The Barns of Rankin County

You've heard of The Bridges of Madison County, right?

Welcome to The Barns of Rankin County.

Truthfully, these photos were taken across several counties within 150 mile radius of Rankin County, but I couldn't pass up the pun. 

Did you know The Bridges of Madison County was released in 1995?  It's hard to believe that film is over 20 years old.

When I travel, I'm always on the lookout for interesting objects to photograph. Since real estate is in my blood, I'm naturally drawn to the various architectural styles of barns. Plus, red is one of my favorite colors.

Rustic is always charming.

This last photo isn't a barn but rather a dilapidated restaurant. The stairs on the right are hanging by a rusty nail.

Stay tuned for the next series of photos; the subject matter has already been selected.
