fallen



Some barns fall down one board at a time and other come down in a dramatic implosion caused when a strong wind creates a difference in air pressure.

Many of the outbuildings seem to be held together by a boat of paint, the think molecules bonding to hold the structures in a tenuous battle against the elements. The problem arises that you never quite know which are the most dangerous, so it's best to be wary of all.

It's sad to see these old barns fall into ruin. As you would know better than most, it signifies the end of a way of life.

Is there any sort of way to tell at an early stage that THATIs going to happen? It seems terribly terribly sad, doesn't it?
Terrific photo....

Love the colors in this one, Suzanne. There's a real sense of mystery about this photo.

Just yesterday I saw a barn that had teetered on its brink for months and months. It finally just sat down on itself, roof intact but on the ground. Everything inside a dusty mystery.

Is your computer a Mac G5? because I had, it turns out, a rather common problem/issue recently that is now fixed with a new logic board, luckily under warranty.
