Found a new one

A Sunday drive through Missouri shows more barns, once the pride of every farm, are disappearing at a rather alarming rate victims of that notorious enemy called "demolition by neglect."   
I recently was surprised to find someone was actually building a new barn.  Not the best photo since it was shot from a moving car, but a delight to know there is one barn that will still be around into the next century.

same spot for at least a dozen years. They are between two houses in a neighboring town.

Dried Grass

Don't know why but this is one of my favorite photos.
This tall grass, has so many stages during the seasons.  I especially like
when it is dried in winter an peeking over the patio fence covered in frost.

Just so sad to find old barns being left to decay.  Even sadder is the fact that I can not remember where I snapped this photo.
