Falling Down Barn 24 hours before Demise
This was the image I promised to put up after the poison ivy barn. Unfortunately, when I wake up in the middle of the night and decide to do something, sometimes I don't remember my promises. That's the reason for the shipwrecked boat....house in between the two images. Although I think that is a pretty neat building to get a glimpse of.
This is the barn that I had been photographing for years and that my husband said was going to fall. He was right. Within 24 hours of his prediction it was down on the ground...and what a loss. Well we can remember it in this form which is pretty unbelievable.
My sister Bonnie, who is a professional artist, often does paintings or prints using my photos as inspiration. This was one photo that caught her eye and she did a monoprint of it. You can see this piece by selecting this link...or I'm going to try to make this work with the link software. http://www.etsy.com/listing/39855269/windswept-barn-1-hand-pulled-monotype-of
