The Barn Collective

We went for a ride this afternoon. Thought we might catch a glimpse of the hot air balloons in Dansville, but, in spite of the beautiful day and the Festival of Balloons..., there was not a basket in the sky. Launch times are 6 am and 6 pm. We opted not to wait 4 hours.

While we were out, we took a drive to find Uncle Joe's farm in Caneadea. The farm was still there but the barn was hidden behind trees. So sad. Ah, well. I can still see Sally Sue calling "Here, chick, chick!" as she threw feed in the driveway.

Down the road a short distance, we found an old barn that made for some nice pictures.

One day I'd like to find a barn I can go inside of and take pictures. I'm hoping for fresh hay, chickens in the hay mow, a litter of kittens, and some cows. Oh, wait. That would have been Uncle Joe's...

More barns at Tom's Barn Collective.


  1. Nice captures! They look in good shape and well cared for. Is that a wooden water tower?

    1. That is a silo for storing grain, and this barn is sadly falling down. The good side faces the road. I took my photos through the holes in the side, but I love being able to see the ladders going up.

    2. At least I think it's just a silo...

  2. What a treat to find the old barn along a quiet country road! I enjoyed your photos!

  3. These are some great photos. The silo does look unusual.

  4. I like the flag on the barn
    Have a great week!

  5. You went to great barn hunting country. I love it down there. Thanks for sharing these Alleghany County scenes. Hurry on back!
