A painter's studio?

Well, we have Red Roof Inns around here, and we stayed in one once in Georgia that looked a lot like this place...

What's interesting here is that the roofs look relatively new but the buildings are aged and decrepit...

(Question: Why do we talk about a horse's hoof, or hooves, but when we speak of plural roofs, we don't say "rooves"? It's an enigma!)

Hay is under these rooves if you really need to know.

Meanwhile have a nice day and watch out for aliens!

Judging from the size of the door, I think a very large tractor is under the roof.

I think that the answer to Jacob's question is that he has brought our attention to one of the thousands of quirks of the English language that exist for no purpose other than to torment foreigners who have the initiative and cosmopolitan ethic to learn English.

Children learn such terms naturally while growing up. All of the exceptions to spelling, pronunciation and word forms must drive foreigners nuts -- and keep many English as a second language teachers employed.

Like CDQ, I immediately thought about an artistic place, a painting studio or something like that..Do you know the answer?..

Interesting question.

Rust?

I give up.

I had to come over here and reply to your comment. I found it exciting. LOL

You should have seen what I really looked like back then. LOL. Not this old and not this plump. In those days my rear end didn't look like two hogs at war in a burlap sack. Instead there was a kind of harmony between the one side and the other. A Waltz. But things began to fall apart when I retired in 1976 and drew my last paycheck.

I am, for sure, trying to find the real publicity photos that went out to all the television stations around the world. Honest. If I do I will see what you think of them. LOL

What an interesting barn. I do wonder what is inside.

Horses?

Tractors--hay--horses--cows.
A very Vermont rural shot I think. Love it.
Tell Jacob you always put on a new roof to keep the rest of the building from falling down. LOL MB

Amin said...

I wonder what is inside.

VP said...

A lot of hay? I'd like to find some horses there, but I don't know if this is the right kind of building.

Whatever it is under the red roof doesn't change this beautifully composed shot! :-)

Amin said...

Is this a garage?

Steffe said...

Probably a few rusty old cars and a cat.

Amin said...

Dear friend say for what this object?

Okay, I finally called the owner to learn what in fact is kept under that roof. The answer:
a friend's boat and three cars (also belonging to friends...one in Bali, one an old boyfriend of Kyla, one a childhood friend of Kyla). In the lower part of the barn can be found garden equipment, and cord wood for keeping the house warm. The owner, Kyla's dad, always envisioned a basketball court in there but as you now know, the space has come to serve a 'higher' purpose.
