As I traveled through Spain, I eventually hit the country where I ran into many small towns. These small towns we’re known for their lavish old barns. I noticed many of them had not been updated in a while and still had lanterns instead of lighting fixtures. They housed horses and other animals and thought it was odd because they were not able to work late into the evening due to the lack of light. The houses that were near by did have electricity, and had the ability to connect some wire into their barn tin order to provide electricity to their barns.
After getting some great ideas from all the beautiful authentic restaurants I had been to, I decided to knock on some of the doors of the people who owned these barns and ask them if they would be willing to allow me to install some barn lights in their barns. I told them I would be willing to do it free of charge so I would be able to take pictures of the barns with the lights so I could add them to my portfolio. They loved the idea and told me to go ahead and get started whenever I wanted.
I chose some cool barn lights that would compliment these barns very nicely. It worked out great because there was a barn lighting store that was just on the other side of town that had great deals on lights. I went ahead and got started and it was a little tougher than I originally thought to install these barn lights in these old vintage barns.
After a few hours of work, everything came along successfully and I got some really good pictures for my portfolio. They were also very pleased with the work and told me it’s something they had always wanted to do but couldn’t find the time for. It felt good to do something nice as well as continue to build up my project portfolio to show when I get back home.
