This old barn


This old barn is located on Statler Road, just east of Piqua. It needs some attention, and not just from my camera. Try this: close your eyes and image a time in the past when this barn was an important part of life. It would have been especially busy at this time of year. In my mind’s eye, I can see a busy family. Kids playing in the yard while everyone is busy preparing for winter.  

Today so much of what we called ‘farming’ has been commercialized. When you drive around here, you see barns like this often. They need repairs that are not justifiable, leaving the structure unsafe. In some way, still beautiful, holding the dreams of a past generation. 

Prints are available for many of the photos on this site on canvas, metal or glass. They are stunning and you can purchase them for a wall at home. Click the link or the ‘prints and such’ tab.
