Country Archi-Texture

Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

~*~

As someone who spends a lot of time on the farm with my horse my eye is often caught by the textures of the country.

(My title’s a bit off-the-wall but playing with words is my thing.)

Herewith a few interpretations for your viewing pleasure …

I love the many textures of the countryside. I expect that’s why I spend so much time there.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time here with me …

Naughty Jerome and the Bank Barn

Winter Scene

~*~

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.

Sad …

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.

Happy!

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 …

Dorothy 🙂
