I didn’t set out to take pictures of this round barn while I was staying in Seymour, Indiana. I just headed southwest one afternoon with my camera, driving through Brownstown and Vallonia, and on to Medora to see what I could see. And there it was!
From a flyer I read that the barn was built in 1910 for a cost of $1,500. It was constructed of locally milled beech wood with a self-supporting, two-pitch gambrel roof. The very nice gentleman who lived right across the road offered to let me look inside so I took this shot of the inside, looking up.
Spent a few days in Indiana this past week where I found myself traveling the countryside. Mostly all I found to photograph was lots of corn, soybeans, roadside weeds and barns. But I did drive by this field with one lone — and very bashful — alpaca. He gave me this “what are you looking at?” stare and then trotted off into another unapproachable pasture. I only got one shot!
