winding roads

life has slowed down this autumn and i've been happy to have time to meander and explore. i love to find new routes and byways, places and roads that i've only heard of or seen squiggled on a map. four times this week, i passed this barn, and the last time pulled over to photograph it. i love the symmetry of the windows, the angles of the roof lines, and the colors, still rich despite their age. the on-point window on the back section makes the whole scene a little quirky. and my eyes kept being drawn down to the vivid marigolds by the sliding door, still in bloom in late fall. to my blogging friend who loves barns - and you know who you are - thanks for the inspiration!

Well this is a beauty Chris...so I'm thinking you were referring to me..."the one who loves barns"?? :) Yup pretty sure that's me and I do. Where we live and where you live we are lucky to still have a plentiful assortment of old and new barns and I never, never, never, tire of seeing yet another beautiful barn and capturing it in my camera. Thank you for sharing your lovely photo. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs
