This photo was taken on Sunday November 2, 2014 at 4:18 PM
The location was in a rural setting in north western Virginia
The "Take It!" came from a random drive onto a private road leading to a farm. After driving a short while through a field split by the road that was filled with dried corn still standing
on the stalk, I happened upon a set of buildings. One of these structures was small, but had a presence about it that caught my eye. It looked well built and quite old. What soon
became apparent was the strong shadow cast upon its surface.
The above shadow is from a tree that is to the right and not seen. The shadow starts at the ground, goes up the side of the wall, then bends to cross the roof and then by amazing chance
seems to merge with a living tree that is standing behind the building. Mine was luck in somehow being positioned to be able to see all of this small but wonderful show.
The After Take: once again - I am very fortunate to have candid viewers to whom I show most of my work. All enjoyed this picture. Some even suggested that it would make a cool
post card. I sometimes am not sure which I enjoy more, the catch of the photo or the the story telling on how the capture was made and what I think I am able to see. I am
constantly amazed at what others are able to see - that I missed altogether.
My special thanks to the Farmer who gave me permission to photograph this part of his world.
My weekend with these photos had me renew my resolve to get out and explore on a more regular basis. Projects seemingly have been holding me inside too often as of late.
Wishing everyone a grand day.
