On the way to yoga class, down a winding country road, there's an old barn that grabs my attention every time I pass it. Finally I got a few photos of the charming place, thanks to my chauffeur stopping the car in the middle of the road so that I could lean out the window and grab some shots.

It's a two-part barn, which is interesting in itself, set on a slope so that one building is higher than the other.

It's charming and bucolic in the way that barns are
to city folk like myself.

But what really fascinates me is the sag in the middle where the two structures adjoin each other.

I didn't manage to get a photo that really shows just how much they dip in the middle but I tried for so long that night finally fell upon the scene.

Well, not really, but orange you glad that I played with the picture?
Here's the other end of the barn as we drive past it, heading home.

One last glance down the field
 between the barns and the farm house.
Hands up all those who can spot the cat in the grass!

For a completely romanticized version of this bent barn, just hop over to my art blog, Ragzedge.  It's well worth the exercise, I promise you, if you are at all romantically inclined.
