The Old Homestead Barn

Al and I did one of our wanders last Friday and found an old barn out in rural South Carolina which is about to be torn down.  If you want to see this type of scene, you need to do it soon.

The Old Country Farm

This is first of a few blogs from a drive through the countryside where we found an old farm. I love the old buildings and the sheets hanging on the line tells us that someone is still living there.

Ross Farm Museum

Here are more photographs from the Ross Farm Museum. The shapes and colors work well for me. The woodworker is one of the craftsmen who help maintain the crafts which were needed to maintain a farm.

More Rural Images

I am finding that the rural sights from around St. Charles are so inviting. Everything in them seems to work well together for me.

Country Barn

One of the things Al and I look for is not unusual for photographers, old barns and we find them and photograph them. The challenge is to find the elements that caught the eye and show them to others.

Around the Farm

Old farms have great, old outbuildings, weed growth and undisturbed dandelions. I love the blues and greys of the barn side and the weeds growing alongside adds touch of color. The old barn also is a container of history and I imagine the people who used it. The large green leaves on the rusted barrel top and the vines growing growing up the side of the barn are kind of like music. Finally, who can resist a dandelion in full seed ready to parachute off to the next field ?Shoot with Al in Country-128 Shoot with Al in Country-126 Shoot with Al in Country-131 Shoot with Al in Country-140
