this old barn…

This barn is a few miles from my house and I shot this photo in the fall of 2012.  I went back several times to shoot this barn but I was disappointed to see that it had been torn down and the corn fields surrounding it replaced with apple trees.  I’m not surprised about the apple trees.  New York State produces some of the best apples in the country.  But I do miss that old barn.

    So sad…
    But you do have this one and you will always remember this old barn.
    Beautiful image, a bit melancholy too.

      Thanks, Andy. The color shot shows the fields to be a nice golden color with the blue sky in the background. I like that combination but the barn itself is white.

    This is one of the reasons we do what we do, my friend. If not for you, this place would just be a vague memory to someone somewhere, but as you’ve posted it here in such a lovely way, it’ll be remembered for years to come. Absolutely terrific, Ken, great photograph. Happy New Year, my friend!

      Thanks, Toad. I sometimes wonder if there is any historical significance of what we do. I like to think the work I do at the Museum is noteworthy but time will tell.
