Barns!


 An Ohio Barn
Taken in February.
We always go to Florida by cutting over and by going down highway 250, through the state of Ohio. This is a magnificent barn that we always pass and I just had to get Dick to pull over and take pictures. He does a good job too!


 Just absolutely Gi-Normous and so white! We have noticed that most of the barns in Ohio seem to be painted white with black roofs. Most of them are this shape, but not so many so big!


The roof style is called 'hip" and I always marvel at all the windows with the muttons. To add those dormer windows would have cost a nickel or two!



Something we don't often have up here in Ontario is this style of foundation. I think it's red clay blocks.
The other difference is that the boards are horizontal and not vertical like ours are.


So Perfectly framed in the Magnum's window!

All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.

Since I live in Ohio I thought maybe I'd recognize the barn, but I don't. I have been on sections of 250 but not all of it. There is a lot of barns around with that brick foundation at the bottom even where I live.

I love this road trip. It's fun to join you on the back roads of the country. And this barn is definitely worth a gander.

Hi Lucy, I got your comment on my other blog, and I went to see if I could write to you directly, but I don't seem to be able to -- if you would send me your email (mine is available on my profile), I'd like to comment privately. Big hugs to you, BTW. You are also a brave and strong woman!!
