I found this fantastic patriotic barn along a side road in the town of Los Banos on my way back to San Jose from Fresno California. Los Banos is about midway between those two points.
What I truly enjoyed was the cleanliness of the property, that old Chevy truck for sale, and of course the giant American flag displayed promenently on the face this well kept old barn. This was an image I had to capture along my California journeys.
Technically speaking, and according to Wikipedia…
“Los Banos is a city in Merced County, central California. It is located in the San Joaquin Valley, near the junction of State Route 152 and Interstate 5. The population was 35,972 at the 2010 census, up from 25,869 at the 2000 census. The city is served by Los Banos Municipal Airport for air transport access.”
