Ruby Tuesday #40: "Rainbow Barn"


"Barn on Yates Mill Pond Rd"
Raleigh, NC - January 2009 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at

I spotted this two-fer shot on the way to the release of a rehabilitated red-tail hawk. Fitting that I should come across a partially painted red barn with a red tractor parked inside.Violence UnSilenced

In an odd quirk of scheduling I have this same barn from two different angles featured on the same day.

Does that make me the Monet of Memes?

Nah. Just a cosmic coincidence.

A classic scene at work here. The tractor is the classic Farmall red, the barn is a faded red, and the whole scene the classic small farm!

Beautiful shot and the colors are so moody. Happy RT.

Lucky you to find all that red in one place, if you are looking for a Ruby Tuesday photo! And aren't we all?

Happy RT!

Is that a mural painted on the barn?

There is soooo much character in this photograph. Very nicely done, and there's Ruby Red to boot.

So many red tools, instruments, machine, painting and finally the multi-red barn including bricks, gutter and old beam.
Beautiful and skilled composition.

Think i will call it "Ruby Barn" instead since it has so many red items. :)

Happy RT!

1/2 painted, but it has given a class of it's own.
I've got a strong hunch that the piece of machinery attracted to you more than that rainbow :P

Amazing how many barns are red. I wonder why that is!

Classic North Carolina country. Love it!!

What a wonderful photo. It looks like a painting -- very Rockwell Americana.

And on your way to release a RED tailed hawk...how appropriate.

This barn seemed to be readily at hand (excuse the pun!)did you get any shots of the hawk?

Love the barn and the reds, but the polar bear has to take the prize for original. :))
