Default Clues and More Clues

Susan:

Nice image that tells a story the buildings are still in use - tractor, hay, stained ground around the driveway, mowed grass, items hung. Nice composition and use of the lines of the hill.

Old farm buildings! Someday I'll have a car accident while looking at them instead of the road. They are, I think, built of nothing but accumulated evidence. The only thing I would have wished for this photo is that it had moved in a little closer so one or more details were homed in on. For another flavor, one not including evidence, you could have backed off, giving a view of the barns' relationship with the land or animals or even both.

Ditto! Luckilly, I haven't yet. On the way to/from work, there are several very good picture opportunities such as this and I am constantly trying to figure out how I can safely pull off the road and get a picture w/o getting run down!

Same problem here. Once upon a time, most farms were seen only when driving down slow country roads. With the proliferation of super highways, we barn lovers may have become more an endangered species than the spotted owl.

One day I pulled off onto a side road to take some pictures. This particular road probably only sees one car every hour or two. I pulled over as far as I could, but there was a drainage ditch on either side of this narrow road, but wide enough to allow others to go around me. As I was taking pictures, a local comes down the road in his pickup and berates me for stopping in the middle of the road. Needless to say, after he passed, I didn't see another car the entire time I was there.

Beautiful! I like the blueish cast that implies disuse.

I like this photograph. I'm not sure if I would personally have cropped it exactly where you chose, but cropping is a matter of subjective taste so I won't say any more on that.

By the way, I think your new avitar is excellent and I'd like to see a larger rendition of it. That horse is having a great time~
