Falling Down #5

Fishtrap Road — Prosper (Denton), Texas.

I had intended to convert these to pseudo sepia tones,
but I couldn't bring myself to do it.

I like the way the subtle grey tones of these first two photos is the
same across the barn, the landscape, and the sky.

I like the late afternoon sun on the slats.

I wish I could have gotten closer, but there was barbed wire.
There was no house, and I know it probably wouldn't have mattered,
but I try to respect other people's property and don't trespass.

Great pics Leah!
Hopefully Paint Girl will get that bridle on her pony soon so I can post a pic on my blog. I saw it in person last weekend...I love it, it would look awfully nice on my pony, hee! Sisters do share, right? ;)

Wonderful photos. It would be a grand barn to repair and have back in its glory days.

Your pictures are gorgeous. The lighting is just right for the color of the buildings. Thanks for sharing.

Those photos have such character and great lighting. I had some photos of an old farmhouse with a NO TRESPASSING sign in front of it, and I obviously trespassed to get close up shots, but that was only because I knew the house was abandoned and the land was owned by a subdivision contractor who had only gotten as far as paving a few roads around it and setting up an outhouse. If it were someone's humble abode, I definitely would have stayed out.

Good morn, I love your pictures of old building. You do a great job capturing different views and the personality of the building as it is now. Keep up the good work. Fl. Fan. Bev

I love old barns. Love 'em. These photos are fabulous!

When I was a kid we lived in the middle of Kansas (miles and miles and miles of nothingness) and would go out for Sunday drives. It wasn't uncommon for us to stop at abandoned buildings or old farm houses and look for stuff. Depression era glass, old canning jars, fun old farm equipment, a few cow skulls, etc. wound up going home with us.

What cool pictures those are! I love old falling-down buildings. Especially out in the middle of big fields - I start dreaming about restoring them and having a fantastic place of my own ;)

These are wonderful, I think you were right leaving the colour as is. That must have been one heck of a place when it was first built.

I finally got picks of the two old barns I pass on my way to my mom's. I'm going to try to get them up sometime this week.

Really love this one.I have a thing for the old barns too.... Nice photos of it, and sometimes the images are great just the way they are with the subtle coloring, blending into the landscape, good call.

What amazing shots! I love old barns!! I was just looking at some PAC approved show and there were a few open shows in Denton!!

I read your comment over at Browneyed Cowgirls, about McQuay, I had a good friend that worked as assistant trainer there for a few years. He now has his own reining business. That is so cool that you live right there. I am so jealous!!

But anyway, great barn shots!! I love them, and I would love some of that old wood too!!

Old barns are so neat. They never fail to capture the imagination.

Beautiful photos the way they are!

Leah, I noticed when I was reading your profile that you were interested in twins. Are you a twin?

I enjoy seeing pics of these old barns. We don't have too many around here.

Hey cowgirllynn,
I think you may have clicked on my profile by accident, as Leah and I share a blog with Nuzzling Muzzles. I have twin sons.
