another old barn...

"Barns are landmarks,
the symbols of rural life that spark our curiosity
and fan the flames of the American spirit."

-Laura Brooks, "American Landmarks: The Barn"

This is another old barn I passed a few weeks ago. Red, like most of the barns in the Midwest,
and with one lightning rod leaning a bit, it's still standing strong and put to good use on a nearby farm...
that always makes me smile.

After I placed the photo, I noticed a little "halo" over the barn...see it?
It's not a special effect I added, it just appeared when I dropped the photo in place.
Seems like a sign to me...yes, in my mind, barns are heavenly.


  1. I love barns, too, especially old ones. Yes, I did see the halo!

  2. I never get tired of looking at red barns! Richard

  3. These barns are a dying breed , I would like to see more red barns here thats for sure. Lovely photo ! Have a good day !

  4. I am a big fan of big old barns myself. There are a lot of 100 year old barns around us on the big wheat farms. There is something peaceful about those old pieces of history. I see the halo.
