Another Perspective


Same barn.  Another window.
Same year, 2008.  Another perspective!

I was thinking about how this barn reminds me of Shutterchance,
with all it's different windows and ways of seeing.

[Today I'm in Atlanta.]

I like the exposed beams showing what holds the building up!
Ginnie Hart: This is the underbelly of the barn, Martin, which I may like even more than the main open floor because of exactly what you've said. Thanks.
Yes!! YAW smile

Great view Ginnie. There must be an electric hazard in this barn with the exposed wiring on the lightswitch!

love it :p
Ginnie Hart: Ruth later commented to say that the wiring is NOT connected to any electricity, so YAAAAY. We can all breathe a bit deeper. smile Thanks, Abisola.

nice shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Dotun! smile
Now that's pretty profound, different windows, different views. Umm time for reflection I think ! smile

J
Ginnie Hart: HA! I promise I won't always make you reflect too hard, Johnny. smile Thanks.
Beautiful thoughts, beautiful view, give's one reason for some soul searching
Ginnie Hart: I guess a bit of soul searching is always good from time to time, Patrick. smile Thanks.

Great textures and patterns in the wood.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Jewlya. Thanks.
This makes me homesick for our old home in New Jersey. We had an old barn just like this - I loved to go sit in the hayloft and look out the broken window into the tree tops. Your window even looks like there are some dormant Virginia Creeper vines around the edge. I love this shot!
Ginnie Hart: I would have loved to have grown up with a barn, Patruska. I can just imagine those memories. I guess we're never too old to be a kid, since my time is now! Thanks.

Old barnes always have my fascination, the way you captured it is even bejond that fascination, I stared long time to see how they built it a long time ago, you stopped the time here and showed a great capture of workmen skill, the lighting is great, you created a nice atmosphere. (but Ginnie would you do me one favour? NEVER hit the button to get light, I cannot picture you with curly hair gringrin )
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHA! That would be a sight for sore eyes, I'm sure, Astrid! Ginnie with buzzed hair. Aren't we glad that Ruth has assured us all that those wires are NOT connected to any electricity. smile

And yes, I hadn't thought of it, but I can see you going over every nook and cranny of that barn to see how it was built. My dad would be standing there with you, with nothing escaping his eye. Dank je wel, mijn vriend, for that image.

Now I have stopped laughing at Astrids comment, which I endorse. It is a lovely capture of a grand old barn, I can see why you like it so much.
Ginnie Hart: HAHA. Ruth has assured us that the wires are NOT connected to any electricity, so we don't have to worry about Ginnie's buzzed hair. smile So glad you can see why I love this barn, Aussie. Thanks.

wood-stone-glass- these are the essential materials of the people -since thousand of years- in order to build up a lodging/ a barn, to protect themselves against....., to collect..., to gather themselves and so on - this barn evoces some 'archaic 'feelings, a feeling of safety and security, too, whereas out of doors and windows it is very cold... biting cold!
What you are saying about SC, is more than right, and this is for me so interesting and moving..!
Ginnie Hart: I love how you have made this place symbolic and timeless, Philine. It DOES evoke that sense of Origin. Thanks for that thought.

What fabulous textures in this old barn. Some snow blowing in added even more.
Ginnie Hart: Yup. Just HAD to get that snow, Mary. Hope you're getting better and better with every new day!

The barn picture's are fantastic Ginnie.
I love them being a country girl and all thatsmilesmile
LOL at Asrtid the electrics do look a bit dodgeytongue
Ginnie Hart: Dodgey electrics, country girl and all that. Wouldn't we all have a ball there, Tracy!!! Ruth has assured us that the wires are NOT hooked up to any electricity. So we're safe. smile Thank you, my friend.

Indeed a good metaphor, especially with the different moods that you capture.
Ginnie Hart: That's what keeps SC kicking, Mike, don't you think?! So many moods and perspectives. Gotta love it. It keeps me coming back for more!

A good analogy Ginnie. There is something very intriguing about windows, whether looking in or out. Like the flash of blue outside the window contrasting with the subtle tones inside.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree about windows...AND doors, of course (where's Red Pen these days?). I HAD to keep this in color because of that barn color outside. Thanks for noticing, Ingrid.

An old place with all it's story ... Nice perspective ...
Ginnie Hart: Story and glory! Thanks, Ann.
Verty nice shot Ginnie. I like the texture and the geometric shapes (square, rectangle, triangle...)
Ginnie Hart: Good eye, Richard! I had to go back and look at it through YOUR eyes. Thanks for that.

I guess this is not one of VZ's architectural show pieces smile

Great shot and you picked the lines up very well in your composition. I have a feeling for this one in b&w
Ginnie Hart: HA! But I bet Viktor would still love this place. I wonder how he'd design a modern barn, don't you! smile

I bet you're right about this looking maybe even better in B&W. I was so bent on preserving that barn's greenish color outside that it never entered my mind! See, that's what I mean about different perspectives. THANK YOU.

Very nice Ginnie: I feel barns resonate with you
Ginnie Hart: Clearly they do, Chris. I didn't know that until just a couple of years ago when I first saw Ruth's barn. Now I can hardly get my fill of them! Thanks.

Assure Abisola and Astrid that the wiring is not connected to electricity. smile

Would any of these barn lovers like to come help us repair the southeast corner for a chicken coop?
Ginnie Hart: I have now assured everyone, Ruth, including myself. It never entered my mind when I was there. smile Wouldn't it be fun to have a bloggers' day at your farm, with all of us helping you with whatever in exchange for a heyday of photo taking!!!

Hmmmm...do you mean "lots of decaying old things, still making an effort to function? [grin]
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHA. It never entered my mind, Ray! But thanks for that thought. grin
There's only one way that buildings like this are created and the essential ingredient is time and lots of it. We all become so emotional by natural decline ...and in my mind rightly so. So that's Why I'm happy with my aging image Ha! richard.
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Richard! We need to wear it with pride. smile Thanks for that confirmation.

There's so much to look at isn't there, from the old peeling pain on the beams through to the stonework and the view through the window.
Ginnie Hart: It's a charmer, for sure, Ellie. I love that place! Good to see you back. smile Thanks and Happy New Year.

Now I have done it, I have a lot of explaining to do to Ruth, I do have a big imagination , but count me in for blogger's day at Ruth, Ohhhh NOW she is happy with me grin grin
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Astrid. You've REALLY done it! But I know her and she would LOVE for all us bloggers to join her on the farm. She'd put us all to work after we had a heyday with our photography. smile
Another lovely mixture of textures and muted colours Ginnie.

If we all took pictures of this barn they would all be so different!
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Bill. That's the beauty of different perspectives on the same thing. Thanks.
Great image. Like the details and composition of this shot. Different perspective too, nicely done.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, John.

I just love these type of shots. I have not the technical know how to explain why but it is just great.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean about technical know-how, Mick. I'm usually in that same boat. I just know when something appeals to me. So, thank you.

Lovely paterns Ginnie...well captured!
When wil you be in Amsterdam again?
Petra
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Petra. Good to see you again!

Donica arrived in AMS this morning before flying tomorrow to Switzerland for meetings the rest of the week, till Saturday. I arrive in AMS on Friday and we'll both be there until February 1 or maybe a week later. Then we won't be back till March because Donica has to have shoulder surgery mid-February.

dunno the original perspective...but i do like this worn out facade...
Ginnie Hart: You'd have a heyday there, Sam, with your camera!! Thanks and welcome back. smile
I liked your comment in the text, Ginnie. Put a dozen Shutterchancers in that barn, and at the end of the day you would not find two photographs the same. As for this particular shot, I love it! All those different textures, especially the rotting wood, really give you lots to look at. I also love the flash of blue on the window frame (cleverly picked up in your own framing), and the `hint` of the view outside. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: That's what I love about SC, Roz. We each really do have our own perspective and by now, most of us can pick each other out. Thanks for your touching comment!

wow! it is amazing how new things when neglected fade and rot away.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Kanyi. And once decayed, it still stands.
I like the textures that you have created. It seems a painting. Shutterchance would not be the same if you here were not!

Time has done a lot of work here...and yet there it stands as a pride survyving soldier of wood and stone...another perspective smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Lina. Yes, indeed. Thanks.
Impressive !
This house is dead, definitivly dead !
A great picture once again Ginnie !!
Ginnie Hart: HA! We won't tell that to Bishop, the farm cat! smile Thanks, Zeb.
