Happy New Year to all. It is the proverbial fresh start and a time for contemplation……may your contemplations be thoughtful and the new year kind to you!

The very Art Deco nature of both the buildings and the bridge detail screamed out for B&W processing, in my eyes.

Vacant Barn

I had a sales appointment out in the rural town just north of Prescott and stopped on my way home to take an image of this now vacant barn. I spotted it on my way to the meeting and hoped that when I returned that maybe an entire flock of birds would be sitting on those wires. Now that would have made for more of an image “story” for me!  As you can see, that did not happen. I have another appointment in a week on the same road so I will bring a camera, as I usually do anyway, in the hope of capturing this preconceived vision that I now have in my head.

I never have a vacant mind! lol
