“Hay Wagon in Barn" is a black and white art print of a hay wagon in a barn. The barn is located near the Amana Colonies in Eastern Iowa just south of Cedar Rapids. The design of the barn is what caught my eye with the center opened up for a hay wagon to pass through. The time of year was February, so mid-winter with no leaves on the trees. Because of the barren aspect of the trees, I decided to look at this capture in black and white. The monochrome approach captured the mood of the day at this time of year.
The usage of black and white photography as a wall art print lends itself to many different types of interior design, from contemporary to traditional. I think what dictates the look is the subject matter of the photograph and the manner in which it is framed and matted.
