Still Standing!

I first saw this barn 16 years ago when we first moved to Idaho. I go past it a couple of times a year on the way to McCall Idaho, north of Boise. I keep thinking one of these times it will simply be a pile of firewood in the middle of the pasture.

    1. Thank you for your comment. It is sad to see barns fall into disrepair all over the country side.

  2. A wonderful image... I wouldn't try to have a look inside.

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog. It is several hundred feet off of Highway 55 behind a fence. Even if it was not, I do not think I would attempt to look in side, who know what you might find.

  3. Thats a great picture - I'd be tempted to do a series of weather or seasons shots based around that building if it was down my way.

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog. I have made numerous attempts to photograph this barn, but there is not a real safe place to pull over, and it is about 2 hours away from where I live.

      Have a good day.

  4. Great picture!! It's a wonder it's still standing, looks like the first big wind would blow it right down.

    1. Thank you for your comment. When I first saw this thing in the winter of 1997, I figured it to be gone by that summer. If you look at the roof and the remaining structure it actually is not in that bad of shape. I suspect that someone hit the corner with a piece of farm equipment.

      I was going to put on Barn charm, but I searched high & low for the linky, was unable to find it anywhere.

  5. Wow - that's an amazing shot. I wonder what happened to it.

  6. If you look at the roof, I think it was not in that bad of shape. I suspect the the corner must have been hit by a combine or something.

  7. Amazing that it is still standing. Great capture of this slowly twisting pile of barn wood.

  8. Standing? Nah, I think it's kneeling down on one knee fixing to propose to the earth! Poor thing....

  9. Wonderful shot! Makes me think of "I've fallen and I can't get up." It does appear to be in pretty good shape on the part that is still standing.

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog. I am going back up to McCall in a few weeks, if I can find a safe place to stop I may take more pictures with my new better camera.

  11. Too many of these old barns are neglected & collapsing... I'd love to see more saved, but, they do make for great subject for our barn shots!

    So glad you joined =)

    1. Thank you for hosting this site. I never imagined that a 2 year old photo would have such positive feedback.

  12. It is a beautiful and serene spot. Seeing this leaning barn somehow made me think of a horse preparing to lie down when it bends its front legs.

  13. That is a description that I had not thought of. With all of the comments and descriptions I will never see this barn in the same way when I head north. Thank you for visiting my blog, and thank you for following.

  14. Sad to see this beauty go down like this.
    I am thinking that the wood would make some nice frames for some of my barn pictures.

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog. It is a truly unusual site to see It is in a very bad spot to stop. Not much shoulder and a busy two lane highway.
