The Barn Collective #25

Somewhere near Columbia, Tennessee, U. S. A.

(I am trying a new script this week in hopes that trouble for some in fetching thumbnails is resolved.  I am away from my main computer and will probably not be able to help with any issues that may arise for a few days.  Thanks for your patience!)

The Barn Collective #24

These were taken from I-65 in Franklin, Tennessee, hence, the blurriness.  Beautiful farms are everywhere in middle Tennessee.  And yes, this one has Buffalo (or Bison, are they the same?)  The Buffalo are in front of two large mansions on rolling hills.  I have never found out for certain if they belong to famous country music stars or actresses, but it has been said . . . .

A friend and I went to a photography event a few weeks ago.  The field trip we went on was to an abandoned site of a pioneer village type attraction.  I got a few interesting shots.  There were several items that didn't quite fit into the classic pioneer time frame.  I suppose it depends on what you are pioneering.

That front piece of stereo equipment was Quasar, not even Pioneer.

The Barn Collective #23

Whoo.  I've lost my motivation to get out and work on my barn collection, so I'm cheating a little.  
This painting was done by my Mother several years ago.  She does quite well, and rural scenes are her favorite, so you may be seeing more of her work.  
This is one of my favorites.  It has it all:  red barn, dirt road, fence, big tree, round bales, summer green, yellow wildflowers, distant mountains, and blue sky.

Looking forward to seeing your barns, sheds, silos, etc.!

The Barn Collective #22

This was taken in January 2011 when north Alabama had a foot of snow.  I think we measured 9 inches at our place.  The barn belongs to my mother, but is adjacent to our property.  That is my hubby on the tractor.  I rarely use artsy treatments now and could not tell you what I did to this shot.

We have had a snow and/or ice storm each of the last three weeks here, but I only got a couple of iPhone shots just for the record.  The past week's winter storm was all ice and sleet and stayed around for longer than one day.  I like a snow or two every winter, but three in a row is too much.  I don't see how you folks up north stand it for months at a time.

We are supposed to be in the upper sixties next week with rain.  I hate to complain, but that's getting kinda warm for me.  We go from one extreme to another.

A few that need some attention.
