This was an old tobacco barn in Indiana that was being taken apart timber by timber.  It’s a barn that I’ve passed 100 times on my way to one of my favorite places in the world.  We have a cabin nearby on the Ohio River where I spent every childhood summer.  But on this day, when it was being dismantled – I stopped hoping to capture an image before the barn was gone forever.   Sometimes they reuse the lumber to build something else in a different location.  On your next road trip, take notice of the barns you pass, every one has their very own special character.  Use the zoom tool on this image to check out the details.  It’s crazy how this thing was built.  Some of the headers are actually small trees or limbs.  We’d love to hear you thoughts and comments.
