Wells patented a truss system for barns in the 1880s that used tall pointed laminated arches to create wide-open interiors; in a break from traditional post and beam construction, Wells' system allowed farmers to drive their wagons directly into, and maneuver around in, the barns. The interiors really are amazing things to behold, and I had a hoot photographing a few of them the other week. Wells and his son built more than 200 of them throughout the state from the late 1880s until 1940, but fewer than 50 remain. Here's a sample, a small-ish jpg from a quick flatbed reference scan.

    Decaying barn of yesteryear. Taken with 4x5 Chamonix 45H-1, Nikkor 75mm at f/32 (could have been f/22, don't have my notes with me) using Tmax100, red 25A filter and processed in Tmax Developer at 1:4. Scanned in with Epson V850 at 3900dpi and cropped to 2.54 aspect ratio.

    Resizing this down from full resolution and size which would be 208 inches long x 81 inches wide at 300 dpi or 17.333 ft 6.75 ft just doesn't do this justice. Even at 6 foot x 2.4 foot at 300dpi would be good since I don't have a wall that is really big enough to hang it on, will settle for a 6 foot version. Although, currently I can only print a 5 x 2 foot print.

    Thanks, Steve! These Wells Barns are incredible buildings. I generally enjoy more off-center interior views, but in this case, the single-point perspective was the way to go. It was a treat being in these barns.

    Lovely! If I look at it long enough, the clouds begin to move.
