I found this barn this morning only about 50 blocks from home. Now, that's one great advantage to living on the edge of the raspberry prairie. I shot it sort of knowing it "needed" something. I was just a bit too late in the morning for really awesome lighting, but I was able to crop a peice out of it that was interesting enough to create my new banner. I love the different textures: stone, wood, rusted tin, the hole in the roof. The little electric outlet on the front is sort of bothering me. And I don't love the tree barely peeking over. The designer in me wants the tree to tower above the tin roof, or be gone completely.
A random favorite from this shoot was the fence post:
I decided what works here (besides the obvious narrow depth of field, which I do love), is my use of the 3x3 grid -- or 1/3 & 2/3 composition. However you think of it, I've just stumbled upon something interesting. I am kind of laughing my favorite shoot from the morning is a fence post, but hey, what can you do? I have a feeling I'll be revisiting this spot soon. Maybe even sunset tonight? I've got the itch now, for sure.
