Photographing old buildings like barns needs an element of context - what is the setting, what is around the structure, what else can be included to tell a story in the image. Other than straight architectural imaging a good building photograph gives the viewer something to explore and think about.
Sometimes the whole structure isn't actually needed as there are interesting compositions to be made using just a small portion of what you see in front of you. I like to explore these details after working on the whole building, and sometimes while working on these more intimate images I find aspects of the building I'd simply missed. Textures, shapes, colors, etc. are all around us if we just pay attention.
