Barns, Sheds, and Silos

No place is boring, if you've had a good night's sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.
 -Robert Adams, Darkroom & Creative Camera Techniques , Page: 37
At our best and most fortunate we make pictures because of what stands before our camera, to honor what is greater and more interesting than we are. We never accomplish this perfectly, though in return we are given something perfect--a sense of inclusion. Our subject thus redefines us, and is part of the biography by which we want to be known.
 Your own photography is never enough. Every photographer who has lasted has depended on other peoples pictures too - photographs that may be public or private, serious or funny but that carry with them a reminder of community.

Great photos! Barns are so beautiful with their worn and weathered look. One of my favorite photos that HB took is of an old barn. It hangs on the wall in our home and I love it.

Beautiful photos, how awesome that you've been inspired by an exhibition... One should grab inspiration at any given chance!
Photo classes are up next at my art school next week, now I'm even more looking forward to it. ^-^
Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful! I love old farmsteads, there’s just so much history behind them. Love your use of Black & White on these.
