    BTW, I’ve been loving these groups you’ve been doing: barns, doorways, etc. Really a great “look-back” on common themes in your work!

    • I wanted to shake up my posting schedule starting with the first of the year, and I just stumbled across this idea. I’ve got posts like this scheduled through the end of May already. I’m starting to run out of ideas, though.

    Jim, I too love old barns. Unfortunately near me more and more of the old wooden barns are falling into disrepair and collapsing. What a shame.

  3. Shirley B. says:

    Love the barns! I’m on the other side of the Atlantic, but looking at these photos, I’m travelling. Thanks!

  4. Pete says:

    I love these U.S. barns with their architectural diversity. Here in the UK they are usually basic open sheds with a few exception.

  5. I love this record of old barns. Well done. I am especially interested in round or 12 sided barns, which were a vibrant experiment in the early 1900s. I’ve seen a few around the country and try to photograph them whenever I can. There is a round barn in Champaign, IL, used as a BBQ restaurant.

  6. Theron says:

    A few years back we visited Michigan on a boy scout trip. I drove down to Saginaw to pick up another scout dad at the airport who came in a few days late. Long story short, he had many delays in connecting flights, and I drove around the outskirts of Saginaw photographing barns. I was amazed by the quantity and variety, as I always thought of Michigan as more industrial than agricultural.

    Travel changes old ideas and perceptions, for sure.

  7. Some lovely barns and great images. I don’t know what it is about farmers, but some seem to do no maintenance at all to their farm buildings after they are built. Farm buildings here often come in the form of woolsheds, for shearing and handling sheep. There are some wonderful old heritage ones still in use, but the more modern ones are often quite utilitarian, perhaps they will seem more charming to future generations!

    • Sheep aren’t so much a thing here in the midwestern United States. I know one fellow who raises them but it’s a specialty thing. It was surprising and delightful to see sheep absolutely everywhere when we were in Ireland.
