    This old barn and it's graffiti have been a planned shoot for a while now. Winter hasn't afforded me many opportunities as the sky has been overcast and grey. I finally had an opportunity yesterday at sunset.

    Lovely shot Rob, love the title, I had to look at it large on Flickr to read the graffiti!

      Thank you Diane. The graffiti is small in the image…glad you were able to read it.

    Made me feel a little melancholy when I first saw it. A traditional rural farming landscape dying a slow death watched over by the stark towers of technology. The old and the new side by side. That's progress I guess? Great shot! I'll try to keep believin'.

      Old abandoned buildings and machinery do have that melancholy aspect for me too Graham. The good news…farmers in our area enjoy some of the richest land in the country and they put it to full use. You can't see much of this barn in the summer as the corn is over 10 feet high. They also receive some ridiculous remuneration for having those wind generators on their land.

      Interesting how a photo's point of view can direct the conversation isn't it. Thanks for your thoughts and compliment.

      Thanks Robert. It'd be better with some mountains like around your place.

      Thanks Frog. I'm not done with it yet. I know the light can be better as I've seen some incredible skies there before at sunset…..just didn't have my camera…shame on me.

      Thanks Tobie. I know what you mean. This old survivor is from a less mechanized area I think. We look back at it romantically but in reality they must have been back breaking days.
