Weathering Triangles


What should a photo be - a representation of a particular barn at a particular time or something more universal, an arrangement of colors, shapes, and textures with a more abstract expressive purpose? This is the other photo from Saturday - a companion to the barn interior and something of a photographic breakthrough for me in attempting to reach beyond photography as documentation.

More snow today and more shooting. I'm coming to a new appreciation of the difficulty of editing snow and fog images. This image, on the other hand, was open to a wide range of editing choices.
