    Welcome USAir, Motorcycles are a great way to travel - "One Less Car" as my license plate says. I have a thing for bricks too. Liked your shots, especially the brick and the columns and shadows.

    I like this one. The sense of scale because of the windows, the tone and texture of the bricks, the lovely old painted ad... all things that make it a good shot.

    Yes bikes are lots of fun but the season here in Ky is about over too cold.

    It's been a real challenge to figure out how to carry my camera equipment and other stuff for the ride especially for a long ride.

    I sure you know what I mean not a lot of room.

    Loved this shot.
    Yes I think I have a thing for bricks but they just look so cool.

    I love old barns too - the "See Rock City" - "Chew Mail Pouch" variety especially. Some times they are unique in their painting, like this one...

    I know you have more pictures of barns than that Fish. :D Show us some more please.

    USAir - you asked how we carry optical good on two wheels. I carried my 10D in my tank bag on my GS across the country to Colorado and New Mexico and back. I put one inch of foam rubber inside the tank bag under neath the camera case and the camera did just fine. Lots of pictures on my smugmug acct from that trip.

    I carried a 20D to West Virgina in a Pelican Case bolted to the rear luggage carrier on my GS and it to survived just fine. I try to pay attention to sustained vibration and do what I can to avoid it. Generally I think tank bags vibrate less than tail bags, but it may depend on the bike to an extent.

    I am sure the journalists in the tank brigades in Iraq never had to be concerned with vibration or dust - NOT!

    Show us some more pictures USAir....

    I think they must get their stuff for free :D

    I worry about taking the camera though I will put it into the Jesse's in a
    padded bag and on top of something soft. I like your idea of using the Peli-case.
    Did you drill holes in it?

    Out on the weekend
    Thanks everyone for the comments sorry it took so long for me to get back.

    My job gets in the way of my fun.



    I work at an airport it has been very busy.

    We are adding another runway this will be number four.

    And all the connecting taxiways weather stations all kinds of stuff.



    Anyway, that’s one cool photo pathfinder of your bike in the window.



    I usually carry my camera backpack on the seat behind me.


    Heres another barn idon't have many on line..I 'll have to up load some.

    I have what seems like a dumb question regarding the construction. But this one
    seems to have been built to allow airflow. Is it for hay or something that needs
    a lot of airflow?

    I like the picture!

    TIA,

    Yes I did drill thre 1/4 inch holes in it to secure where my Givi top box mounts. The Givi is large and catches too much wind some times with the Jesses. I'll try to catch a picture and post it for you. The Pelican box was a horrible turquoise to I sprayed it with AL paint. I forgot that AL paint can rub off with abrasive cloth, like an Aerostich jacket my significant other was wearing. Oh well, live and learn. But I liked how it carried a 20D, and a 28-75 and a 70-300 lenses and kept them dry in the rain on the road as well.

    Most tobacco barns are slightly open I think to allow drying of tobacco. Many tobacco barns are painted black or dark brown. Not sure if this is a tobacco barn, but tobacco is grown is some southern Indiana counties.

    After further rumination, I suspect that this slotting is to allow dryin of other crops, corn perhaps. Any farmers here who can straighten us out here??

    I looked at a Jesse box while in Spokane and just think it's too big. Plus it'd
    be nice to take the Peli off the bike too.

    Thanks (and thanks for the barn info)!

    Barn
    I am pretty sure this barn is for corn.

    Tobacco barns are dark and usually have long skinny vertical doors for airflow to control the drying process.

    This silo was next to this barn.

    I used to help several farmers in my area work on their tobacco crops (mostly when I was younger).

    This is one hard job lots go into this crop.

    My son now (19 in collage) works for farmers also,doing the same job and he is in very good shape (x high school wrestler).

    Yes IR 717

    This is one cool barn very old, this is the view from my brothers house.

    The inside of this barn has a log cabin design it's for drying something?
    It's like a square in the middle of the barn.
    It almost looks like they built the log cabin then built the barn around it.

    The owner uses it for hay I would love to shoot some inside it is full of old farm tools, old tractors, car parts some really old stuff.

    And a mother Red Fox dens here with babies every year in the back stalls.


    I'll have to dig up some color photos of this barn.

    The log cabin inside the barn sounds like a grainery to me. My grandparents used to store soybeans to dry in a grainery like you described.

    I guess you can get the boy off the farm, but you can't really get the farm out of the boy, - anyway, I love old barns too, not modern pole barns, but the real wooden barns....

    I also enjoy finding quirky kind of stuff along the road also - I found this along a back road in Putnam County.

    It's cold and rainy here snow flurries tomorrow so don' think I be riding anytime soon.

    This was kind of a city post but it soon went to the country.

    But that’s ok I like the country.
