Blame Bionic Woman Jaimie Sommers. At the perfectly impressionable age of 12, I fell in love with Jaimie’s apartment, the refurbished barn loft on the ranch belonging to The Six Million Dollar Man. Jump cut to 30 years later and I am still in love with barns. New barns, old barns, falling down barns. I am sure in coming months I will share plenty of barn pics with you. I am constantly pulling over to photograph or explore old barns and outbuildings, like the one I shot below, found in Prince Edward Country, Ontario.
And obviously I am not the only one inspired by them. I found this gorgeous renovated barn on Hwy. 20 in New York State. Now I don’t know if this is a residence or a business, but I don’t care. I want to live in it, plain and simple.
And I would furnish it taking inspiration from my favourite designer Darryl Carter. Now this is a man who could give Jaimie Sommers a run for her money, even if she can travel over 60mph on those bionic legs.
