There are not many barns where I live, but boy when we drove to South Carolina I could have spent the day just taking pictures of barns. I cajoled my daughter to take pictures as fast as she could with me driving. Ah we had a couple scuffles doing it that way - but it was FUN! I got a fence and a gate too. Well this is my first time. Not nearly as good as y'alls, but I got a couple others too.
Now this is a barn - with a fence hiding it. Not sure what it was for. Now I think she did pretty good considering we were going 70+ mph. We both have a lot to learn.
