Darned poly-tarp...good for only one season!
vz-nostalgia: Oh, how wrong you are, Ray. It's good for one season for a peasant. After that, it's a life time of service for photographers. smile (if they happen to find themselves in this remote farm in the North Georgia Mountains).

Sharp, crisp, great comp. Love the black and white. Well done, Viktor!
vz-nostalgia: I wish sharp and crisp were the criteria of a good photograph, Ms. Kay. smile

vz-nostalgia: No Ms. Philine. That's not a sculpture. I don't take pictures of other people's art. At least, in a non-interpretive way. It's small fragment of an abandoned barn on the old farm in the North Georgia Mountains. I found it interesting how it resembles the landscape, with the "mountain", the "forest", the "rising sun" (or should I say "rusted sun" smile)
You're right, if we don't take a good care of nature, that is, probably, all we'll see in the near future. You know, in Florida, the artificial lawn grass is already popular. It doesn't require mowing, watering or any other kind of care, and it's always green. What a life!

This is exactly when you realize how immense the unseen macro world out there is, Viktor. A world where all those dust mites reign! (Yikes)

I'm not sure why but I can't get the EXIF data to work on your image. I wanted to see how close you were!
vz-nostalgia: That is exactly the reason I turned the EXIF data off, Ms. Ginnie. I want people to focus on aesthetics, not on technicalities (which I think is irrelevant in the age of Photoshop anyway). smile

vz-nostalgia: There are two types of people in this world, Ms. Philine. Those who have adapted, accepted and love the whirling life of a big city, and who feel sick, when they are removed from this environment, even for a short time. The brightest example of this type would be Woody Allen, for whom New York is the center point around which the whole world turns, and for whom a visit to his shrink (A NY slang for a psychiatrist) is as casual as a cup of whole wheat cereal for breakfast.
The other type of folks are those who feel trapped, who longs for walking barefoot on green grass. These are the ones who search for any excuse to create a garden, even on their balcony.
So, Mr. Kunert was not far from the truth. smile

No use to try and figure it out - just weird and wonderful. Shapes and lines.
vz-nostalgia: you talk like a true believer, Louis, who don't question faith, but just accepts it. smile
Viktor...excellent use of contrast in shape, line, texture and of course, tonality. You're creating a fascinating body of work. Thanks for sharing it.
vz-nostalgia: I use everything available around me, Alan, including shapes, lines and textures. That proves to be helpful, as I don't travel to exotic places for my photography. smile

"You know, in Florida, the artificial lawn grass is already popular." Oh, terrible-horrible- mutilated 'landsca! - and I suppose that Mr. Kunert might just hint at such real (no 'utopia'wink artificial phenomena, greens as you have described -or I remember a bronze tree in the Kröller- Müller- Museum/Netherlands which doesn't hardly differ from real trees around!
Funny-satirical and true your distinction!- but I' m afraid there are some human beans who long for the most unpossible, a life in the midst -between both types (like me)?
vz-nostalgia: I must say, "and like me", Ms. Philine. I strive to keep the balance between these two worlds. Not an easy task, I'll tell you. smile
Not sure what to make of this, like Louis I recognise lines and shapes. Thanks for popping over to my new blog by the way, I havent had time to develop it as yet.
vz-nostalgia: you don't have to make anything of this, Nig. It's good enough that you recongnized a few lines and shapes smile

Deteriorating EIFS?
vz-nostalgia: Ha-ha-ha-ha. Only in the architect's mind such a thought would find a place. smile
There is a sort of balance here which suggests that the pieces were put together deliberately. Hence it does feel like a sculpture, but at the same time it has an oddness, as the round shape smashes out of the structure. Interesting.
vz-nostalgia: Indeed, Ms. Jamoula, those pieces were put together deliberately, though not by me, but by some unknown farmer. This is a close up of a run down barn up in the mountains of Georgia.
