This is the small, old barn that goes with the old house from Monday. It is a classic, North Carolina structure of yesteryear right here on North College Road. A large apartment complex is in the backyard and commercial structures are found on the other three sides. However, for this little slice of land near Guilford College, time stands still. The white cat in front of the hedges seemed mighty proud of her abode. Perhaps she was on her way to look for a mouse or two. While this probably isn't a tobacco barn, it is an example of the old rural structures that are disappearing before our eyes. If you are interested, here is a preservation site about barns shared by the National Park Service. We are lucky to have so many barns in the Greensboro area. If you are nostalgic for North Carolina barns, there is a whole flickr group dedicated to them (here).
Tomorrow, the March 1 theme for the City Daily Photo community is cafe chairs. We're try to get out and feature some. At any rate, we'll have something for you tomorrow. Also, if you are local, this will be a might big "First Friday" in downtown Greensboro. Please stop back and see what we can uncover; please stop downtown and help us kick off a great event for art lovers.
