From The Derelict To The Graceful

There's just something about old run down barns. They're such a great subject to photograph! I was fortunate to have my good friend Nancy accompany me today.....which was a very good thing.......because this barn was pretty creepy and I don't think I would have liked to have been here alone. We had fun even though we got kinda spooked. :-)
We then headed to DW Field Park in Brockton MA and enjoyed the beautiful Spring day. This male Mute Swan came over for a visit.

The Specs
The barn photo....Panasonic LX3, ISO 80, 1/400, f2.8, Dynamic Black and White Mode, poster edge filter used in Photoshop CS3

    accompanying you on another photo op drive.

  4. Ha Ha!!!!!! Thanks Nancy!!! (the other Nancy that is). :-)I'm still having nightmares about the man in the parked car at the end of the driveway!!! Don't get me going about the creepiness INSIDE the barn! Oh, can't forget the dead carcass in the property too. EEEEWWWWW!!!! But, it was a fun adventure.....hmmmm.....wonder where we should go on our next adventure? ;-)
