The Barn With The Blue Doors

We drove past this place while we were out strawberry picking last weekend in the Lanaudiere region north of Montréal.


It’s hard not to notice a weathered old barn with a tin roof and some lovely blue doors, so I just had to double back and snap a few shots.



It made me think that I need to go barn hunting a little more often, and oh yes the strawberries were delicious 🙂

    I enjoyed this serene scene and am happy I am catching up with posts I missed or didn’t have time to comment on, Norm.
    I love barns and pastoral settings so this gets a very high rating in my mind! 🙂

    I always love a blue door but this barn is so cute too 💕💕 Strawberries are at their best in Finland, I just froze 50 kg for the winter with the help of my mom and FIL 🙌

    The blue doors. Clean and simple. I also like the barns with the bushes and tilled land. Nice variety.

    Norm isn’t that something with it’s accent colour? Love the flaming red cart as well. That was well worth turning back for!

      Thanks Sue. It was worth it. In fact I make go back when there’s better light conditions just to try recomposing to feature that red wheel barrow a little more prominently


  9. Great barn! I like the rusty tin roof with those blue doors too. I would have turned around too. 🙂

  11. great capture. rare blue find. 🙂

    there are definitely some great barns around me, but i’m going to have to deal with my social anxiety about asking for permission, since most of them require going onto the property to get a proper shot. one of those facets of what it takes to be a good photographer that have nothing to do with knowing how a camera works. 😉

  16. They look like they could be in a children’s storybook. The Barn Family with Mama, Papa and the little red-headed offspring to the side. Great shot, Norm and I love those blue doors.

    How ever do you find such wonderful places? I would love to know the story of how the doors became blue. I am glad you gave us three photos. I really loved your close up, and the distance photos to give me a sense of the setting. I didn’t not realize at first that both barns had the blue doors. That makes them even more special.

      Thanks Carol. After a while of photographing a specific subject you sort of become attuned to it. I notice interesting doors everywhere I go these days. I just have to remember to bring my camera with me everywhere too 😉

    I love the blue doors Norm. That barn tells a story. It looks to have grown over time. The grounds around it look to be in wonderful condition. It seems like it would be a good place to spend some time.

  22. Best barn doors ever. Someone cares enough to keep the doors and hardware updated and everything looks so neat. Perfect doors for this county woman, and I love fresh strawberries too. 🙂

      Thanks Judy. We were out scouring the countryside for more barn doors and strawberries yesterday too. It was a fruitful outing on both fronts.
      Have a safe and fun long weekend 🙂

    I love these blue doors Norm. Barns always seem to have an aura of history about them. You will have to search for more.
