have intriguing stories, maybe because so much history is there, and so much life revolves around them.

  17. Fantastic beautiful barn! I love those old falling down shacks, too. I always wonder about their history.

  18. I do love that cute little barn. Wonder what it'd purpose was. Very strange construction.
    Really yucky weather here. Rain, slop, cold, and more snow on the way. I guess we're used to it this time of the year, but I so want Spring.
    Been catching the Yanks spring training games. Too bad about Grandy. They will miss him, and I heard the Phillies announcers say today who knows when or if A-Rod will be back..I might not care, except at his best he was an asset to the team. I have a Yankee watch too. Don't wear it. Too big for my liking.
