Barn with Branches

I took this photo in 1985 in the Dry Creek Valley of Healdsburg, California, where I lived for many years.  It was taken for a project that I did at Santa Rosa Junior College taking pictures of the valley… some of which I’ve previously posted to flicker and facebook. It was shot with color film. I think with a filter as well. Was going through the series looking for something that might look better in B&W and with a bit of cropping and correction, and saw this print. It has been one of my favorites for a long while.

As you can see, many of my themes in China… things in disrepair, angles, lines, and contrasts… are also present in this shot.
