Art's Barn

This post is dedicated to my friend, Art, who is turning 96 on Wednesday.  He still lives on this farm site.  He was kind enough to let me come and take photos of his beautiful barn.





 Another one of the out buildings and an old corn crib

These photos are straight out of the camera, except for resizing and adding my name.


Wishing you a Happy 96th Birthday Art!


Thanks for stopping by!   Have a great week!

 Until next time.

Happy birthday Art from Australia too. Loving the barn and corn-crib photograph you took Barb. That is a brand new term to me; I'm more used to 'wheat-silos' from our countryside.

A beautiful homestead...happy 96th to Art!

Faye said...

So glad Art's barn is still in such good repair. I'll bet that's a great source of satisfaction for him as well. Good also to see the old outbuildings still standing even though they may not be used for the same purpose.

Like your restrained approach to photography. I go overboard with bells and whistles sometimes--like tonight getting some sunset shots.

Bev said...

Beautiful barns and beautiful setting!

Your friend is gonna love this! I don’t know, but men really love having and living with on their barn. Barns are really something of value to them that they choose to spend all their life taking care of them. I’m sure Mr. Art loves his barn so much too. Happy 96th birthday to your friend!
