This photograph was taken last Sunday. I drove by this barn at the most gorgeous time of day -- "the golden hour" -- and knew I had to take this shot. I quickly parked the car, grabbed my camera and ran out into the field. I took only four shots because my CF card was full and my extra cards were in the car. I ran back to the car, reloaded the camera, and in those few moments the setting sun had gone behind a cloud and the barn was no longer illuminated.
FYI: Any remnant of a vintage advertisement painted on the side of a building is called a "ghost sign."
Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 24mm, ISO 400, f/10, shutter 1/200s. Curves adjustments, color balancing, slight perspective correction on the barn due to the wide angle lens.
I'm happy to announce that the November/December 2007 issue of Pennsylvania Magazine features 10 pages of photos, as well as the cover shot, from A Walk Through Durham Township. You can order a free copy of the magazine from their website!
