I love old bank barns.
There’s nothing that evokes the feeling of country to me more than a big, old barn.
Creeping development in the rural areas around here means most of these lovely buildings are being demolished. Beautiful, rolling farmland is being homogenized into ugly subdivisions.
Still, as it happens, the farm where I moved my horse last week has just such a century bank barn. Since there is a moratorium on development in that area for the next 25 years, this barn is safe for a while.
I’m almost giddy with excitement at the photographic opportunities to be had here as the seasons unfold.
This week before the bitter cold blew through I captured this moment.
Naughty Jerome just happened to be standing about and curious about my activity. His blue blanket offers a hint of colour to an otherwise stark winter scene.
Needless to say there will be more images of this lovely old farm building in future posts.
Thanks for visiting …
