It’s been a difficult week with lots of different projects and issues to work on so I haven’t done much with my photography this week. Yesterday I had 15 minutes after lunch to go looking for something to shoot.
Okay, yes this is just a plain old barn but here is the nice thing about barns. They don’t move, they don’t turn their back on you, and they don’t fly away. If you get a blurry image of a barn you have some serious issues. 🙂
the other thing I like about barns is that they all are just a bit different. One of these days when I get serious about photographing barns I’m going to go to the farm-house where the barn is located and talk with the owner. I’d like to know the history, when it was built, who built it, etc.
I met a very nice lady a few weeks ago when I was making calls for the Chamber. She lives alone on their family farm and she has this wonderful old barn that is over a hundred years old. Most of the paint is peeling off and it is bad shape but would make a wonderful photograph.
My fellow chamber person and I were intrigued by her story of the barn as told to her by her Father. I told her that I would like to photograph it when the snow was gone and she said, “You’d better hurry up because its coming down this Summer.” I told her that was very sad and she said, “Yes I know but I can’t keep it up and it’s going to fall down anyway.” I hope I remember to capture that barn soon.
Enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
