The Brenda Photo Challenge- Memories










How many of us have played in or spent some time working in a barn? They are castles of the prairie. Many are still standing after over one hundred years. Think how many memories are floating around these beauties to be found around our nation. I think of playing king of the hill on hay bales, tag or a good game of hide and seek. Hours were spent investigating every area hoping to find something new.

  1. Is this a farm museum? Steve, you photograph the most interesting places. I can remember as a child, playing in the barn at the old hill farm my father bought as a summer house. Later we went to live there. I loved that barn. And now my brother is thinking of buying it back from the estate of its last owner- Memories, Memories.

  5. Neat post, Steve. I truly have not ever spent much time in or around a barn... I'm such a 'city' (town) girl....

    BUT--when we were at Biltmore--we visited their old barn and saw lots of great old farm equipment... It was so much fun.

    Have a great weekend.

  6. My uncle lived on a farm and when we visited all of us kids were out playing in the barn. Maybe that's why I like them so much

  9. Thanks for becoming a "follower". I love the photos of the old barns and farm equipment. I grew up on a farm with a big red barn--you are so right, I played up in the hayloft, watched the barn swallows build nests, and loved the smell of the hay and horses. Mickie ;)

  16. Love these old barns. I played in a few when I was a kid. Sad to see so many just rotting away now.

  17. We should certainly be careful to preserve these artifacts. I'm worried that they'll all disappear from our landscape as it gets developed or as megafarms take over.

    Jumping from a loft into a deep pile of hay was one of my favorite activities as a kid!
