Blue Barn

A year ago, on our way to the AQS show in Syracuse NY, my Mom and I drove by a gray barn with a bright blue roof at the far end of a large pasture. I didn't stop to take a photo, which I immediately regretted.

"Gray barn, bright blue metal roof, white trim, gotta remember that!" I said aloud.

"Huh?" my Mother asked.

"We just drove by a gray barn with a bright blue metal roof with white trim, and I should have stopped to take a picture, but it's too late now. I don't want to forget."

But I did forget, because a few miles down the road, we saw a PINK barn, and I made sure to stop for that.

When my Dad and I drove out to Hoosick Falls NY a few weekends ago, I didn't make that mistake again. I made sure to stop to get a picture. I had forgotten there was a second, smaller, building nearby.

WHEN you take pictures makes a difference on how things look, as I am sure you are all aware. The first time I saw these barns, they were in full shade, and their colors were more intense. In full sun, they are a bit bleached out, but still, how gorgeous!

And what a clean unobstructed setting! So glad you stopped this time - definitely "keeper" photos.

I know it wasn't, but this barn could have inspired the bird you show on your bird tutorial in your Etsy shop.

Sometime I'd love to put a tin roof on our house. Just can't decide which color. But I sure love this blue, in sunshine and shadow.
