I recall my last visit to the Blue Ridge Institute and Museum in Ferrum, Virginia. It’s a photographers treasure trove of compositions. The above image, and the next one, are from there. The last image is not. The colorful barn located along the Blue Ridge Parkway is one of my favorites. However, today the barn is in poor condition and the paint has faded to where “color” is only a wish. I’m so glad I was able to make this image when the scene was perfect for me. This aspect of photography is what I love the most. Being able to go back through our archives to view how things were. Memories.
