It’s Friday… again! Where does the time go?

The subject of today’s post has surely seen it’s share of time. An old barn is now falling apart as the the elements, gravity and time itself begin to win the battle. I came upon this while doing a little rur-ex in Millenbeck Virginia, a small community along the Rappahannock River. This area has been a second home for me for more than 3 decades now. Like many older communities, modern times have arrived and many older structures are left to yesteryear. They do however provide a glimpse in the past and photo ops for folks like you and me. :-)

Camera: Nikon D5000

Lens: Nikkor 18-200mm 

Processing:  HDR Efex Pro -Photoshop CS5 – Photo Tools 2.6

Thanks for all the support, visits and comments. I truly enjoy interacting with each and every one of you.

Be safe and have a great weekend!

    Great color and details Jimi. It’s pretty amazing that walls on the front of the house are still hanging on.
