A home in the past

This house is sure has seen better is not too far from the big, two story white house featured a few days ago.

A land going dark

I love the church steeple in the sky has been featured in other sunset posts..

The whole barn

I could not resist showing the barn as a whole, plus the sky background.

Red door

We were passing through a small town near here when I noticed the red door...I have been through there many times and not noticed it. Either it had not been done before or I must have had my blinders was very obvious and the only way I could have missed it was to be looking straight ahead.

Another post topper

For a while now, I have been noticing the things left on the top of fence posts. I suppose they are put there to get them out of the way...or are they to serve as a marker for someone else? Either way, I try to photograph them when I can...this time to me, it looks like a piece of concrete.

Another shot from you can see the building cannot be classified as big...
and one can definitely say it has seen better days. But what puzzles me is the way the roof is made...does anyone have any idea why it is built with those sections sticking up?

Beautiful Illinois farm

The photo above could be better...but I have to say I have never seen any with quite that style of trim.

The porch was beautiful as well....
But the house as a whole was really stunning...

Amish farm....

Kind of a busy, cluttered shot, but I am still going to publish it.

A little lean to it...

We both assumed this is/was an outhouse...but it is so small I am not sure...and look at the pipe coming up through the roof. I thought at first it was PVC but not so sure now. I also thought the diamond shape cut in the wall was different.

Autumn color

I did not notice the torn tip of this till I was getting this ready for a blog post...I still like how I feel like I can reach out and touch it so will post it anyway.

Well kept farm

I just love the big old tree here...I think I took the picture as much for it as I did for the barn.

Around the bend...

The title is also the name of Carletta's blog...but I could not resist it. Every time I take a picture that includes the curve in the road...I think of her. So, Carletta, hope you didn't mind that I used your blog for inspiration.

Big red barn

Something about this specific view always brings Clifford, the big red dog to mind. Maybe it would be just right for a house for him.

Not a barn, but....

This little building was at the same farm as the barn I posted almost looks as if all the posts, etc piled against the one end is holding the building up.

From across the border (from Illinois in other words)

I hope you aren't going to mind a few barns...I have some to post from my Monday drive. This one could use a little TLC, but other than the roof it does not look that bad. Below is a cropped portion of the above photo to give a better view.

I passed through the strip pits the other day, and saw 3 or 4 Viceroys. To be honest, I think this photo almost doesn't look like a real butterfly, but I assure you it is. They seem to set with their wings open, while a Monarch sits with them closed.

Early evening glow

This farm was one of those places where everything was just looked so clean and neat in the early evening light.

Hard to take

This place was so surrounded by weeds, and vines, etc that it was hard to get a photo of it. On past it, and back off the road a bit was a barn that you could barely see. Not enough of it was showing to even be worthy of a picture. It was painted red also.

Cottonwood leaves

I love the backlit leaf above...
and I love them just looking straight on. To me, cottonwoods are not exactly the most beautiful tree....but in certain light when the leaves are turning gold in the finer sight can be seen.

For Mike and Frank....

I think Mike and Frank of American Pickers would love all these signs and gas pumps...the only thing they would not like is that it is not for sale.
Believe it or not, I could find this place again! And I want to go back...Roger saw something I didn't see--their mailbox was in a gas pump. So one of these days I want to go back to see that and get a picture if I can. It is on a well traveled road with no place to pull hoping I can be by there when the traffic is light.

They make me smile...

I never tire of seeing sunflowers...whether mine or yours. You could probably post them every day of the week and I would still like them. This is a late one growing in my yard. I know it is probably one of the last ones to be seen.

Do you see what I see?

I was taking the picture before I saw the little critter up there--do you see him? It must have been a very good year for them.

The Big Chicken

This is outside a restaurant--I think in Attica. Though I have passed him probably 20 times or more, this is the first photo I have taken of him.

Looking through....

This is a little tunnel under a railroad...I am posting other views of it on my Pics and Pieces blog later on tonight. I always like pictures that make me feel like I am looking through it window, door, covered bridge, or just anything. It gives me more a feeling of being there.

What a puzzle this would make...

I can't help but wonder what kind of jigsaw puzzle this would make. I would think a semi-hard one. But it was a frame full of Holstein cattle, I think it would be really hard.

Farm scene

This is the barn that these horses were at...if you look close, you can see them. And look at that one window on the addition to the barn...and then on over to the right of it there is a small hole in the barn. I do wonder what both are for. Just looking at it here, the window looks small...but if you enlarge it, it looks normal size. This in turn makes one think the barn is huge.

Not quite twins....

I had to compare these two to see if they were different....and they are.
The top one was taken up in Howe, Indiana....the second one I don't quite remember where. It was somewhere on the way home from Shipshewana.
The top house has a date of 1891 on it...but I did not see any date on the second one. I could not help but wonder if they were built by the same builder...they sure look similar to me.

Showing the passage of time

I wish I had taken more photos of this window/ I cannot remember what the barn looked like as a whole. It was right against the road, so was lucky to get this. If I remember correctly there was no place to really pull off the road.

All the pretty faces

These young heifers were just a bit afraid of me...I only snapped a couple photos and had to be satisfied with that.

Another nice paint job

I don't think they are quite through with this building...notice the awning has paint on it. I have a feeling that it will receive its on makeover before this building is considered finished. It is also located in Newport, in Vermillion County--across from the courthouse.
