One Extreme or the Other

Next to a highway, no where to hide.

 Or tucked deep among the trees.
Both probably go unnoticed by most folks passing by.

Linking to Barn Charm

I'll be riding passenger along hwy. 71 - I hope to snap some drive-by barns today!! You're right - most people just ignore them!

Buttons said...

Good morning Tex they would never go unnoticed by me.
I love the one hidden in the bushes I think the rusty look helps. B

Steve Gravano said...

Looks like a lot of character in the first one. So true how some things just go un-noticed by some folk.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

would love to see more of the 3rd barn ... looks interesting. shy & hiding??! great find. (:

Kerri said...

Yes they probably do .... and those people are missing out on some great barns by not paying attention :)
Happy Monday!

Nancy Claeys said...

They are such a view to the past -- and should be noticed! I'm glad you found these. :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

They're lucky they have you to notice them!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

You are so right, T. We don't notice the obvious... or the tucked away... we fly past on our "missions" for the day. Thank you for giving us pause to notice. blessings ~ tanna

Pix at Under the Oaks said...

Love the one tucked away with the red rust roof!

Łucja-Maria said...

Good morning, Tex!
Interesting pictures, nice scenery.
Have a nice day.

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, I spy with my little eye........great buildings.....out in the open or tucked away in the trees.........Happy Thanksging......Blessings Francine.

Kathy said...

Most people maybe , but not us folks who are fascinated with barns!

Michaele said...

Some barns are just more shy than others : )

Sandra said...

i will take the one in the trees... and you are right, people probably pass it every day and never see it. unless they have photographer eyes

edenhills said...

I hate when those awesome barns are hidden from view!

Madge Bloom said...

Perhaps, but they didn't escape you! :-)

Maple Lane said...

Wonderful finds.

Pom Pom said...

I always want to stop and capture a barn or two. I try to imprint them in my memory.

Sally said...

Wonderful shots as always!

Have a great day MsT. :)

Molly The Wally said...

Oh the barn charm. Have a lovely Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Muffy's Marks said...

Everyone is in such a hurry these days, that those picturesque scenes go unnoticed. Thank you for taking the photos and causing awareness.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Unnoticed by most, but not us crazy barn lovers...I need one of those bumper stickers that says "I brake for cool barns"!

Linda said...

Honestly, Theresa, you make me want to start shooting barn photos. The barns in our area, which is largely Amish, are so different from the ones in your posts. That one barn certainly looks too close to the road for comfort.

Jan n Jer said...

Only for the eye looking through a camera!

nene said...

Unfortunately we pass so much without observing because we are so set on yieldings of destinations both literally and philosophically.

These wonderful looking barns are visual mnifestations of this condition

Gracias for opening our eyes to this, mi amiga

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa...I love barns and most usually see them when I don't have a camera or where a major highway has been cut through the country side and you can't stop grrr!!
Thanks for noticing and making them famous lol ; )

Charmers!

Sharon Wagner said...

If you were in Belize you might find a Mayan ruin hidden in the bushes

nic.b van es said...

dat is meestal zo,je moet er wel oog voor hebben.

Red said...

They may not go unnoticed but I'm sure they're ignored except by keen eyed photographers.

Jeevan said...

Nice shots on the highway!

Jacquelineand.... said...

Lucky for us, we have a sharp-eyed (photo) shootist to help us see the charm of the practical, home-ish, and neglected.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I like the one tucked in the trees and I'm sure I would notice it!

Farm Girl said...

I just love them.

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

love them.

Love them is my passion also of barns.

Nice Charms.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Now the barn tucked in with the trees looks like it just might have some true barn character to it.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Perfect title! Both interest me in exploring, must be my love of barns not matter the shape, color, condition, or location.

Daryl said...

i brake for barns ...

val's alentejo blogspot.com said...

poor little barn..looks all forlorn and alone.
Its so true Tex.. we dont often see the obvious.!
val

don said...

I like this low barn along a busy road. This happens to me often and the reason I do so many drive-by shots.
Good presentation today for Barn Charm.

Bob Bushell said...

Love the barns, all falling down...well, I think so.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

Most do go unnoticed, sad to say.

Dianne said...

back behind the trees would be where I'd want to be

Sylvia K said...

Yep, I'm with Dianne -- back behind the trees for me, too!

EG CameraGirl said...

The barn truly does seem awfully close to the road!

barbara l. hale said...

Nice, plain, down-to-earth barns. I would hope that I would notice them if I happened to pass by.

Leave It To Davis said...

Until I got a camera that I love taking pictures with, it was a shame what I was passing by without taking the time to stop and notice. We all go by life much too fast. Everyone should have a camera and look at life through the eye of the camera. It takes on an entirely new form. I love it!

Lindsjö taxar said...

Great picture....thanks for your nice comments, hugs from us!

SweetMarie said...

I'm glad you noticed them. :) The last photo is gorgeous!
Hugs to you from me. :)

Fábio Martins said...

Have a good night :) *

Patty Woodland said...

There are just hundreds of them waiting for your artistic eye

ladyfi said...

Tucked behind trees would suit me best! Lovely barns.

Pride In Photos said...

It is so wonderful to see all the posts on barn charms! I live in Florida and not alot of barns down my way. Thanks for sharing.
Laurie

Pam :) said...

Charming enough to catch your eye..

Ms. A said...

I see so few barns, they wouldn't go unnoticed by me. Love the one in the trees!

S. J. Qualls said...

Too many people focusing on what's on their minds, I expect. I think looking at barns is similar to stopping to smell the roses.

Deb said...

so happy you noticed them...and shared with us...

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

The last barn is so intriguing. Maybe one day you can get a little closer and show us more. Love them all, though!

Robin said...

T, nice! Funny how things become so common place that people don't even see them anymore!

Lisa Gordon said...

Wow, that really is close to the highway.
Looks like a wonderful structure.

Giga said...

Bardziej mi się podoba schowana wśród drzew. Pozdrawiam serdecznie.
The more I like hidden among the trees. Yours sincerely.

Brian King said...

I definitely like the tree extreme better, but sometimes there's no getting away from roads or development.

DIMI said...

Interesting pictures, nice scenery!
Dimi...

Margie said...

Nothing escapes you dear T! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours my friend. xo

Jeanne said...

Just a big old gray barn with years of story to tell. Most would not notice unless there was a big old ugly ad posted on it.
Whenever I see very old buildings I wish I could go back in time to see them in their prime.

Cloudia said...

great country, Tex

Our Neck of the Woods said...

There are so many barns out here that I feel like people just overlook but I notice them!

Visiting from Barn Charm :)

Deanna said...

Isn't it funny how we "photographer's" notice things others don't. I am always on the look-out for interesting barns, that hidden one looks intriguing!!

The Farmer's Daughter said...

We pass by barns like this all too often and take them for granted. I'd love to see more of the one in the trees. . .looks interesting. . .

Michelle said...

I always like those hidden gems!

Beth said...

Wonderful shots!

Nell at njschout said...

Every barn is interesting to us, : ) but I'm sure many would not notice them.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

The gray of the highway actually looks good in contrast to the gray of the barn! Very good photos! We went on a little drive this weekend and now I look for barns everywhere!

Dar said...

I'm always snapping barns too. The one by the highway probably was originally a lone barn in a field until a highway was built...sometime progress ruins things.
Blessings

Kaya said...

This is a very charming barn. It is wide and low but I like how it stands by the road. So proudly and showing that it is still strong.

Beautiful captures of this charming barn!!!

parker said...

I do believe the Urban Sprawl with four lanes and highlines has reached their location!

Rohrerbot said...

There's probably a lot of interesting things going on in the barn close to the highway. It's always the ones closest to high traffic areas that have the most stories;)

SandyCarlson said...

These are great shots!

Sally in WA said...

I bet we pass many barns along the road without even noticing them. Its a bonus when we do find them. Nice captures! Have a great Thanksgiving.

Lynne said...

Maybe unnoticed until there is you . . .

Mari said...

The one in the trees looks like it has some character. If only we could see it!

Chatty Crone said...

I might have missed that last one - especially at 70 mph! sandie

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I would have missed the last one too--But curious about what was in the first one.

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I love that hidden one!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

They can't hide from your sharp eyes and camera though. Your barn shots always make me feel as if I'm on a road-trip; when we were traveling I loved spotting them.

Randy said...

I like that last shot. They must get hot in the summer months.

Michael Manning said...

As a kid riding in my parents' car, I'd see these scenes and wonder who lived on this farm? Always special photos to cause us to stop and ponder. Nice! : )

Kerry said...

Your text is like a little poem. Very nice.

petspeopleandlife said...

Had a nice comment written but forgot to publish. Second barn is very rustic.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love the one trying to hide among the trees! Even when I'm driving I usually have one eye out for barns! It's sad how many I've passed by without an opportunity to get a shot.
Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Jane said...

Been away for awhile from blogging. Is this photo about finding a house or barn that is most hidden? Or that people just don't seem to notice what they should be while driving along a lonely hwy?
At any rate, fun to see your blog again, and I like your new side photo of YOU!

Elaine said...

You're right, most people probably see neither barn. I am always intrigued by those tucked back in the trees, keeping their secrets closely guarded.

Stewart M said...

The "free-way" barn looks a bit soulless!

The weekend was good, but I'm glad we don't do it every weekend!

Cheers - Stewart M - Australia

Janey and Co. said...

I too would have seen them! Love the scenery going down the road!

eileeninmd said...

Now, they are out there for all of us to see, great barns! My favorite is the last one by the trees.

Candy C. said...

Unnoticed by all EXCEPT those of us needing a good picture for Barn Charm Tuesday!! LOL!!

Montanagirl said...

So close to the highway! You're right: no place to hide.

Small City Scenes said...

Yep, I see too many barns that were secluded at one time and now are right butted up to a high way or even the freeway. I posted one poor sad barn like that and it was for sale. I guess the property was what was for sale. Pretty sad I think. I wish we could hear all it's stories. MB

laura.forestdreams:) said...

great shots!!

i don't think they'd go unnoticed by me either!

(i usually notice everything in the big great outdoors...it's things like blogger headers i don't notice too well!!) haha

Paula said...

Well, I for one would have never even noticed that last one!! (haha)

pattisjarrett said...

That's probably true.
