Thinking About Barns and Silos
Originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer
Many years ago I took a series of slides of barns and silos for a farm unit I was teaching to grade one children. Friday, as I drove down some country roads on the way to Hamilton, I realized that some of those barns were long gone and others were well on their way. Several of the barns in our neighbourhood that were full of dairy and beef cows only two years ago are now empty and falling into disrepair. I am thinking that perhaps a new set of photos is in order before this architecture and way of life is totally gone.
