I was out driving around the area the other day and I came across this barn. It occurred to me that these structures are disappearing from the landscape and when they are gone, a piece of America will disappear. The traditional barn is being replaced by the metal building and the hay loft is being replaced by huge rolls of hay left in the field or stacked under an open shed of some sort. So, when these buildings give way to the elements and collapse, there will be no more. Every time I drive by a weathered old barn I wonder what stories are concealed within it's walls.
I decided to play "Fun With Filters", so here are a few options that I used from PhotoShop Elements 14.
This is the pallet knife filter. I think it does add a little charm to the scene.
No, I did not take another photo. PhotoShop Elements allows me to add a "lens flare" to the image and place it anywhere I want. It even gives me three lens options. After the flare was added, I used the watercolor filter. It has a similar feel to the pallet knife. Have a blessed day.
