An Old Barn


This barn is in the Gaspereaux Valley which is in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia.


Have been passing this barn for years now 
and each year it has become more run-down.


I guess that is exactly what adds to the charm of these old farm structures.


By the looks of it I think it was once used for cattle and hay.


Now that this area is being taken over by vineyards
it no longer has much use as far as I can see.


Maybe it is being used as a storage area for equipment. 
And I see above that there is a power 'hook-up' still remaining.


I think these old barns are a statement/salute 
to how well barns were built 'back in the day'.


On the outside it is being beaten up by the weather and lack of any maintainance.


I bet on the inside the frame is as good as it was when it was built many years ago.

  1. Who knows... Maybe inside it's a totally renovated and very chic living space!

  2. Great images, Jim! I love old barns (but you already know that about me). There are so many that are no longer being used and left to decay. They are returning to the earth and Mother Nature is reclaiming them. I have run across a few that have been renovated and turned into workshops or homes. They are quite interesting!

    1. I really like that thought, Martha, about returning to the earth.....makes a lot of sense when you think about it.
      I know people are crazy for the frame timbers of these old barns.....they are priceless.

    1. It's yours, Jaz! Considering where this barn is, maybe someone will see it's potential now that it is in the centre of 'wine-country'.

  4. I think it is always a shame when these vintage barns are not kept up-as they don't make em like this any more-great photos though

    1. Me too Kathy. Guess they have just been taken for granted for so long, people forget about them as they slowly disappear into the earth.

  5. I love the weathered look of this old barn. Peeling paint and a rusty roof add so much character.

    1. Exactly, Pat! So much more character than a brand spanking new one.

  6. This old barn is lovely, Jim! It has such character despite its weathered neglect. I'm listening to your Pachelbel piece as I write this comment. You always find such amazing pieces ~ loved CUPS tap-dancing too. In my next life I want to come back as a dancer! We've been photographing some of the same grasses in the past week or so. Mim's artistry with makeup was fascinating. I never had much patience for makeup, but I'd love to learn how to put on eyelashes. I had a wonderful friend once (she died way too young), who never went anywhere without her fake eyelashes. I can remember waking up in a tent in the backcountry beyond Checkerboard Mesa in Zion, and here was Renee still in her sleeping bag putting on her eyelashes! It's kind of sad to think of the apple orchards giving way to vineyards ~ there is nothing more wonderful than sitting in an apple tree in a blossom-filled orchard smelling the fragrance, listening to the buzzing bees, and savoring the sight of millions of blossoms against a soft blue sky. I hope that you are having a great week ~ and I'm so glad to know that Ron is over his cold. Take care!

    1. Welcome back Louise! Oh there are still lots of apple trees and pear trees, so you can still have that wonderful time in a tree filled with blossoms!
      Hey, maybe we could be dance partners in our next lives....as I too would LOVE to be a dancer!!! But I lead...hear me!? lol

  7. Oh Jim--this barn is a beauty-- so much character. It's so sad to see the barns in tumbledown state/ but this gives them such details to photograph. I'd love to walk all around this beautiful barn-- your photos are absolutely gorgeous:)

    1. Isn't it Alain. I have been coming to this area for 40 years now and can kind of remember when this barn was a solid red colour. I assume it was old back then too.
