I’m still not sure what the attraction that I have with barns is all about but I love to photograph them. I think they are such interesting buildings and there is a part of me that wants to get to know more about them and the other part that is just content to take a few images and move on. Maybe it is because I spent a fair amount of my teenage life in one of these barns. No I don’t mean that way. 🙂 I mean working in the hay fields I always seemed to be one of the guys that got sent to the hay loft.
This is one of my favorite barns to photograph. It still has a shingled roof and wood structure. I don’t like to photograph these type of barns with a metal roof. Having said that don’t immediately look at the second image in this post. This old barn is on the way to Cedar Rapids so I get to see it a few times a year. I’m always tempted to stop and make an image and this time was no exception. The barn was lit by some soft golden light so it was doubly tempting.
I don’t really classify this as a barn as much as I would call it a machine shed. Still it sets at the top of a hill and usually has a grain wagon or two parked around it. I was drawn to this image because of the setting sun and I just like the looks of this old building.
I’m thrilled that it is finally Friday. Even though technically we only had a 4 day work week, there was a lot of traveling and preparation for the week so I’m glad it is over.
I am really looking forward to Josh’s big birthday bash. Hopefully I can capture some of the fun. Jeanne said that he is all excited about his birthday but thinks there is a parade associated with it. 🙂 Perhaps some day my little grandson. Perhaps some day there will be.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Friday. Watch for the deer and be careful.
