Well, that is not a title I ever thought would grace the top of my blog. But, as you may have noticed, I am all over the place with my subjects, so why not a little man-made intimate landscape.
I have been driving by this barn since early summer. I will not go on obvious private property without permission. If there is no nearby house and the land is not marked with signage then I figure it is OK, but with a house right there I needed permission and, as I usually drive by at 5 in the am, I wasn’t going to knock on a door. But yesterday I was going by a little later and someone was just pulling into the driveway so I asked. She called the owner down from the second floor and she gave me permission for then and future times. It turns out that she works at the local country market I frequent regularly.
It wasn’t my plan to shoot at that moment. I wanted more pristine snow and maybe even some tufts of snow on the shrubs and wagon wheel. But the owner said that she had been considering buying and mounting a brand new flag which would kill this image for me. So here it is. I am hoping she is a procrastinator…at least until spring.
I hope this all makes sense and looks OK. My pupils have not fully relaxed after dilation in the optometrist office this afternoon so looking at this bright screen is a little shaky. Good news….the cataracts remain small and unchanged. 🙂
