Two from our neck of the woods.

Two great shots. That first one looks like it was shot in the fog or a blizzard. It kinda adds an air of mystery to the scene.

The building in the second shot is puzzling to me. I am trying to figure out what its original purpose might have been. It has been modified since it was built as evidenced by the bricked in windows and changed doorway on the front. Do you know any history of the building?

(edit) It looks like the cupola on top is an addition, also. This almost looks like an old firehouse.

Thank you Cal and yesterday. There is a inscription on the stone above the door saying AD 1889 District NO. 6, I think it used to be a old one room school then used as a barn by this farmer.

Great shots. The first one has a really eery feeling to it.

I love the first one. Hard to analyse exactly why - the lighting for sure, the naked tree, the overall composition... I don't understand the definitions of Hi-key and Lo-key, but but I'm a sucker for snowy and foggy scenes.

Bob,

Classic shots in both cases. I prefer the first because of the mystic sense it conveys.

You're back. Hadn't seen you for a while. Welcome.

I just love the first photograph. Very professionally done.

And, I'm with Cal on the second one. It really intrigues me as to what it used to be. The bars by the windows on the left are strange. I would love to know what it was.
