Horse in the Cowbarn, Skip to My Lou

After leaving the Beatific Barn I drove and explored as the fog slowly lifted. I'm beginning to know my way around in bits and pieces, but one different turn took me into new territory. Suddenly barns such as this appeared at each turn, many much larger, some still nestled in fog. How many were there? Could there have been as many as hundreds around Amenia alone - and unusual houses too - a land nearly free of subdivisions. Imagine!

Today only a few are active cow farms, many are falling into ruins, a few lucky ones get "repurposed." And so, today sometimes gentle horses graze before industrial basilicas, each once a family farm.

Eventually the fog lifted, and my car needed gas.

The Camera's Eye web site has now been updated to reflect our upcoming exhibit:

Without the title to highlight the incongruity, I fear it's just a calendar photo. Thanks. I can't begin to imagine what a horse farm does with such a huge palace.

The exhibition opens in October, but the task of printing and framing will keep me very busy until then. Thanks for you comments. I'd love to see the picture you took.
