Looking for Barns
On Saturday morning, Steve and I spoke to a group of folks who do regular tours around Wisconsin in convertibles—they assured me they would have the tops up when they toured around southern Wisconsin this weekend.
Directed by Gary & Mae Knowles of Madison, and Mike and Donna Perontka of Green Bay, the group, some one hundred of them, learned a bit about Wisconsin Barns and how to photograph them.
Photographing barns is not only a summer activity, but a red barn in winter makes for a beautiful iconic photo of Wisconsin’s agriculture. I introduced the group to my book, BARNS OF WISCONSIN. Steve did the photos, I wrote the words.
THE OLD TIMER SAYS: Wisconsin is noted for its beautiful old barns.
