05.03.2021 Monochrome Monday

I mentioned the other day when sharing the collapsed barn that I would go back, I hoped, to shoot it again with a moody cloudy sky.  I was able to do that last Friday as we were having intermittent showers and clouds sailing across the sky. I made several exposures as the clouds drifted and chose this one with a slight bright area hovering over the roof’s peak.

I’ll keep tabs on the barn over time and see what comes of it.

  1. You did a good job matching up the clouds with the curve of the barn’s roof.

    Aren’t you worried that if you keep tabs on the barn their weight will make it sink even lower?

  2. It will probably become someone’s den wall. Re-purposed barn wood is worth many times more than new lumber. Meanwhile, as a moody B&W image, it just might become a feature of YOUR den wall. Nicely done.

    • I don’t really have room to hang many more prints. And most are not mine. I should have a spot for it though if I start to alternate things.
      I guess it could be repurposed but I think taking the barn own might be risky so may be bulldozed which could damage a lot of the boards. We’ll see if it does get taken apart. Thanks, Bob!

    The monochrome treatment suits the barn. It’s evocative of other eras; I couldn’t help thinking of Dorothea Lange and others of that time.

    • I agree although I honestly did not think of any other photographers’ work and processed to where I thought it would have the best impact. Now I will admit to subliminal suggestion from having seen all that work in the past. Monochrome definitely presents this differently than the color shot I posted previously with a nice blue sky and green grass and at the time of this shooting cheery yellow dandelions.

  5. Really nice find and B&W conversion! Great sky too. If it were mine I would take out the utility pole and wires but I’m a little OCD that way. 🙂

    • My rule of thumb, and rules were made to be broken, is two-fold. I don’t remove easily recognizable things that alocal would see missing and I will remove things that I could have done by hand…say a beer can in some rocks that I cannot reach. I could reach that can at one time but being old and creaky makes it more difficult. 🙂

    There’s one nearby that has collapsed in almost the identical way – funny! The intense moodiness you gave this works with the state of the building — well done.
