The suitable foreground was the property of Mooseheart, a residential facility for needy children, built on a 1,000 acre farm near Aurora, in 1913 by the Loyal Order of Moose. I pulled off the road, and as early-morning commuters whizzed by, shot a number of exposures, planning to blend them later into a composite image.
This image shows a turbulent sky and the repose and steadfastness of the fences and buildings that were designed for protection, cultivation and growth. Quite fitting for an organization with a mission such as Mooseheart’s.
