The Barn on Bonner Mountain

When in West Virginia over the long weekend of October 10-12, the most enchanting subject I photographed was this elegant, lop-sided barn on Bonner Mountain Road in the Canaan Valley.

Barns fascinate me and I never miss the opportunity to photograph one.

I can’t explain this fascination. Yes, I was born and raised amid farms in a rural part of Ireland but I never saw barns there.

I suspect the roots of this fascination may lie deep in my DNA. Just as all human beings hold in our minds an idyllic vision of a rural landscape with rolling hills leading down to a lake surrounded by trees because that’s what East Africa, where all humankind originated, looks like, so I suspect that my love of barns has a similarly deep-seated source somewhere in an ancient, long-lost Ireland.
