Sunday Stills Challenge~Best photos 2009

While the red barn of my youth is still my favorite, I combed through my photos to find two different barns or ranches. The bottom one is what I call the "red ranch" which is actually located in Palm Desert, CA! YES! A ranch here in my home town! While it doesn't have a spectacular barn, I love driving by the ranch house. It is in a state of...disrepair...and I'm sure it is scheduled to be torn down, so I try to stop by it every now and then. I like this photo because it shows its "disrepair". At one time, I'm sure it was a lively, thriving ranch. Now, only the wind whispers in its empty shell. Very sad. The top one is a barn near Bridgeport, California. It IS a working ranch and barn and hubby and I stopped there in June, when the fields were blooming. One sad, vacant ranch and another one which is alive and vibrant! Sunday Stills Challenge for January 10, 2010.


  1. Interesting barns, especially the one from Palm Desert.

  2. I love that you are doing this! I wished more people appreciated what is "old". I know it takes moeney to renovate though. I like the windows in the barn in your header. thanks for photographing these barns.
