Sunday Stills Challenge - - Architecture



This weeks Sunday Stills Challenge was on architecture. Ed jokingly added that he thought about eliminating barns but didn't. Saying it wouldn't be fair. Geez! You bet not fair since many of us who particpate own horses and live in the country. Not only are barns of major interest to us, they're about the only thing we get to see. LOL



The first two pictures of different sides of the same barn. This barn was intented for hay storage but as the size of my herd has expanded that has changed. Little modifications here and there have created stalls for over flow. We hope someday to convert this back to strictly hay storage. With this many horses we really need it.



This last picture is my usual quirky addition to Sunday Stills. While maybe this doesn't really qualify as architecture, it is a dwelling. If you don't think so just ask the birds who live in this little condominium.

  2. I came to this Sunday Stills site a bit late, so am intrigued by the number of horse and barn folk who are involved! I love it - a whole new life for me to visit.

    Your barn looks interesting - and I like the heads poking out!

  16. I absolutely adore your birdhouse! ;) And I agree with you about old barns and other old historic buildings - I always wonder about the story behind them.

  17. Love, love, love the birdhouse! That picture takes the cake as far as I am concerned! I love barns too, I see them and want to stop and take pictures of them. Of course now you can't see them with all of the snow we have!

    What a wonderful story about you receiving the hay!!! I am so tickled for you, couldn't happen to anyone nicer!
