Detritus

I had not originally planned on posting this shot as it seemed a little too chaotic to me and I usually prefer to focus on details for places like this...but the more I came across it the more it had grown on me.

This is a broad view of the inside of the barn barn in "Shivering". You can see the poor little stuffed bear from "Fragile" on the floor in the foreground and it is also where the photo "Silk Flowers and Rough Edges" which was off to my right and not visible here was shot. I took the shot from the large doorway, or what was left of it anyway. I think what caught my eye initially was the ladder which seemed to stand defiantly among the decay and detritus. I also love the patina of the old wood.

I did not use flash for this although it kind of looks like I did. It was shot a little before 4PM on a pretty overcast day while a light snow was falling. Ambient light and light reflected off the snow was coming through doorways and gaping holes in the walls. I applied curves adjustments to balance tone and contrast.

For a much larger detailed view go here.

Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.
