Wonderful shots. I love the sky in the fist picture and the colors in the second.

twisted, both of these are great. I echo yesterday's comments about the sky in #1 and the colors in #2. The style of the garage makes you think it was built to house a carriage instead of a motor vehicle.

Are these in the Ozarks? The first looks like it would belong there. The second doesn't.

The first shot is at Ames Plantation here in Tennessee, The silo is in the Missouri Ozarks.

Have you ever been out to LaGrange....out on Hiway 57 from Collierville? Wonderful town with beautiful Antebellum homes...many of which date from the 1815-1830 period.

I really like the composition of the second shot. The colors of the vines on the silo really help to tie in the colors of the barn and the fall trees. Very well done.

I like the first shot but I am puzzled. It doesn't look like any kind of garage I have seen. That looks like a log cabin with an attached open shed. Nowdays that would be called a carport! If the log building is actually a garage, how do they get vehicles in/out of it?

I think that the building is what I called a "corn crib". I posted a picture of a similar building (located on the farm where I grew up) in the last challenge-"lines". The walls are actually made with spaces between the boards so that there was air cicrulation which allowed the corn to dry. The 'carport' next to the building was possibly to pull in a wagon and unload the corn near the top.
Anyway that's my theory and I'm sticking to it!

Cool photos. I've never seen a silo made of stone like that.
