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.
