Looking Back

Looking back and admiring our past. Our ancestors who settled the land worked hard. It was certainly a way of life that many of us would struggle with. Imagine, no electricity, plumbing, grocery stores or any other conveniences.

The next time you find yourself looking at a barn, try to imagine what it took to clear the land and build the first barn.  Additions to the original barn are quite common.

I think people were made of stronger stuff back then. Stronger than me anyway.

These are both good but I prefer the composition of the second.
Definitely a different life style back then, working hard just to survive. Lovely photos!

Love the first barn and the second but the first one makes me think of our ancestors more and yes it was hard for them I am sure. Great photos and post . B

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks of these things when I take barn photos. Lovely rural scenes, Daniel.

Great post, Dan. I love the photos...and I also love to reminisce about days gone by.

I love hearing about the old days, I guess that's why I like the Walton's and Little House on the Prairie. :)
Love your photos!

We're far mushier than our predecessors. They were tough stuff.
