The Old Barn

You can't always get what you want
For the last few weeks, I have tried to capture fall colors, and each time I have come up short. However, by keeping my eyes open I managed to find something completely different on a cold, rainy morning.
GPS saves the day!
I spotted this while driving west on the highway and quickly dropped a pin on my GPS so that I could find it on my return trip. If I hadn't done this, I probably wouldn't have been able to navigate back to it again.
Even after finding it the second time, I had to think creatively to get to the right spot. I also paid attention to line myself up carefully in order to shoot straight through the barn doors. I had a few off to either side, and it just didn't look right.
I think what works for me is that the final image is almost exactly what I saw when I drove past the scene. It's definitely my style- a simple image of isolation and age.
I added this and a vertical black and white version of the scene to my photo gallery. I have an important change coming to that gallery in the next few weeks that you won't want to miss.
Thanks for looking,
