We must have driven past this old barn off Route 12 near Wauconda, Ill., 100 times, but it wasn't until the owner repainted it white and added an American flag that we really took notice.
And when we did, we tried to challenge ourselves by stretching for a new perspective.
Walking the property, we almost fell over what I'm guessing is an old concrete property line marker.
So we decided to work it into the composition.
It took a few frames before we got it just right, but I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.
We'll make it available in the barns gallery on our web site, www.ernestjschweitphotography.com.
