winter ice storm -- midwest
Very strange. Never seen anything like it, or the wall.
Hattie -- this photo was taken in Central Kentucky where there are many farm areas. I don't know if you are familiar with the midsection of our country -- old farm silos abound there -- thanks -- barbara
I also enjoy seeing the different forms of fencing...that stone wall took a lot of work, as well as the silo with all that concrete!
Barbara -- The concrete silo will be there till dooms day -- it is really solid. The masonry stone fence is one example of the old masonry fences that abound in Central Kentucky. thanks -- barbara
That silo photo is iconic. My friend Ann has a silo attached to a mostly fallen barn and the silo cannot be removed--someone put it on Wisconsin's register as the first silo in her county.
Joanne -- Interesting about the silo you mentioned. Seems like they could remove the barn and leave the silo standing? thanks -- barbara
It feels very Midwest. Makes me feel nostalgic. I'm preparing for a visit to Indiana in September.
Melissa -- Taken in central Kentucky a few years ago when I was out and about in its beautiful farm lands. Have fun in the Midwest -- thanks barbara
Looks almost as if there should be a castle standing next to it. There's a grandeur here.
June -- Yes, I believe you are right. I wish the farm buildings would have still been there when I took the photo. thanks -- barbara
No doubt it has stories to tell....:)
troutbirder -- And I do wish that I knew them -- barbara
I enjoyed the photo very much. It was very well made per se and told the story almost all by itself. Silos seems to be going out of fashion (st least here), but the old ones will still be here to tell there stories.
visualnorway -- Thanks for the nice comment. Not only are silos disappearing from our landscapes but so are the barns, farmhouses, and farm outbuildings. Lately it seems that this is happening at lightning speed. I wish it were not so. -- barbara
A very strange sight...It feels more European than American, somehow, yes, maybe because of the castle association...A reminder that things that once existed in our realm are not permanent. Including us...
Rita -- Like your last words in your comment -- we are just visiting for awhile I guess. This is a throw-away culture that we are living in so I imagine that in due time there will be little left of our farmsteads. But for now I can still find wonderful farm structures to take photos of and appreciate. thanks -- barbara
