Friday's Fences

 We were wondering around down by Linton...first we went to the Bee Hunter's area...found these birdhouses.
 I think it was partly cause of it being a dreary day, but could not find a good way to photograph the whole row, but am showing these anyway.  It was so much fun to come upon them.
 This is just a couple of the birdhouse designs...
I thought they would make for a different kind of Friday's Fences.

Beauty in the weeds

Just an old weed, but still so beautiful.

Evening glow

This was taken as we drove to Paris, Illinois tonight.  I have so many sunset photos, but still wonderful to be out and witness the sun going down.

Return with a Barn Charm post...

I have been away from blogging for over a week...and probably won't be blogging regular for a while...but thought I would pop in with a post for Barn Charm.
This one we seen on our way to Goose Pond, which is near Linton, Indiana.
I always like zooming in and seeing what I can see on the inside.
This is the straight-on shot...notice the cows in the background?
There was a number of them, all to the right of the barn.  And all a fair distance from the fence.  I was going to walk on past the barn to take a shot or two looking back at the other side, but all the cattle took off running.  I did not want to scare them any more so walked back to the car, before I got in, this is what I saw.    They all had their eyes on me.

From the archives...

Since I cannot find the photo I am looking for, I will post this oldie but goldie. 

For those that haven't seen photos of Lorelei in a while, check out my Pics & Pieces blog post.

Another drive-by

You can tell this is through the windshield...but I am posting it anyway.  One of these days I am going to have Roger stop till I can get a good photo.  This is a bar in Brazil, Indiana.

Friday's fence

I have had this forever and just never seem to post it, so came across and thought it fit Friday's fences, even if the fence is in the background.

View from the west side...

I posted this barn the other day for Barn Charm...I took them as we traveled to Arthur, Illinois.  This one was taken on our way home in late evening light.

Two versions for barn charm...

 This is another drive by from going to Arthur, Illinois the other day. 
I don't even remember what I did to get this second version...but I really like it.

B&W version

I posted this in color a couple months ago...I found this version that I had did in B&W and like it better than the color version.

From the old files...

I was looking through my photos for something to post.   I came across several barn photos that really appeal to me.  This was taken in September of 2004.  It is a drive-by.  I think it is better when clicked on to expand the view.

Drive through the strip pits...

I drove through the strip pits today...once on my way to the quilt shop and then again as I came back home.  I saw several of these short-eared owls.

A hodge-podge for Barn Charm

 Someone posted a barn that was built similar to this 2 or 3 weeks ago.  Only the one they posted was in wonderful shape.....just a beauty.  But it immediately made me this of this old one.  So I wanted to post it...these are never before posted photos of it, but I have posted other photos of it.
I have been watching it for several years now....just a few more boards are missing.  I really do wonder just how long it can continue to stand.

 These two photos were from our drive yesterday.  I love the barn above, have passed it a million times, and think I have only attempted to shoot it one other time.  I just love its gambrel roof.  It isn't far from here, but not a real good place to pull off the road so just got this drive by shot.  You can see that the fence is sort of blurry...we were going at least 55-60 mph.

This is one I had seen a few times is on a back road so we did pause as I took the photo.  This is through the windshield.

Hard to resist....

We were at Mansfield this afternoon...fished just a little.  I saw this kitty....and almost brought her home.  Not that I need another but the look from her eyes and just her face in general reminds me of my last Cougar...

Another foggoy morning shot

The girls have gone to eat with the other side of the family but will be back shortly. Just thought I would take this opportunity to post a photo.

Another drive-by from Tennessee

It is such a gray day here...thought the day deserved a B&W photo.

We had Lorelei for the weekend...always hard for me to get back into normal things after she goes home. I miss her terribly when we take her and then come back home to such an empty feeling house. But she'll be back...for Thanksgiving!

A long time getting this one...

We pass this sign every time we go to get Lorelei, or every time we go to her house.  I have been meaning to snap a photo of it for two or three years now and just a bit back remember it in time to get my camera out.

Down a rural Tennessee road...

I couldn't find this place again if I had to....but I love the feel of this area.

Before the killing frost...

It will be a while before we see any flowers again...I always hate saying good-bye to autumn.

From last year

I wanted to do a quick post and was looking back to last year about this time...came across this.  I don't think I have posted it before....and I do think that clicking on it shows it off better....

Tennessee Quilt Barn Charm

 I think I actually stopped for all of these shots...the only one I am not positive about is the top and I am pretty sure we at least paused...
 The last three there was actually room to pull off....
 I am always amazed at the applique blocks with all the curved lines. 
And whoever did this Mariner's compass really had a job and had talent.
Hope you have enjoyed them...linking to Barn Charm

From Veedersburg fleamarket...

This is another item from the flea market...not sure what it was used for.  If you know, feel free to tell us.  Now take a look at what it was sitting on...
Notice the feet!  Yes, this is the item that had the clawfoot I photographed and showed the other day.

From the road

We  have passed this for years.... I just this year tried to photo graph as we passed.  I have been trying to find out just what it is.  I think it is Dupont...I see it from I275.

A quick snap...

This was on past the building that is seen in yesterday fence shot...I actually think it was a house and not a barn that is showing.  Roger paused for me to try to get a quick shot of this.  I have straightened it, and tried to improve it.  Still not as good as I would like...but had to show the quilt block.

Friday's fence from Tennessee

This week my Friday's fence is from is a drive by...I don't even know what the building was that it was by. Just no stopping to take photos. Twisting, winding roads...and enough traffic that we didn't dare stop if we couldn't see just a little way behind us.

The old corn crib

This is the crib that was crib that you glimpse in the first photo of this post.  It has stood there for longer than I have had been a 3 or 4 years since I was near it.  The last time I saw it, it was not leaning as it is now.

Claw foot?

Not sure if this is technically a claw foot....but I consider it one.  This is a cropped portion of a shot from the flea market in Veedersburg.

Barn Charm from Indiana

This is a barn we found last right here in Indiana and one I had never seen before.

Even it was on a curvy road...well, where it was at was curvy.  But I snapped a few quick shots.
I felt like it was a place with plenty of tales to tell.
I was so glad I glance back and saw this view as we drove on past. It gave me a completed feeling.
