When one thinks of a barn it might conjure up thoughts of animals, dirt, feed, tools, clutter, and maybe just a catch-all for the miscellaneous—generally not a very exciting place. However, I visited a friend’s barn today and I found the beauty in patterns. They weren’t obvious but when I started looking for them I saw them everywhere. Straight lines, curvy lines, round things, square things, piles, and repetition.
Of course, the cat that lives in the barn is looking at me like I’m nuts, walking around and taking pictures of things she sees every day that aren’t that exciting. In fact, I’ve visited this barn at least once a year for almost 20 years yet today I saw it a bit differently.
Yeah, try untangling that one.
Even the spiders made nice patterns.
Of course, there are the regular things where you can easily see patterns, like nails…
…but then some normal household items that were stacked in the barn, awaiting future use, provided some artistic patterns as well.
I am looking forward to going back to this barn tomorrow and maybe seeing something completely different than the repetitive patterns I saw today. Who knows? Maybe I will find more.
See what happens when you lock yourself in a room for a week!
