Project 365 – Day 32 Snowy White Barn

Snowy White Barn

Snowy White Barn

Only he can understand what a farm is, what a country is,

who shall have sacrificed part of himself to his farm or country,

fought to save it, struggled to make it beautiful.

Only then will the love of farm or country fill his heart. 

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

      • Hmmmm, old structures (especially barns in the US) have so much history and therefore draw a lot of appeal and interest – it’s amazing how many people are drawn to them. Yes, I could see this as a painting for sure.

        Thank you, that’s a wonderful compliment – appreciate it.

  1. My grandparents on both sides were farmers. The closest I get to any farm these days is a display at Whole Foods. We have lost the greatest link to nature – our food supply. You have captured this in your photo and chosen quote. A profound insight.

  2. A rather unique barn, windows that high up on the ends, the ladders hanging outside, and the very thick slab it was built on. It’s a lovely barn, in an even more lovely setting, captured very well, and poem goes very well with it.

  3. Your photography is always superb! You’re posts on AABC really stand out. As someone who has had a lot of experience with film, and after a long hiatus from photography, I’m trying to get up to speed in the digital world. Do you always shoot RAW mode? I just downloaded Light Room and am trying to get comfortable with it. Keep those fantastic photos coming!

    • Thank you so very much Paul. Yes, I do shoot exclusively in RAW now. I changed camera bodies this week, and forgot to switch this setting. When reviewing the photos to process, they were all jpgs, and so much photo data was missing. Shooting JPG, the camera does pre-editing of the image for you. RAW captures the full image and you have full control over the post processing. Something as an old film guy you’d appreciate. Lightroom is wonderful fun once you get the hang of it. Just start on the top and work your way down the sliders. The library has so many ways to catalogue your photos it’s amazing.
