Sunday stills: Glass

There sure is a lot of old broken glass around the farm. With old windows come cracks and breaks and smashed up bits of glass.

All the windows in the barn are dirty and or broken. A good majority are opaque plastic so the horses/cows could not break them.
Especially dirty is this one in the calf barn where Indigo and Sheba sleep poop. I walked in with my camera to find the bees living in a and take a picture when I looked out to see this through the dirty glass.
Why hello thur human. How did you sneak in here without me noticing?

I was grooming Indigo the other day when part of the window in the old milk house came crashing to the ground (but suprisingly did not smash into pieces), scaring the living daylights out of me.
Then theres this lightbulb out in the barnyard. I don't know what it's deal is nor do I recall it working. Somewhere along the line it got a leak. Water collects in it all the time and stays there even when we only had one day of rain in the whole month of August up until this Saturday afternoon.


I love old barn windows, even the broken ones. They have such character just like the old weathered red wood around it. It tells a story of the years it withstood all sorts of weather wile letting sunlight in. Now birds crash into it because the top is open and the bottom isn't. Silly birds.

Your barn and broken windows and crazy light bulb reminds me of our barn. I really need to wash the windows to let the sun in this winter! Thanks for sharing the photos - all are great.

Nice glass pictures. That light bulb looks unique and old. I love the picture of the horse sticking out their tongue in the post before this one.
