“It’s surprising how much memory is built around things unnoticed at the time.” ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

I have a soft spot in my heart for old barns ….

This image was taken on May 24, 2008 with the Nikon D40x and the 18-135mm Nikon lens. Shutter speed was 1/500, aperture was f/5.6, iso 100. I created an hdr image with Photomatix from a single, handheld image, copied twice to evals of +/-2 in Photoshop CS4. A bit of cloning out of electrical wires and there ya go.

Another capture of this same wonderful old barn, apparently no longer in use, taken from the opposite side. It’s located right up the road from from my home in Montgomery County Maryland.

which was featured on the HomePage in August of 2009. yay!

    A lovely old barn dear Lois, we don’t have these things here, our barns are mostly rather ugly functional buildings (with a few exceptions) …

  • Tom, thank you … the barns here in Maryland and Pennsylvania are works of art, so, so many times. And the tragedy is, they’re falling into disrepair … housing developments have sprung up around them, or the family who loved them has given up and moved away. You have no idea how heartbreaking it is to drive past an exquisite old barn, only to not be able to get a decent shot because of stuff all around it. You know, we don’t have your castle ruins … so I guess our old barns will have to take their place. But they won’t last long … so getting snaps of them has become a passion for a lot of photographers. Sort of preserving a lifestyle that’s passing right before our eyes.
