2010 Advent Calendar - 25 of my favourite images

Dec 22, 2010

22. Old barn, near Devon, AB. May 2, 2010.

Sometimes, on spring weekends, Craig and I get up early. We hop in the van and drive south of the city to take pictures of whatever we may find.

I had seen this spot a few years back—it's on highway 19, just west of Devon. We had done a loop south of here, and as we were finishing, I realized where we were. We pulled in and started shooting. The barn is just one of the buildings on the property.

People ask about two things when they see this image: the red and the truck. Yes I adjusted to push the red. Yes the truck is there on purpose. I do have shots without a vehicle in the background, but I liked how it added something to the image.
