Only in Bucks County: Barns of Bucks

After yesterday's blanket of snow,
I got out and took this photo of one of my favorite properties in the area. 
I love this photo... to me, it epitomizes everything Bucks County.

When I first started taking photos here, I focused on the barns and farmland near my house.
I am most attacted to the stone barns of the 1800's and of course the wooden red ones.
Here are some of my favorites!

Love these barns as much as I do?
Here's what you can do to help:
1. Kiss a Farmer.
just kidding!
2. Buy Local Goods and Produce!
You can even take a pledge to spend $20 a week at a local farm
or farmer's market at Good For 20
3. Check out one of ny favorite Bucks County Non Profits,

"It will NOT always be Summer; Build Barns."

Only in Bucks County: A Common Thread

I'm not sure if it's just me,
but my favorite photos of Holiday Time seem to have a common thread.
 And I'm not sure if the right word is timeless or nostalgic; vintage or retro,
but they share a certain look, I believe, from a much earlier time.

Taken in Newtown and Doylestown this year and in 2011, many of them
 look like they could have been taken forty, fifty or sixty years ago.
Or maybe I just seek out what I'm attracted to.
                 (More on this in my next post), but for now,
                     I hope you'll enjoy these -
                                               - and happy, healthy holidays to you and your family!
