Neglected Autumn

1/250 sec. f/8 ISO 400

This barn was located adjacent to a big field where my daughter's cross country team was participating in the state championships. I took a moment during a lull in the action to mosey over and snap a couple of pics. Her team took the state title, too.

That's a pretty photo with lots of colour against the old grey barn. Congratulations on your daughter's team win. That's pretty exciting!

Most everything looks great when framed by some autumn foliage--as your photo proves. Are you a coach for your daughter's team or just a part of her fan club? Regardless, kudos on the win. I've been following a big brouhaha here in Louisville about a girl's lacrosse coach who pretty tough and disrespectful and bullying to her players. That would be hard for a parent to watch, I'm sure. Hope your daughter has a good coach.

Congrats on the State Championship! My daughter used to run Cross Country at the state park near here. Great barn picture against the brilliant yellow leaves against the leftover greens. Twas a beautiful weekend to get some last minute shots and take a run.

Great for your daughter's run.

You do not look that old to have a child. You have a baby face. Well that is a Moms opinion. My sons say. Mom.

Love this picture. Wow.

Oh I love barns.

They have such Character to them.
