Falling for Fall

A month ago, when I could amble, I took an exploratory trip to a place called the Monocacy Battlefield. It has a wonderful historic museum as well as several farms to wander around. They are actively leased by real farmers who put up with the tromp of tourists.  I took the photos (manipulated for an autumnal feel) below.  They do not actually fit into the Room Without Walls, but all I have for now.  I hope they get you ready for fall.

A traditional rail fence along a meadow path.

A modern barn.

A well maintained traditional tobacco barn converted for storage.

Nice work on the fence picture. It's reminds of old etchings, quite beautiful.

I am delighted these were all you had or we might not have ever seen them. I love rural scenes, especially barn photos.

That fence was a tricky shot. I thought you had drawn it - Dave

They are wonderful additions to the room without walls - all of them. I am so glad you posted these.

Gosh, the dimentions of that Tobacco barn are enormous. Love how you converted that photo of the traditional rail into a sketch. This place looks well worth a visit!
