When I'm out taking photographs of things that have been around for a long time, I find myself reflecting on the past.  James Lumbar depicted many scenes in his art with a view from days gone by imagining moments of that period.  I'm also the proud owner of his piece titled "Memories of a Summer Day."


















Have yourself a happy today and tomorrow!

Great captures of some great barns. I love the first image.
I find I look at barns differently these days.. I see them.

I love what Laura says in her comment, that because of your pictures she now sees barns. I think this is what good art does...it restores vision.

Oh these images are beautiful Daniel. I have never driven by a barn they are art in themselves for sure and you have captured them perfectly.
I have always admired James Lumber's work another great Canadian artist.You are lucky to own a piece of his work.
We certainly have a lot of beautiful barns in our area. B

These are gorgeous shots, especially the first one.
These rural shots are very striking. The compositions are wonderful, making me want to take a stroll. The rich, vivid colors are stunning as well. Great work!

Well I am enjoying that beautiful blue sky and green grass in your images! Beats my snow anytime! :D
I look at barns differently too but boy yours are beautiful selected.

I dont see many barns out my way as charming as alott of bloggers show and yourself.

Lovely Photography!
I would add that I grew up with farm country and barns all around, but you and TexWis have made me see them with fresh eyes. Beautiful shots, and thanks for introducing me to James Lumbar. He is a fine artist, as are you.

I am feeling the urge to visit Prince Edward County to check out your lovely barns.

Splendid pictures. I often wonder what these rural areas will be like in 50 years - the barns and old building which are such an important part of the "landscape" will be gone and there may be nothing to replace them.

Thanks for the comment on my blog - I've been in Oman for a week hence slow reply!
