They Don't Build Them Like This Anymore...
So many of you are liable to think that because I am a photographer, I notice a lot of things. I tend to believe that, but this weekend I learned a lesson - sometimes I don't notice stuff. This is the interior of the Vermont Welcome Center, in Guilford. It is just a few miles north of the Vermont State line. I have been stopping here for years now. This particular center was built in 1999 and is designed as a post and beam barn, which pays tribute to Vermont’s agricultural roots. On this particular day I suddenly noticed the huge beams that support the building. I must have seen them in all my other stops but I just don't remember noticing enough to take a photograph of the construction. Most of these beams have the adz marks on them, which is cool. This construction reminds me of my grandfather's barns, which I got to play in as a kid, in Guilford, Connecticut.
