REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

A very sad barn....

Tricia's Barn Charm has led me to a new appreciation of the many barns in my little corner of Oregon (and just across the line in Washington). I haven't been looking for barns lately, and I was afraid I might not have an unused barn image in my files.  However, this sad-looking building is...was...also a barn.  The details are rather fascinating!  Thanks again, Tricia, for opening my eyes to barns!

I love it. I've been out of commission for a while, but am glad to come back to one of your great barn pictures.

oh my. the roof almost sags like netting. :)

Lesley said...

that is quite the undulating roof - complete with all its shingles by the look of it!

Love this one even if it's roof looks like a skateboard wall. Too bad it is not in use. Like the two big tires in the foreground. Very nice composition. Genie

Barb said...

Jan n Jer said...

I just now read your comment/question on my Barn Charm post today... It does kinda look like HDR, but sadly, I don't know how to do HDR yet... It's really funny what it actually is tho! I went to Picnik & Touch Up tab then down to Eye Bright, then adjust the Brush Size & just start swiping it over what you want lightened or to look like HDR... Apply often & adjust Fade to your liking...

Beautifully framed.

Wonderful shot! It looks like an illustration for a fairy tale. You feel like some enchantment is going to happen if you walk closer.

This is so beautiful at least in picture.
Thank's for your comment and it is a fact that I don't shoot people normally, only in overseas ( they can't reach me:) and even then that must be respectful and must not insult anyway the person who is in my picture.

That one is in pretty sad shape. :-(
