Hello Michael, this is for me an excellent capture/image .... the kind of thing I love to capture too. Old building, dusty pathway, the fence and all the other bits that make it great. A really lovely shot!
Thanks for popping by my blog and the follow too!

The long wooden boards and the bushy vine are a nice contrast. This sort of scene is really better in monochrome than color.

What should a photographer of monochromes do without all the fine, old buildings standing around? :-)

Robin said...

What a great vine, filigree indeed. Love the shot.

Great old barn; this is what we Brits think of as the 'west'.

This old barn is quite photogenic! What a beautiful composition you captured! I love the dark and light contrast...glorious black and white.

I love the shape of the barn and those wonderful twiggy shadows. Perfect.

That's a grand old barn. It always comforts me to see pictures of them and to know some are still around.

a good study in contrasts. the barn comes off looking as super photogenic though i imagine at close range it wont look so romantic :)

I like it Michael. Very carefully composed and the contrasts are nice. Barn does need a haircut eh.

This is a lovely photo in B&W. Very crispy. Great composition.

It's very eerie. I see so many strong red bold images to see in mono adds a whole new meaning to the image.

What a lovely old barn, I really like the vine is slowly covering the structure. Great shot.

Great shot Michael.Lovely old barn.fine lines are still vivid. I wonder how it will look like if all the vines covers the whole barn.
