GiST 250: Barn Swallows

Now that Grandma's barn is abandoned, the swallows are building hundreds of intricate mud nests.

The barn on the left in the back is where I photographed the swallows.
There are also owls in the top of the silo. A bleached pile of mouse bones lay at the bottom of the ladder well.

The swallows are in these rafters

Funny how the barn falling apart is representative of how I feel about Grandma who is 99 next month and hanging in there, but the swallows remind me that life is built on impermanence and the resources left behind.
