Barns




I can see this old barn out the window as I sit here at my computer. I love how the different woods of the building and the doors have weathered. The village farmers are starting to drive up and down the road on their tractors which makes me think this barn may see some action soon. It's been sitting very quietly all winter.








I can tell by the metal panels on each side of this barn that in the past it was used as a tobacco-drying barn. The panels would be raised to let the air circulate and dry the hanging leaves.







This is a modern tobacco 'barn' right across the road from my weathered neighbor. Doesn't have quite the same aesthetic appeal, does it?
