Love the pictures and the way you have added the textures. I love old barns, so will pop over to Tricia at Barn Charm.

Have a good day. Jackie in Surrey, UK.

I, too, love these textures you've applied to this magnificent barn, Sally. You've given me some good ideas for next week. :)

Rose said...

Oh this barn was such a fine one when it was new....it looks to have been built good enough to live in.

Lovely shots of a great building, I hate to see such fine structures abandoned and left to deteriorate, although the looks of them is very wonderful! Nice, Lisa!

I agree a little TLC can make wonder with this barn. You have an awesome photo here.

I love how you took the different shots of the side of the barn & put them in a collage... I never think of doing creative things like that! =)

This barn is magnificent & I love the textures you've used, too. I'd have never thought to use the brick... it looks great!

Thanks a ton for joining... much appreciated! =)

I love these barn shots! What textures did you use??

debi said...

Great shots (and editing) of a subject full of character.

Sall's Country Life said...

Thanks for the nice comments all!

@Wife/Dairyman: The top barn pic was done with Picnik and one of their brick textures...the bottom one was done with photoshop and I think I used one of Kim Klassen's textures. Sometimes I get to playing around and forget what I'm doing and where I've been! Ha!

Those are awesome, Sally! Beautiful shots! I enjoy looking at photos of old barns. You and Nancy have a knack for capturing them!

barb said...

Can't you just see the sheep, cows or horses in that old barn? I never see any pigs in your shots?

Great barn and love the textures.

dogsmom said...

I have not learned to use textures yet. From these hops I am seeing such interesting results.

This is a fine old building. I hope someone can give it the TLC it needs.

Carletta said...

Many old barns just need a little TLC. :)
I love all of your wonderful images. I have a thing for peeling paint.
Your processing work is lovely!
