Barns Filled With Plenty

I think it amuses my roommates how charmed I am by covered bridges and barns with fading murals. They both grew up in Pennsylvania so these sites are ordinary, even boring to them, but for myself as a newcomer to this state they have a certain appeal. Besides, who doesn't think there is something delightful about a barn painted with a giant rooster? It was fitting to take pictures it front of this old barn wearing a simple shirtdress, a modern one but evocative of those worn in the 1930s and 40s and photographed by Dorothea Lange.

Such an awesome painting on that barn! I really love the effects on these pictures too. The lighting is gorgeous. Your classic shirt dress is wonderful too. It definitely reminds me of the 30's/40's and the red and blue combination is one of my favorites.
