Mosaic Monday - A Test of Time

Hubby wanted to give his vintage car a run and I wanted to take pictures of old silos, so we did both and went for a Sunday afternoon drive.  This is what I found...


These old silos are still standing decades later, reminders of our past. 
Join Mary at Little Red House to view some fabulous mosaics.

I used to take a lot of pictures of old barns and the silos always looked like they would stand forever!

I love old silos, too. We see these all over Missouri.

I like old silos too. I wonder if I saw your footprints when I was photographing a couple of similar ones. (Only kidding. But I do photograph silos.)

What a great mosaic. My husband has some vintage cars he is restoring. One day we will ride around in them I'm sure.

The farms I grew up on had silos...I love these pictures!

Great photos. The wisteria covered silos in my header picture are located in a very busy and heavily populated area of the city. Glad they were left standing.
Have a great week.

Jeanne said...

Wow those are very interesting silos. I don't think I've ever seen any stone ones around here. You're right these mosaics do take us all over! Isn't it wonderful!

Mary Lou said...

Love the silos. To me they are childhood.
Great mosaic.

Wonderful photos - how neat to be able to "save" these wonders from the past. We often take rides so I can get photos of old barns. We don't have so many old silos left - but lots of barns.

That sounds like a fun drive! I love seeing old barnes and silos!

I love the old silos. I grew up in farm country and find those old things interesting. What a fun day!

Those old concrete silos really made a statement at one time. They were evidence of early Canadians' prosperity and their determination to stay and work through adversity.
Beautiful mosaic.

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. It looks like the weather was beautiful too-sounds like a perfect day!

I love your mosaic too!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Dear Jennifer, How fascinating these old silos appear. It is always, I believe, interesting to record industrial architecture from times past. I am only sorry that we were not afforded a glimpse of your husband's vintage motor car.

Beautiful silos and beautiful pictures. Mosaics are the most fun.

I love old silos, barns, windmills and water tanks - they have a lot of charm that is lost in neighborhoods today.

What a great subject for a mosaic and such an interesting subject to capture behind the lens.

Queen of Dreamsz said...

Oh, I love these silos...and the wisteria blooming is so beautiful. It's all over the place up here. I've got to take my camera out with the next time to capture some shots of it.

You really got some great photos!

Thanks so much for your visit on this Mosaic Monday. I hope you are enjoying some fabulous weather!

Hugs,

Wonderful mosaic of the old silos and a wonderful way to spend the day.

Meri said...

Where do you live with so many old barns and silos around?

Les said...

I wanted to stop by and thank you for commenting on my Bloom Day post. I have a fantasy about turning an old silo into a home or studio.

Jen, this is my first visit to your beautiful blog & you've taken some WONDERFUL photographs!! I am loving all the close-ups of the flowers.
Your silo mosaic was very creative, too. We've got one still standing on the farm across the street from us. It was made into a housing development but they kept the silo for sentimental reasons. I'm glad.

Johnny Nutcase said...

These are great! You saw a ton of them, how cool! I like the mosaic you put together. There is an old silo next to the church where we got married, I always liked it! :)

Daniela said...

Cool shots! I love old things, they give a special feeling.

They look like turrets; our agrarian castle ruins.
