Dilapidated Barn by Brian Gaynor

The dilapidated barn appears to rise among the cornfields, becoming an integral element of the natural landscape.

Photo taken in Somonauk, Illinois.

Long an avid admirer of artistic beauty, I have only recently embarked on the process of creating art. It is a passion, indeed, and one that provides nourishment for the soul.

Thank you very much for the visit, and I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I have enjoyed the creative process.

    This brings back so many memories since I grew up on a farm 5 miles south of Somonauk. You’ve really captured the essence of this area.

  • Thanks, Jim. The Fox River Valley is an interesting photographic area with plenty of beautiful farmland to my west, and easy access to the city on the east.

    This tone is really wonderful. This is Duotone in photoshop I suppose ?

  • Thanks, Nedim, for the feedback. It was originally a color image and I simply converted it to black and white since the tones stood out.
