Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

Angular forms of barns — new, lived-in, old, abandoned — stand in stark contrast to the curving landscape of The Palouse, America’s largest expanse of grain fields in eastern Washington and western Idaho.  And if it weren’t for minimal shoulders along the winding highway, we’d have even more pictures in our collection:  It’s a photographer’s dreamland!

    Amazing barns, all very angular, the top one looks as though it was made from cardboard and as though a good puff of wind would blow the barn down…

      Thanks so much! We loved the grain elevator, too. It’s not scenery we see in East Tennessee or at least not where I’ve been. But we loved seeing it in Idaho and eastern Washington. Thanks for taking a look!

      A couple of folks have liked that first one, and I did, too. Had to get my husband to pull over while I stood on the running board, but it was worth it. I’m becoming a fan of old barns. Thanks for taking a look.

    Bicycling across the West, I often used these giant barns, and grain elevators as landmarks and goals, cycling from one to the next and whiling away the hours across an endless landscape. –Curt

      I hadn’t thought of them as landmarks, but they would be terrific for that. In fact, there aren’t many landmarks, not even mile markers. It’s pretty stark out there — but that’s part of the charm.

      It really is angular — love the whole top part. But the decay was also interesting, if you can say decay is interesting. I love seeing the ravages of time and weather, especially on barns, for some reason. Thanks for commenting.

It makes our day to hear from you.
