Not just ANY old barn door, but the one from the farm I grew up on. I recently went back for a visit.

Hi Karen
You have captured some wonderful line and texture here. It's hard to see the old places falling into disrepair.

Hi Karen,
you could have taken some paint & paintbrushes with you:)
You certainly have captured the deteriation & textures well.
I think a close up of that wired framed window would also work
for another image.

Hello Karen
Yesteryears a refuge when you were playing "hideout" with your brothers and sisters and nowadays a sanctuary for the ghosts of your ancestors!
How sweet it must have been to recall your chilhood!
Best regards and thanks for your kind words.

Hello Karen,I like the composition of this shot,so we can concentrate on the old,faded and warped pieces of wood.Plus the inclusion of the window and the rusty hinges.
Is the farm still worked?
Good colour and sharpness.
Tfs, regards Jean.
