I took this photo in the eastern Sierras, off Highway 395, at the Owens Gorge Road. I love those mailboxes and every time we travel to the Sierras, we drive by them just to see them!

lines~barn, Paso Robles~Sunday Stills 032209


Don't you just love old barns? My parents owned a horse ranch in Vista, CA, when I was about 11 or 12. We never had any horses on it, but I used to LOVE to go there and hang out in the barn! All those delicious smells! I especially loved the old tack room...I can still smell the old leather saddles that once hung there and the manure...ooohhhhhhh!!!! What delicious smells! They sold the ranch several years later after my dad re-roofed that old, red barn and I still drive by it on my way to San Diego to visit my aunt and uncle. Now it is a thriving horse training and boarding center. Next time I go, I'll ask to take some pictures~So I have a love of barns! This one is at Halter Winery, in Paso Robles. Don't you like the lines in it? Sunday Stills for March 22, 2009.

I do love old barns....living in Nebraska you can see a lot of them. I used to take pictures of them...the intentions were to paint them on canvas...but I just never got around to it. I have those pictures around here some where. If I ever find them I will post some! Lana

Yes, this one is a perfect old barn. I love the aging of its wood and the lines of the roof as it reaches its peak. Great shot. Wish I could go inside and smell it!

I too love old barns, I have one today that is of an old log barn. The timbers run the length of the barn, very cool. I have taken pictures of it so maybe I can sketch it.
