I came across this lone barn on my walk this morning in my new favorite-place-to-walk-the-dog, the 780-acre Sanford Farm nature preserve just up the road from our rental house on Nantucket. It was very grey and overcast (we’re starting to viscerally understand why Nantucket is known as “The Grey Lady”), but I thought this barn was reminiscent of Andrew Wyeth’s paintings of New England. I figured the barn needed some sort of foreground subject, however, and the dog was the only subject on hand. I actually got him to pay attention to me by uttering his favorite question: “Do you want to go for a walk?”
Of course, he does not possess the cognitive sophistication to understand that he was, in fact, ON a walk, but the question always gets him to perk up his ears and tilt his head at a rakish angle.
I added a gold graduated filter to liven up an otherwise completely uninteresting sky. I hope Andrew Wyeth would understand.
