Default A few more barns etc

Out bicycling to a nearby school Friday, had a bit of extra time on the way to enjoy the old farmland...

Right down the road is the old Acuff Chapel, the first Methodist Episcopal Church built in Tennessee (1786).

Which view do you prefer?

And the barn across the road is a fine billboard!

Hope to have more time next week to wander some backroads and enjoy spring returning to our green East Tennessee hills!

Thanks for any comments/critique!

Ah, my favorite nonliving subject.
There you go again with those multi choice questions.
I like the first and third shots of the chapel and all the others too.

You must have been bicycling hard to stir up enough wind to bend the tree in the first two photos.....

I really like your old barn photos. I was driving a back highway this morning, saw a similar old barn, and thought of your shots...thought I'd stop, but I was past it and too lazy to go back. Such building have so much character.

The old church building is particularly interesting, though. The Methodist Episcopal Church, if I remember my church history correctly, is the Methodist Church in the South, as opposed to the northern church, which opposed slavery. The reason it's so interesting to me is that I have a relative that was passing through that area at about that time (The first place we can definitely pin him down is Maryville in 1795.) Since my family was uniformly devoutly Methodist, it's quite possible there can be a connection. (Another of my ancestors carved an elaborate church pulpit by hand for a Methodist church in western North Carolina in 1832; the pulpit is still in use today.)

Very cool photos. You not only live in an exceptionally photogenic area. You have the vision to take advantage of it. One of these days I hope to make it to your area. We have a niece in Johnson City who has promised us a couch to sleep on. Not only that, I think she has my K100 right now (I loaned it to her dad, but I suspect he loaned it to her, lol.)

A wonderful series of pictures! I like them all, but think I prefer 2 and 4 - they have more of a traditional feel to them.

Nice. I love old barns. I like the 1st and 3rd of the chapel ones.
