Just Passing Through

Year 2 Day 137
Week 52 Project - Photo 8
Theme: Simplicity
February 23, 2012

This isn't the most simple of photos...
But the scene and idea is simple.
I pass by this barn every day on my commute.
It's kind of off the beaten path, so I've never really wanted to stop before.
But then I was thinking about this week's theme for Let's Do 52, and I just had to stop.
I wonder what the story is behind this old barn and shed.
They're in the middle of a field...
No homes in sight...
No other history around to give any clues.
Seeing old things like this reminds me of simpler times.
Of a world with no technology...
Where we worked with our hands to be successful.
And the earth gave us what we needed in life.
I wonder what that would have been like...
love love love this! like a painting~~fav

@cheyrebecca Oh my gosh! Did you get Skylanders?! Are you obsessed yet?? lol
posted February 24th, 2012  
@eliserose781 Yes, I got it!!! I worked all day so I've only played a little bit. I was surprised how many characters Wal-Mart had! They didn't have Double Trouble though :( I'll have to go check out another one tomorrow!

@cheyrebecca What my fiancé and I discovered is that if and when stores get a shipment in of the figures, all of them within the same region (within about 50 miles of each other) get the same exact figures. There's only been 2 stores out of about 15 that had something different. Now, maybe it's not the same in the South, but that's how it is near us. If you can't find Double Trouble in the next day or so, let me know. I will have to buy you one and ship it to you! :)

Great processing.. any tips on how you made the colours and lighting behind the barns?
posted February 25th, 2012  
@katteach It's pretty much all in the processing. I took this with my iPhone and edited with the Snapseed app.

@eliserose781 Just saw your reply, hehe! I'm really bad about checking my notifications! I went to another Wal-mart today and they only had one figure :-P That's so sweet of you! But I'll only go for this deal if I can send you money for him!!!
