The Yellow Barn

click to enlarge

I spotted this unique yellow barn in the wilds of Wisconsin this Fall. Who does the creatively colorblind farm owner think he is? We all know that barns are supposed to be red by default. Good grief! The innovative gall of some people. I of course had to stop for a sunny yellow photo op.  I'm letting this photo stand alone this week. But that's not to say that the birds in it are standing alone. Do you see them? There are at least 8 ugly critters in it. They're lurking on the silo too!

Please don't click to enlarge. It's blurry and has hideous birds in it. Ha!


Here's a hint. There was road kill near by...

 Please don't forget to stop by my new writing blog The Chorus of the Crows for some Ordinary Inspiration this week. And a big thank you to the folks that dropped by already and made my first week a lot less cyber lonely.

Hello Sharon, its that really yellow paint or maybe lichen growing on the barn. Great captures of the vultures and the barn! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

They may be ugly, but they have an important job to do. Enjoy your weekend!

Unique!
You should add this to The Barn Collective meme on Sunday.

I really like the green and yellow combination! :)

Anni said...

I agree. Vultures are hideous looking at first sight, but they are what our environment needs to clean up after such things as road kill.

Laughed at your comments about the yellow barn and color blind farmer.

Well, fortunately all that yellow is almost worn off. Vultures! What inelegant creatures. :-)

I love the yellow barn! Imagine how that looked back in the day with the green silo and the red roof. Hysterical :D

definitely colorful.

Great barn! I love yellow ones, and they are so few & far between. It needs a good painting!

Stephanie said...

Looks like weathered wood. Beautiful shots!

Nice shot - and I think the vultures would be an acquired taste!

Keep moving .... The buzzards might think ....;)))! A yellow barn is a bit quirky, but I like quirky!

Beth F said...

Nice capture!

Rose said...

It is a beauty, but never seen but one barn that color yellow and we saw it just this past summer. I would not have noticed the buzzards if you had not pointed them out. Maybe it am not yet wide awake.
