Reply ↓ leegschrift October 12, 2017 • 2:00 pm Let’s go to nowhere. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie October 14, 2017 • 8:27 am Hi Leegschrift, Good caption. Thank you. Reply ↓ Cnawan Fahey October 12, 2017 • 12:22 pm As someone who grew up as a Minnesota farm boy, I’ve always been fascinated by the geometry of agricultural structures. This picture captures so many. As others have said the “composition” is so fantastic – the angular structures themselves, the more abstract reflection of those structures, and the amorphous clouds brooding in the background all combine into something quite magnificent. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie October 14, 2017 • 8:26 am Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment, Cnawan. I’m glad this brought back nice memories of your childhood. I am fascinated by these buildings. Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra October 12, 2017 • 11:05 am The reflections in the puddle add so much to the composition. Beautifully rendered, Jane. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie October 13, 2017 • 8:48 am Thanks so much, Allan. The rain was a gift. Reply ↓ Love to hear what you think... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
