Battlefield Barn

Next to the Aldie Battlefield I saw this old barn–falling down. Three thoughts went through my mind: (1) a wish that I could get closer, crawl (carefully) around; (2) why is it in the condition it’s in–bankruptcy, family death, family squabble…..(3) and finally, I’ll bet the wood in the barn would make great siding or furniture. I am not real happy with the shot. I think the composition and the colors balanced out okay but, it’s just not sharp. It was at 300mm, f/5.8,1/250, ISO500. I need lots more practice. But that’s okay…more adventure! I note I should probably change the date in my camera. I should probably actually just take the whole thing out.

That would be a great place to explore! As you said, “carefully”. Guess I’m getting a little long in the tooth to be climbing around in old barns. Your setting were OK…..it looks old & gloomy, just like it’s supposed to look!
