Old, old eyes

I'm fascinated by barn windows. Especially when they're overgrown like this one. Windows are like the eyes of the barn and the more overgrown, the more sad a barn looks. Unfortunately, we see lots of windows like these, on a barn in Fox River Grove, Ill., that my photo class at Harper College (http://goforward.harpercollege.edu/page.cfm?p=5557) in Palatine recently shot on an unseasonably cold spring morning. 

Abandoned, not forgotten

oHeading through the Seneca-Ottawa, Ill., area on Route 6 the other day, this abandoned barn caught our eye. I've never seen a granary with glass brick windows over the double front like this one. The light is on the flat side, but the little white flowers made for some nice foreground interest.
