I am attracted to old barns and out buildings. I really like the weathered wood and the old hardware on the doors. The photo to the left is the door and hinges on an old corn crib (that’s what we used to call the one on my uncle’s farm). I like the look of the hinges and the weathered, painted wood. I took this photo and the reset of the photos in this post at the Historical Society of Bridgeport grounds. This is a nice area where the group has put together a nice historic park, including restored buildings from earlier days. There is a paved pathway that you can follow and some really nice flower gardens. I’m not sure what kind of plant this is, but I like the way it is climbing up the beam to the portico. I used my 50 mm lens today. I like the bokeh effect on the back ground, which really draws your attention to the flowers as the main focal point.

These are some of the rooftops of Frankenmuth, Michigan, also known as Little Bavaria. One look at these rooftops and you can understand where the nickname comes from.
