Anytime you are traveling through the countryside, pause a moment and notice one of the monoliths known as a barn. Most of them handcrafted a century or more ago, they are quite often held together with wooden pins and huge, hand hewn beams. Each one unique and historic.
These huge, sometimes craggy, sometimes svelte buildings make my eyes happy!
These are all located in Ontario, Canada
All gray and gloomy, this old soldier is simply falling in.
This barn would likely have been an implement barn.
A very typical example of an Ontario Barn.
Still in fair repair with cement silos.
What's in there? If you look closely, you'll still see remnants of the equipment for the elevators to attach to for loading the silage into the silos!
(Silage is fermented field corn that is chopped and fed to cattle)
The open doorways and windows behind the overgrown weeds and bushes. I love the way the planks were never painted.
Oh! What secrets lie behind those walls?
