REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

A Charming Round Barn

I've photographed and posted an octagonal barn, but this is a true round barn, and it's my most recent barn photo. The farm is located on a private lane, so I had to use a telephoto lens for the photo.   I'm rejoining Tricia's Barn Charm after a short absence. (The zoom lens pulls the mountains in the background much closer than they really are.)

Yes it is charming!

Beth said...

Wow! I've not seen anything like it! I certainly don't know of any in this part of Ohio.
Why round? And why that small window at the top? Perplexing. Fascinating. Beautiful in a unique way. Great share!:>)

EG CameraGirl said...

Yes, very charming! And I love how you processed it in the second photo.

Bev said...

WOW a true round barn... LOVE IT!! thanks for sharing!!

Mari said...

What a wonderful find! Beautiful barn and setting too!

Linnea said...

Very nice! The second shot looks like it could be a painting!

TexWisGirl said...

that is a gorgeous one!

Betty Roan said...

Loving that barn. There is a round one I know about here, or at least I think it is round and not octagon. I need to take a ride out there, but I don't think it is as nice as this one. Nice find!

I think there is only one round barn in the state of Ohio. I assume it is still up and not torn down. I like the round barns but they are as scarce as hen's teeth.

I agree Evelyn, it is charming! And unusual is this north of Joseph? Seems I remember seeing one there...

Daryl Edelstein said...

Never saw a round barn before .. lovely photos ..

Oh, I do love this Evelyn!
It is so rare to see one like this, and I would love to see the inside.
Do you know if there is an actual reason for making a round barn?

That second photo is like a painting! Outstanding!

W. Latane Barton said...

Now I can say I've seen a round barn. That is most unusual. Wonder how they curved the boards to build the walls?

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Mercy sakes alive, that's gorgeous, Evelyn! Love the round barn, the fencing, and not to forget those beautiful, beautiful mountains!

Thank you =)

oh my that barn is beautiful. There are several round barns in the area where I once lived in S.W. Wisconsin, all built by the same man. (Algie Shivers - a freed slave who moved to the area). They have a lot of history associated with them, and I love them. This one looks to be in pretty good shape. Many that I see are in a state of disrepair, and that's sad. Your photos are superb. happy day to you Evelyn.

WOW, amazing pictures and I love that barn! :)

MG Atwood said...

Very nice! Which town is this in? I've seen a round barn in CA, but not in OR

Faye said...

What a happy surprise! Did you just run across this original by accident? The only actual round barn that I've been in is a copy of Thomas Jefferson's original at Montecello.

Your new blog header is such a wonderful composition-love the subject choice--so restrained. Well done.

Angie said...

Oh my goodness! I have never seen one. Never! A round barn. What a capture, Evelyn! And as always, your processing thrills me. I love your work. xo

Bridget Larsen said...

now that would be a nice barn to see inside

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Well, I love what the zoom did for the background. What an interesting structure! I have never seen a round barn before.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Round barns are very rare. This one is a beauty. Like others have said, the second photo looks like a painting. Beautiful!

Beth said...

hope one day i will see a round barn in person. gorgeous. (:

bon bon said...

this is awesome! i posted an octagonal barn just this week! the mountains here add to the beauty.

Nancy said...

Amazing captures, Evelyn. Just love that second one -- beautiful mountain mist in the background.

You use a telephoto lens for the photo.

You are a paparazzi.

Daniel LaFrance said...

First off, it is a beautiful photo. Second, they are rare and there's a fair bit of history. Check it out... barn lovers! :)

Oh, that's a beauty! There a big, round barn just down the road from me. I love those since they're so rarely seen.
