Two For the Price of One


Juxtaposition - an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.  





Out for an afternoon drive yesterday, I was lucky enough to come upon this falling-down beauty.  Then, I realized her new counterpart was sitting right beside her.  

The old and the new.....personally I prefer the old, but I realize she cannot perform her duties like she used to.  



"Do not let a flattering woman coax and wheedle you and deceive you;  she is after your barn."  

Hesiod 


Linking up with Tom and Mersad today....

  6. The oldie is a beauty, but the newer counterpart can be best described as "newer." Thanks for sharing this lovely scene, I wonder how long it will remain standing. I hope that you will return with more gems from "It's a Small Town Life."

  7. I think it's neat they have both as long as the old one isn't in danger of falling down on someone! What a fun quote! Thanks for the neat card!!

  17. I guess it gives easy access - if you need to replace a board on the new, maybe you can just walk over to find a decent one on the old!

  18. You got both in one frame.
    Like what Hesiod said.

  19. I would be worried that the old one would fall on the new one. But that's just how I worry or think!

  22. Old barns, a window to the past, aren't they? I like this reminder of change--and nice to know the farm continues. So many are going away.

  23. Well yes as long as varmits haven't moved into the old one...:)

  24. Such charm the old barn brings to the landscape . . .
    I am sure the new barn will add more protection . . .
    I wonder if they will take down the "old beauty."

    ReplyDelete
  25. I still would prefer the old one :) Have a great day!
