We've been enjoying some fascinating adventures in our quest for barns, haven't we? Not wanting to miss out on the action, I asked my
Now, I should tell you that we live in an area that is mostly rural so barns are in abundance all around us. The trick is getting access to the barns because most of them are quite far out in the fields, well away from the roads. But we had some success and a hundred miles and several hours later, I had about 125 barn photos. Relax! I'm only going to share a few.
In Kentucky, the barns range from utilitarian, as you see here -
To this -
And, finally, THIS -
(yes ... this is a horse barn)
And they can be even more elaborate than what you see here but I didn't have access to the famous thoroughbred farms, where famous race horses have been bred. If you've never been to central Kentucky, you're missing something unique, the horse farms are over the top beautiful. And horse barns, well, they never cease to fascinate and amaze me.
We've had a lot of fun this month going "in search of barns" and I have been astonished by the barns you've been sharing on the FOL Flickr page. Although I'm more of a macro kind of gal, your images have challenged me to continue my quest for barns long after this month is past. After all, that's what photography is all about - finding beauty where we are.
We're heading into the home stretch this week on this theme so let's see if we can outdo ourselves. Please continue to post your fabulous barns on our Flickr page. And, of course, remember Linda's linky party. I can't wait to see your stories!
