Foto Finish - Something Old

One of the things I enjoy most about coming up with a photo for the week's Foto finish post is looking through my photographs.  Sometimes when I see the week's topic, I know exactly what shot I want to post.  Other weeks, I haven't a clue and have to go foraging through the files.  It's amazing the shots you forget about, well at least that I forget about.  I suppose it's just as amazing as the shots you remember taking, even years later you know exactly where to find those few. 

This week's post required a search through the files to come up with the "Something Old".  

This is the cupola on my in-law's barn.  The barn used to be a house, but is now used to store the tractor and lawn mower.  The barn itself is over 100 years old, the weather vane is a lot newer.  I've always liked how this building catches the light.  In this shot, I especially like the contrast of the red barn against the blue sky.

  3. I love that photo..a bit of nostalgia. Also love all of your quilts you have finished this year.

  4. There is a barn in our area that looks so grand against the blue sky with green trees all around. Barns make great subjects. Love the weathervane. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love it! And I love how the bright sunny sky is the backdrop for it!

  6. Great shot - love those colours together.

  7. I love pictures that show things that are weathered and real and aged. Ive read somewhere that some people just photograph old barns as a hobby.

    Loved your photo offering today Kate.
