Of the land

Of the land

I returned to an old barn that I photographed a month ago. It's as worn and bedraggled as the trees and field around it. The only difference is, in another month or so, its surroundings will spring to life while the barn will still be old and bedraggled.

To the left, just over the rise, are a lamppost and a corner of a suburban CVS pharmacy adjacent to where this barn sits. Over the hill to the right is a subdivision of homes. More a piece of history than anything useful, the barn waits for it and the land on which it sits to make a common transformation into something new.

Love that worn red paint. Great angle.

I have to say that the winter shot of the barn with the snow is absolutely postcard perfect.
