Take My Picture Please by bluemoon

Take My Picture Please

you just gotta love
a little old barn
touched by time
with it’s own charm..
the weatherd wood
shines bright in the sun..
Proud and still standing..
(it’s time isn’t done)………
Think of the tales
that could be told
if barns could talk
of memories they hold..
each one is different
no two are the same..
to see them fading
away, is a shame.
so if you happen upon
a old one please take
a picture and treasure
the portrits they make..
for someday they will
be old memories…
this one was saying
“take my picture, please”!

beautiful composition, looks like something from a movie

Very nice esp. the way the red stands out against the faded wood and the grey sky. I love all of the hodgepodge wood as well.

Love it too...and the poem is great!!

Great shot - love the composition, color, the trees in the background.

Love the colors and the textures and the poem. The barn reminds me so much of my great uncle who built barns for his living.

I agree whole heartedly. Old barns make fabulous subjects. They are all uniquely different with their own charm.

It was my mom's birthday and I literally shot this one on the way home from her house just before dark. Not even a great barn but I took it anyway out of desperation. Thank you all for saying such nice things about this ho hum picture....I admit I loved the poem though!! :)

Bring on all the barn shots! I love old barns too! Great capture!

Beautiful! You've inspired me to start doing barn shots. I tend to think they're boring because they're EVERYWHERE in the area I live. But they really are beautiful....at least yours are! :-)
