This is one of my favorite barns around my small town.
It is on Rt. 147 East towards the little town of Bethesda, Ohio.
The day that my hubby and I took a drive to capture barns around Bethesda,
I was finally able to get some shots of this one.
We have more of these quilt motifs in my area;
some are simply quilt blocks,
whereas others feature Ohio dates.
This one was for our celebration of 200 years as a state.
It is an active farm as you can see with the farmer and his tractor.
He did not seem to mind me pointing the camera at his barn and him.
(Mike was able to pull off a little to the side of busy Rt. 147.)
I imagine the farmer is used to folks snapping pics of his barn and its lovely design.
Notice the cloud bank in the lower margin of the sky
directly behind the big barn.
I love our shades of blue skies interspersed with lovely white clouds!
Here is a close up of the design.
It's a little off kilter.
Mike was needing to get back on the road
due to an increase of traffic
and us not being able to pull completely off the road,
so my aim is crooked.
I straightened it up with my photo program,
so that the design is straighter,
but now the outer frame of the picture is off.
