Images of a vanishing American icon captured by Ernest J. Schweit
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.
