      This was an old barn down the road from my home. It was torn down a few days after I captured this image. I didn’t know that it was going to be torn down. Something told me that I needed to go there and get some pictures. It was actually lightly raining as I took this. Kind of fitting. Just an empty yard now. Michael

        Oh the stories that barn could tell. A commentary on changing societies – once the hub of life, replaced and no longer useful (except as the visual art captured so well, Michael). I hope the old boards find new life in other creations.

        Thank you so much for all your lovely comments. This photo is one of my favourite photos. The shy lady, who could barely walk as a result of having polio as a child, was staring out her friend’s kitchen window waiting for her lift. She was so quiet, one hardly noticed her in the room.

        Every fall I say I’m going to get out and photograph plants that are finished off and maturing their seeds Diane. I think you may have given me the kick I need with these. There’s a certain beauty in a plant at this stage.

      This is in no way as artistic as Charmaine’s portrait but this sweet lady had such a lovely manner about her. She was selling lemonade in the heat by a tourist lookout in Nicaragua and was so gracious in granting me a photo.

        She is just precious!! I want to hear her laugh and give her a hug. I am sure life has been hard for her, but she still made “lemonade” and kept a twinkle in her eye. Your capture makes her very “real” to me.

      I take a lot of photographs of flowers in their prime so it is always interesting to capture flowers that are aged. Here is a shot of freesia, in high key, that I captured last summer:
