Mellow Yellow Trespasser



I spent some time this weekend taking macro shots.  I have so many critter shots, time to change things up.  I thought the above photo came out pretty good without any editing.  Not great but something about it makes me feel good.  Maybe it's the color yellow.  Such a happy color!

Mellows me out
and
makes me smile.

~sharing with~

I also trespassed this weekend.
Down a back road where I walk
an old barn sits.
Abandoned.  Alone.
Signs posted 'KEEP OUT'.
But how could I.
An old dairy barn.
A place that still holds beauty.
Remnants of a life past.







Hope the weekend was good to you!  

Okay, maybe one critter shot.
~smile~

Love you photos, Reena! Love the intensity of the colors, the look back into the past with the abandoned barn! Yes! How could you not photograph it?? Superb! Hope you have a wonderful week!

LOVE the interior shots! i don't want to encourage this type of activity though, 'cuz i can't afford to bail you out of jail.

Very nice. A treat to see the inside (and the outside) of an old dairy farm. Great pictures. Including the softened yellow flower and lovely little bird.

Ooohhh treading dangerously to get the shot, very NatGeo. Love it!!! I have been so lazy, didn't take one pic all weekend, I have to find another picture a day project to join.
Nice critter... you can't get too many critter shots :)

I love the interior shot of the barn. The colors are dreamy! As for those macros...there's a party waiting for them! ;-)

Ashley Sisk said...

I love this abandoned barn - it'd make for great portraits!

lisa said...

What wonderful photographs these are Reena! I just love the yellow flower. Yellow just makes me feel sunny, and I love the wonderful softness of this one.

Sure glad I am not the only one who trespasses for the sake of a shot. So far, I haven't had anyone get angry with me, but I have a feeling that one of these days...

Thank you so much for sharing all of these today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a great day!

Good possibility it's the yellow, plus, daisies are the happiest flower... Meg Ryan says so in You've Got Mail. =)

I LOVE THE BARN! Do you mind if I come back this evening & link it up to Barn Charm? It's gorgeous & we rarely ever get to see the inside of these old barns... it's a MUST SEE for everyone! =)

Daryl said...

Trespass? What means this? In search for photo blog fodder is not trespassing ... nah .. its not.. and that little bird? I espied one just like that in Birmingham but it never stayed still long enough to get a shot .. huurrumph

elizabeth said...

well your flower mellowed me out and put a smile on my face too!! But I must admit the old barn put a bigger smile on my face!! I love old buildings!! And I don't much listen to signs either!1

I LOVE your barn shots! They are wonderful.

deb duty said...

I agree yellow is such a happy color! So glad you trespassed. Those barn shots are fabulous. Looks like a fun place to explore.

Jane said...

I love your macro shot - the in and out of focus and softness gives it a feeling of movement which I really like. I also love the photos of the inside of the old dairy barn, just beautiful. Well worth a little trespassing to capture :-)

Snappy Di said...

Nice! Sometimes it pays off to trespass a little tiny bit. :-) Until you hear sirens... then RUN!!

Anika said...

Oooo, love the barn-beautiful and I can see why you couldn't resist the inside either. Beauties!

Just BeAuTiFuL for the Creative Exchange!!

Evelyn S. said...

Yes, the yellow daisy(?) is a happy image...as is the vibrant goldfinch! And the barn is a fabulous place of past usefulness. Dairy stanchions...I haven't seen them in so many years.

Always something haunting about derelict buildings.
What splendid photos here.

The gold flower was a stunner.

Your photos are the greatest! I grew up where there are many old houses and barn from long ago.When I enter them I feel like the souls of the people who dwelled there still linger.

Smiles, Dottie

The macro shot is wonderful. Love the interior of the barn. Worth a little trespassing, I say.

Bright, happy yellow flower; dark, decaying barn; and a critter! You've covered it all! Great photos!

Tricia ♥Barn Charmer♥ said...

You submitted it to Barn Charm! Thank you thank you! I sometimes get overly excited when it comes to Barn Charm, but I just can't help myself.
I was going to link it up last night, but was busy w/ something & didn't make it til just now. =0
Thanks again, Reena! =)

Anna said...

Macros are so fun to take and yes, the yellow is uplifting! My favorite is the last barn interior shot. That one is wonderful in it's captured mood and light!!!

Genie said...

Your barn represents the condition of so many of the barns in our neck of the woods. It is so sad, but they all still have wonderful stories to tell and have oddness of personality. Thanks for becoming a follower...when someone new comes on board to support me in this endeavor of mine, it warms my heart. Doubt I will ever get to 109, but as of today you are up to 110. Hugs, Genie

Elaine said...

I love the barn shots, especially from the inside looking out.

PJ said...

Beautiful photos!

The flower is so happy. Itʻs like a droplet fell from on high and splashed sunshine from the center out.

The barn is simply wonderful. Think of all the activity it saw back in the day. Iʻll bet you almost hear the history of it while you were there.
