Not Your Typical Barn

Red Roof and Green Grass

Juxtaposition of colors and textures tempted me. Not a typical barn, but I love its individuality. Hmm. Can a building have individuality?

I think so.

Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you.

    Wonderful composition and nice colors… it has a calming effect.

  2. Yes, indeed, I think a building can have individuality. And this one sure shows its individuality. I love the windows on top… not the same. And the barn siding contrasts with the patterns of the roof. Neat patterning all in all. Looking at the photo, it feels the patterns are flowing to the left. This barn states that it is not like all the rest. 🙂

    I’m a sucker for texture. And this barn has a nice texture to it.

  4. Beautiful shot – I love the lines and colours!
    And yes, I think so too 🙂

  5. Saludos and thanks for visiting my site over at You have so many colorful photos. True eye candy stuff for a color junkie. Those blue skies and primary colors jump right out. Looking forward to more. I’d like to visit your part of the country sometime soon to research another novel.

  6. Very cool barn. And not typical at all.

    Wonderful shot, Bo. I like the colors, the lines, and the textures.
