Every province in Canada and state in the United States have plenty of rural barns. This old barn in Ontario, Canada is no different than many. But how many of us stop and take a close look at the wonderful texture an image such as this displays. I love the wood, the field grass and even on this ominous day the cloud formations. Just rich in texture and history.
I am personally gravitated by gesture and texture in my images – you can call it a personal passion of mine. Converting this image to black and white enhances texture and thus feel of the image. You can just look at it and transport yourself to a field on a summer’s day with the tall grass swaying in the wind.
