I had never heard of round barns till maybe 20-25 years ago.  Since then we have come across maybe 8 or 10.


I think I like this one better in B&W....

Yes, there is something about this structure that becomes more defined in the mono... lovely! YAM xx

I like them both--- they tell different stories. I do wonder why a round barn? It seems like a LOT of extra work and a lessening of storage practicality. On the other hand, it is beautiful. And that's reason enough, isn't it....

I don't think I've ever seen a round barn other than in pictures. This is a nice looking one.

Hello,

I love the round barns. It does look great in B&W!

Have a great day!

Nice

The time I prefer a color over black and white but I agree with you on this one that looks absolutely beautiful in black and white. Plus I really like the Round Barn thing and makes me wonder how hard it was to build it. And how they do anything inside of it like you couldn't put stalls or anything but maybe it's a hay barn. In other words there's not much storage in a Round Barn I would think

Oh, I love the round barns!

Jeevan said...

I agree! This is something interesting and so different from other barns. Loved it

A great find in this stately barn! I love the B&W version as well as it gives a nice vintage appeal.

I don't know of any round barns in the UK, it seems to be a N American thing. In many ways round buildings are superior to rectangular ones - they require less building material to contain the same amount of space and they are stronger. The ancient Anglo-Saxons knew this and built "round-houses" but somewhere along the line we forgot about them and started building with corners; presumably the Romans may have influenced this. The plan is still used when buildings need to withstand a lot of wind - lighthouses and windmills for example.

Yes, we have several round barns locally. the cows were put on a merry go round kind of thing when being milked. This one looks lovely.

I prefer the B amd W image. I can't imagine how they organize round barns inside.

I've never seen round barn in person. Very cool picture.

harry said...

there is not much difference between the color and B&W versions, though there is a bit of blue/white texture visible in the color

Michael Rawluk said...

I haven't seen a single one. It certainly has an interesting look.
I like both versions.

Love that!

What a great find! I don't think that they are very common. I have only seen one. A county close to where I live has a barn tour every year and one year they had a round barn on the tour. It was quite interesting.

I know where this one is at! I think I take a photo every time I pass it...which for me isn't very often.
