Built in the 1870's, this is believed to be one of Spokane's oldest structures.
The roof collapsed in the winter of 08, and the structure was rebuilt.
The barn includes two ventilated storage areas separated by a breezeway that functioned as a grain threshing floor.
Can't believe I just discovered this gem last week!
Hope you enjoy the pic.

Tim, I like the image. Good comp and processing. Maybe it needs a little turn ccw?
Sorry to hear about the medical conditions. Hope things will improve fast.

Thank you, Chris!
You know, I fiddled with the idea of a little ccw, but the actual landscape of this is tilted in reality. But the tilt bugs me in the pic, too! Never know whether to keep it real or make it more pleasing with some post work...

Tim-
I suspected your absence was because of personal matters. I truly hope your wife's condition is resolved favorably. Any woman who puts up with your twisted sense of humor (yes- I remember your long ago- and hilarious- posts ) deserves some good luck occasionally.
About this pic- IMO- go for the rotation. The reality of the terrain is known only by you. Everyone else sees the picture totally out of that context. As such, the image tilts to the right.
Do I detect a touch of IR?
If so, it's very subtle (about the only kind I can normally tolerate).
A great subject, Tim, and I really like your image of it.
Charlie

Hi Tim,
I like the IR feel to this, but the barn roof makes the image for me. Also I like how the darks at the bottom and the top of the image frame the cool middle. I'm not sure what is up, but I gather your wife's health isn't good. If that is the case stay strong, and I hope things are getting better.

Thank you, Charlie and J.R.
I appreciate the well wishes very much.

I really like the color version I have of this, but I'm glad if you enjoy the b/w as well, as I do.

How about the one where you're waiting for the bus, briefcase in hand? I still wake up screaming because I dream about that image sometimes .

All around very nice Tim - wonderful image and setting.

Perhaps just a touch of CC rotation?

Regards,

Bob

Flattered you remember the shot, Charlie! Or maybe remorseful that it gives you nightmares! I'll dig that one up and repost!

Thank you for commenting, Bob!
I do fight the conflict of the more aesthetically pleasing level image versus the reality of this presentation.
