Still Standing

They don't make them like they used to. The old barns have so much character.

I appreciate people who post their EXIF data along with their photos...that has been a huge help in furthering my skills.
Thanks for looking at my blog. I may not always reply to comments, but your comment will allways send me to your blog. All comments are welcome and appreciated!

Awesome picture...didn't get any good ones from the other side? Would have been neat if you could have gotten the creek in it to...Just so majestic standing there...

@Linda (MOM): Yes I did get a nice shot of the other side and it will post in a couple of days. I didnt see a creek. Thanks for the complement mom.

This is truly amazing -- never seen one so elaborate. They made a number of them here in Saskatchewan with fieldstone and wood like this. I would love to hear the story of this amazing building, miraculously still in use !!

@Phil David Alexander Morris: It is so much prettier in person. I'm not from the area where this was taken - I was passing through (rural Illinois). I was in awe of this building, and didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to get a shot of it. Thank you for the complement!
