Barn Thoughts

I like to play with various effects on my Android camera phone. Here's the home place barn with some color alterations that play with our sense of what a barn is. There's more purple here than any barn I have ever seen and the grass is not this green. Not yet. Not now.

While driving back and forth from Fond Du Lac to the farm last week I realized that my eye seeks out buildings like barns and churches. Unfortunately very few of these buildings with slender, majestic steeples and solid, lasting siloes are being constructed now. We are losing the landmark qualities that are so characteristic of older architecture.
