Collapsing barn

This barn is across the railroad track from the store featured yesterday. It is actually in the backyard of a fairly old but still occupied former farmhouse. It is on a corner intersection of a developing area, and both will probably be razed in favor or a Walgreens or a mini-mart within not too many years.

The muted colors are pretty much straight from the camera.

I like your composition with just the roof that emerges. It needs some work but I like the old barns. Thank you comment me here :
