Vintage Barn

As I searched fervently on a winding country road for the rumored yellow Canola fields blooming just north of Nashville, I happened to pass this vintage and pretty dilapidated barn sitting near the edge of the road. As I stopped and turned around, knowing I had taken a wrong turn to find the Canola fields, I stopped a good distance from the old barn to capture several images.

It couldn't have been a more perfect day to stop and snap a few images of a vintage barn out in the middle of the countryside. I love the tan grasses in the field and the gorgeous blue sky with the white fluffy clouds. It's the perfect contrast. I like the way the old vintage conveyor was still perched up against the loft almost as though it had just been used. I don't think I have ever seen an old conveyor still in place. I wonder why the farmer didn't take it down. This area of northern Tennessee is filled with flat farm land and so beautiful. There's nothing like vintage America to make you appreciate times gone by.

It's a rainy, rainy weekend here which meant a postponed photography workshop. Aside from the last two weekends, every weekend for months past have been rainy here in middle Tennessee. This Spring has been exceptionally wet which has kept me from scheduling any other workshops and no meetup group outings. I hope May proves to be a dryer month so I can get outdoors a tad more. Enjoy your weekend all! Back soon. ENJOY!


  1. I'm always looking for barn images. love barns and this is wonderful. I'll take some of your rain, it has been a dry spring here in PA.

  2. Super barn, great contrasts with grass, barn and sky, and conveyer, was that to get hay into the top, or feed for cattle? I want one to move our firewood into the shed!!! Hope you get the fine weekend soon, for your workshop.

    1. Jean I do think the conveyor was for getting bales of hay down from the loft. Love your comments. Carol

  3. Growing up in Kentucky, I developed a love for vintage barns :) great shot.
