Bright, Red Barn




A bright, red barn today for Tom's Barn Collective.  I pass this small structure at least once a week, on my way to the grocery.  Some of my best photos have been taken on this weekly jaunt.  I cut through some back roads to make it to the neighboring town.  Passing all sorts of homes, farms, pastures, animals, etc.....

Best views on a grocery trip, ever.  


"Mommy smoked, but she didn't want us to.  She saw smoke coming out of the barn one time, so we all got whipped."

    1. Anni, the sky was gray and gloomy the day I took this shot. I did some, "creative editing", on this photo!

  5. I like your barn photo.
    The back roads are almost always more interesting than the highways!

  7. Such a beautiful barn! Most of the barns in our area are white, but once in a while we see a nice red one!

  21. Love the old barns - will be posting some Vermont barns in the next day or two... We have some around here, but not quite as many as we see up North further. I want to save them all.

  25. When I cam to live on the country side 1 1/2 years ago, I assumed that I would see a lot of red barns - not!Many here in my neck of the woods are metal or the instant kind (and even then, still not red). So, I love this capture!
