Now THIS is a Big Barn!!

This barn lies along one of the county roads that criss-cross Western New Jersey. I travel this road quite often, as it is one of the "alternate" routes that I regularly take to get to my work. All of the routes are wonderful and very welcomed alternatives to the crazed morning madness of Interstate 78, which is normally teeming with huge trucks and autos heading east to Newark, New York City and the surrounding world ports and distribution centers.

I would estimate that the barn has to be at least 70 Meters long. Its length certainly rivals some of the giant dairy barns in Vermont, and it is certainly one of the largest barns I have seen in New Jersey or Eastern Pennsylvania!

For some reason, I just liked how this looked in B&W better than color.
Happy Tuesday!

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
