A raw, overcast day made for some nice soft light when we found this abandoned barn complex in Cary, Ill.
The boarded up door, broken windows and overgrown grasses just added to the look of this old beauty.
As I worked on it in Lightroom, I was struck by how great it looked in black and white and how much it started looking like an one of my old, pre-digital Tri-X film images.
Thanks to our photo and barn-shooting friend, Jay, for finding this spot!
We'll make this image available in the American Barn gallery on our web site. ernest j. schweit photography
