I should pay attention. It wasn't until Micaela mentioned looking for a barn in California that I started thinking about this week's Theme Thursday *make sure you check out all the fun with Cari!*
Barns.....ummm, I live in corn country. This seems like such an easy-peasy assignment given where I live. I mean, my friend lives in a converted barn (if only I'd had the time/foresight to drive out to her place for a shot!). So, sometimes when it seems so easy, it starts to wiggle in your brain that maybe you should be more creative than just snapping the first one you see on the way out of town. This is where I start over-thinking.
I very nearly gave you a shot of our Little People farm house, but I'm pretty sure it's packed in the attic still from our basement remodel.
I also had to go to the lovely DMV today (for the record, they're always super-nice, I just hate all errands). The DMV used to be about a mile from my house - they moved it a few years ago to a more "central" location....now almost 40 minutes from my house. I remembered as I was getting ready that there happens to be a unique barn on our way.
I pulled up, took out the camera, realized I had forgotten to stick the memory card back in, thanked the maker that there was a small amount of internal memory and snapped a shot. I thought it would be a pain to get the photo from the internal memory to the removable card, but my camera is a genius and as soon as I stuck the card in, it promptly asked me if I'd like to transfer the internal pictures to the card....why yes, yes I would. Thank you genius camera for making my day a little easier.....especially since I spent from 11am-12:15pm waiting in line for a couple sandwiches from a local place that's closing on Saturday (amazing sandwiches, not sorry I waited!).
The barn I captured is a converted barn that has become a theater. Local actors put on productions on a stage that has audience seating on three sides. The first floor features concessions, the ticket office and a reception area. The upstairs loft is the theater. Seats where the hay bales used to be folks *real seats*! If you're ever in the area, it's a fantastic way to take in local talent.
