Barn Charm in Buffalo, MO

Photobucket
Barn found on the trip to Springfield, MO last week near Buffalo, MO. There was an older woman, like me :D, on a lawn tractor mowing while I was snapping pictures. She gave me a big wave and smiled and I thought dang she is friendly. After I popped back in our vehicle and drove down the road a bit CH said she had a sign in her yard that said “Buffalo Yard of the Month”. I had to laugh, she probably thought I was out there taking pictures for the “big” Buffalo paper! She is probably looking for them πŸ™‚ It is a beautiful yard. This picture is straight out of camera.

This is a shot of the same barn, different side, different angle. I played with this picture in Photoshop Elements 9 using Kim Klassen’s texture “Paper Stained”. Dang, so much to learn!

Photobucket
I wanted to share this picture because thanks to Cheryl at The Farmer’s Daughter’s blog I played with this picture in iPiccy and WooHoo do I love this editing site. Do a happy dance people and get on over there if you love to play with pictures! Thank you Cheryl for telling us about this site! The only thing is I haven’t figured out how to size in iPiccy correctly yet and I like the font I use for my pictures from Photobucket so I had to take the edited picture to Photobucket and size and do the font. So I hope iPiccy doesn’t come after me! Off to “The Mama’s” today for lunch!

Linking up to Tricia’s Barn Charm!

  3. A very classic and classy looking barn! I can see how the place was awarded “Yard of the month.” People are usually pretty friendly when OI take photos of their barns too!

  7. I am going to try the site and play with some pictures. The trees actually speak to me the most in the last 2 pictures. They look like guardians of the barn!

    1. Hey Christina! Whoa! I think those trees are protectors of the barn too πŸ™‚ I fell in love with those trees when I loaded the pictures to the computer and then really loved them after the processing. iPiccy is so much fun but I have some things to figure out, like where in the dang heck are my pictures when I save them and how do I size them? I gots questions.

  8. That’s a GREAT barn……Barns just plain NEED some rust – somewhere – anywhere – even if they’re freshly painted a barn needs a rusty farm implement out front or a rusty light fixture or something. Just seems like a natural “pairing” ! I laughed at the old lady/lawn tractor thing because if you’d been in my neck of the woods today you could have driven by MY house and seen an old lady on a tractor too – I mowed the lawn today. The “paper stained” finish REALLY makes the pictures look like they’re oil paintings. Love that!

    1. Hi Pam (with Sam)! Rust is good, when it comes to charming barns, you are so right! Every time I think about that older, you know, mature lady on the lawn tractor I crack up. She was just smiling and waving πŸ˜† I beg off when it comes to riding the lawn tractor, it hurts my gas pedal leg! Thank you on the editing.

  13. What a great old barn. You certainly honored it well in bringing forth the sense of nostalgia and history that it’s surely seen. You have a good inner eye and do a wonderful job of expressing what you see.
    I hope you had a lovely lunch with The Mama. πŸ™‚
