A Little Country

This weekend I got out bright and early (before anyone in my house was awake) and drove out to rural parts of Murfreesboro, TN.  It’s actually an area that I grew up in, but now I live in the city limits and I don’t get out this way too much. One of my Flickr contacts (harryintheboro) has some wonderful photos of a barn in this area that I was just itching to get out for myself and see. He was so nice as to give me directions and I can’t wait for spring and fall to go back and get more pictures of this barn.

While driving around, this leaning barn caught my eye. It looks like it’s ready to collapse:

I also saw lots of chickens and had to wait for them to cross the road.

And then there’s the world’s smallest post office. It is a real working post office in Fosterville, TN:

One more barn that I liked. It has some sort of Halloween decoration in the top barn opening. Very interesting…..

Winter at Stones River Battlefield

Recently I went back to the battlefield to get some shots. Because it was so very cold this day, I didn’t last very long! The battlefield was having a week long event of re-enactments, tours, and such. I feel for those who volunteered to do this because like I said, I only last about 5 minutes before I high tailed it back home.
