I only thought this barn was long-abandoned! It’s near the airport in Rockford, a fairly large metropolis about an hour from Chicago. There are still working farms in the area but many are elbow to elbow now with housing developments and shopping malls. Many others are deserted, left to moulder in the elements. This one looked that way to me… walked up to get the picture and discovered it was very much in use. The dog came charging out and chased me to the car! Then he chased the car to the highway and almost to the on-ramp for the freeway!


I’ve become more cautious now about “abandoned” barns.


This is an experiment ~ a “painterly” version of Storm Light.

Another photoshop experiment (same photo) is Snowfall where I turned summer into winter! LOL

Snowfall is my third-most popular work on the Bubble (somewhat to my surprise…!) with 8,199 views, 82 faves and 18 sales. Conclusion: I guess it was worth the chase! :-)


The barn is still there, or was not long ago when we were passing by. I didn’t feel like a re-run, so I didn’t dare the dog a second time!
