An Iowa Barn


This barn photo was taken by my son on his travels through Iowa recently.  He captured this on his iphone.  I lightened the color a little bit in order to see it better, the original shot was just a bit dark.  Here's another shot from a different angle below.


Be sure to visit Tricia's Barn Charm
to see some great barns all around the country!

Until next time...

  4. It is a nice shaped barn - and I love the vines, even though I know vines tend to destroy the buildings...he did a good job snapping those for you! We are training them well, don't you think?

  5. Look at that ivy growing on that barn. I can remember our old high school had ivy growing up it like that. One day I happened to look out the girls bathroom window and there was a huge snake slithering up the ivy.... Have never liked ivy since.

  7. It's fascinating that the two doors with ivy growing around them are whiter than the doors. It's like they have recently been painted. Perhaps the green ivy just highlights the white better.
    I love this barn!

  15. I like the red and white paint pattern and those vines are pretty cool like the barn is growing some kind of strange beard. :)
    Your son did well with his phone.
