One of our favorite rainy day places to go and spend a day at is Granny and Grampa's Antique Barn. Recently one of their huge barns burned almost to the ground so we went out on a sunny day to see how bad the damage was. You can see some of the charred remains in the background of the photo, looking through the spokes of the old wheel hanging on the side of another one of thier barns.
Photos preserve memory of things that have come before. Eventually the remains of this barn will be bulldozed down and probably a new Barn built. This wheel no longer does its day labour but it is preserved for me to see.
