This was one of those days where I decided to take a road that I had not been down before, just to see what was there to see. It’s that combination of time and curiosity, mixed with a faint hope that there might be something really interesting. Anyhow – this road was in Smithfield, Ontario, between Trenton and Brighton.
The first barn might have had a purpose at one time, but it was in an open field that seemed more like a manicured golf course than anything else. I would have chucked this picture if not for the honking big bird that decided to land just as I took the picture.
This barn is interesting but it’s in a lousy location, with a bunch of houses visible behind it – such is the way in many areas where fertile and valuable farming land is being converted into housing developments.
The final picture is almost too pretty for my liking – I like old barns that are weathered and a bit past their prime. Barns and buildings that are largely forgotten and crumbling over time.
All in all, three barns that were interesting enough, but otherwise blah.
Such is life – you win some, you loose some, sometimes it’s a draw…
