Old Barn At Sunset
Photograph - Photography
I would always see this old barn when I would go up to Delaware, Ohio to visit my folks at their retirement center. My dad was a wonderful artist all his life and stayed very healthy and active. This past August he had a stroke that robbed him of his ability to speak. It was devastating and very difficult. One day I had to take him to the hospital for a follow-up appointment and we drove by this old barn. I told him that someday I wanted to stop and take a picture of it. He immediately began figuring out where I could park my car to be safe and where I could stand to get my shots. It was broken words, but we did have a wonderful moment of communication which, looking back was such a precious and special moment. A couple of weeks later I went back and took the shots, parking where he had suggested and being safe where he thought I would be safe. I was able to show him these images on his laptop and he was delighted with them. He died in November and I miss him so, but this always takes me back to that day we worked together to get this image: an old red barn resting under the moon at dusk.
