My friend , and favorite singer John M Schmid, bringing joy and hope during this season. The setting was at the “Legends of Music Barn,” near Millersburg, Ohio, my home town!

Thanks, Rusty Baker, Artist, who graciously hosted this event! He has also painted murals in at least 200 cities and towns, worldwide!!

Amish Barn-Raising

They didn’t want people getting up close during this barn-raising, and since I don’t have a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000, this is the shot I got this morning. this event might only happen in this community, once in three years. Two weeks and one day ago, the original barn was on fire. This is how it looked at 9 am this morning. I suspect it was finished by the day’s end. The Amish church community got together, and by today the farmer had another barn! For years this was done without the help of the machinery, to lift the rafters etc.

This scene blessed me upon entering the village of Walnut Creek, in Holmes County, Ohio!
