Barn Charm & Texture Tuesday

I do like to participate in Tricia's Barn Charm every Monday, but this week I didn't go out "barning"...too much other stuff going on...start of new Bible Study, out of town for the weekend wedding etc etc.  So dug into my archives to get these.  These all were taken early in the summer in DeKalb County, IL when there was a promise of good crops.





And I am also adding Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday challenge for this week.....orange.  Is that cheating, I don't think so....I am gonna call it conservation of time.  That sounds real good.  I used two textures on each....one by R H West called Chapel and the other by Kim Klassen called Sweet Treat.  Both are applied with soft light.  I just love those beautiful Fall colors of oranges, greens, purples and blues.






Hope everyone has started out on a good foot this week and it continues...

Until next time....

  11. That first shot of the barn is incredibly beautiful! That pop of red on the left and the leading lines of the road on the right make for a very pleasing photo. The texture is absolutely brilliant.

  19. All are really lovely, but the top one with the gentle ribbon of a road takes my heart! I grew up very close to Dekalb IL... Rockford. And I drove out when "no hope" had raised its ugly head.
