Even though that's a great barn I noticed the buzzard first thing. Great catch.

Peggy said...

I would love to spend the day following you and your camera around. Buzzard makes it perfect!

Carole Meisenhelter said...

great barn; I remember a song about the buzzard and the oriele? ...

Snapper II said...

I would sweep it out and move in LOL

Clint said...

Great shot of a universal Texas icon.

Desiree said...

Hound Girl said...

ZI love shots of buzzards, I didnt even notice the barn lol

Kathy said...

That green grass poking through is a good sign!

Roan said...

I'm glad to see a little green poking through all that brown. Love the buzzard!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

$5 says there's a couch inside.... ;-)

Mary said...

I'm going to try and join in on Barn Charm! I love old barns too.

Sandra said...

ha ha on the couch, i will not take that bet. the buzzard seems to be watching the barn, he knows something we all know, death is nigh

Jan n Jer said...

LOL...that is so true!

Ellie said...

I was thinking your grass was looking a bit more green - you had any rain by any chance?

Woody said...

The buzzard is practicing for Halloween and he's found the perfect hangout.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

What is it about the old buildings/barns that are so charming? It's good to see some green in the pastures there!

Samantha said...

What a great catch, that buzzard on the pole!

polkadotpeticoat said...

I love the buzzard....look at your green grass I'm in the throws of brown....

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

There are so many old barns around our country. I think it's good to keep photo reminders of them.

Debbie said...

i like this one t!! is it being used or is it abandon??

nice of the buzzard to include himself in the shot, i like icing on cake!!

Sylvia K said...

Always love your barn shots and this one complete with buzzard is another winner! Hope you have a great day!

Melodie said...

Nothing like a good Buzzard to make a shot special!

wayside wanderer said...

glad you mentioned the buzzard. I have a hard time getting my eyes off the beautiful rusty roof. and you reminded me I have a couple of pictures in my camera of a tree full of buzzards. watch them not come out well.

latebloomerbuds said...

Is this a joke? It duplicated. I'm not THAT excited.

Chip "Rocket Man" Allen said...

Old barns are always interesting, We've got a ton around here and they're my go to subjects when i'm shooting monochrome.

bailey-road.com said...

The rusty roof and its setting midst the greenery make this very utilitarian barn look lovely!

rainfield61 said...

I am mistaken the icing on my cake as the buzzard.

sweetdaysundertheoaks said...

Very interesting. It's so looowww. The roof has character Tex! And I love me some icing on the cake :) I agree that it is nice to see some green in your bit of the country!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

I would not want to be inside that barn during a hail storm!

Farm Girl said...

I love the buzzard on the lightpole!
Very nice and it really looks like the barns around here. :)

Linda said...

Your photos are so serene. Even with buzzards lurking in the background:)

Gigi said...

Great photo! You must live close to my neck of the woods here in East Texas? I see scenes like this often but rarely stop to take a photo -- seems I'm always in too much of a hurry to get wherever I'm going at the time. Reckon I ought to slow down a bit ;)?
Blessings,
G

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Love that rusty tin roof!

Pricilla said...

That barn looks like it would attract a buzzard....

Judy said...

I would have missed that if you hadn't pointed that out.

Darcie (My Modern Country) said...

Old Barn and a Buzzard...great combo!

Robin said...

T, I like this one! It has great character!

Pat Tillett said...

I'm with you! the photo of the old barn is good in it's own right. The buzzard is a bonus!

Fjällripan said...

So it was a bird sitting there! :) I was going to ask about that...

Chatty Crone said...

You are amazingly lucky - I have no idea how you do it. sandie

Raindrops and Daisies said...

Karen said...

Lovely rural scenes.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

The state of the barn, the surrounding area and the buzzard all make this seem like a scene out of an old-west movie. I expect to see Gabby Hayes lying behind the barn (that's who the buzzards were always waiting for)...back a zillion years or so ago when I watched cowboy movies.

That buzzard "embellishment" over a decaying barn might be considered a little unsettling to some. ;-)

KAT said...

Nice of Mr Buzz to pose for us all !!!

Wondering if it's Heckle or Jeckle atop that pole. Great shot Texwis!

bj said...

Mercy, child, you have good eyes..I didn't see the buzzard until you mentioned it. :))

Nezzy said...

What beautiful photos. This could be one of the old hog farrowin' houses that sat on our property here on the Ponderosa.

God bless ya and have a most extraordinary day!!! :o)

Pam said...

I wonder if the buzzard smells something inside.. sniff sniff :>)
Hugs,
Pam

Hi Texwisgirl, I just love today's pictures! Great work! By the way, after Friday, I will have spotty Internet access for a bit so if I don't catch your post for a day or two here and there, please do not think I am not liking your site. I will be right back here commenting as soon as I can.

Great barn, but I think the buzzard is out of luck. Any critters are long gone!

I love it! You're so right about Mr. Buzzard, he does add an extra touch to the scene.

Lucy aka Roeann said...

Man you get lotsa comments. What was I going to say now. Oh! The barn. LOVE IT! There's just something about old buildings and the stories they could tell.

Rose said...

I am behind as usual after a weekend...we saw lots of buzzards this weekend. Passed an old dead tree on the way to Sarah's...it had at least a dozen or fifteen sitting in it, I would so have loved to take a picture of them.

Deb said...

buzzards and barns...cool...

Paula said...

Had to laugh at the comment about there being a couch in the old barn.

Little bit of creep factor with the buzzard I'd say. lol
