Thursday Challenge: Windows and Doors -

"Red Shift"

It's that time of the week to participate in Thursday Challenge and the theme windows and doors. I fell in love with this version (I have two more) even though, perhaps especially because, the windows and doors kind of disappeared. I've posted a b&w version at No Matter What Shape - The Archive so you can see that I actually did follow the suggested possibilities. A bit of a double entendre also exists ... as the old agrarian way of life slips steadily into the past and as the fading red paint of the barn grows fainter with each passing season, there's a thread that connects physics to this piece in more ways than one. Yes. Really. Look it up!

I like both versions, the black and white and this, maybe this a little bit more, because there's a hint of green and green is the color of spring.

Dig up a cloud of dust with one hoof, snort a little, lower your head and ... CHARGE! With a bellow! Dang! I think I left a piece of my left horn on the tractor! :O

The original photograph was taken in summer, Hélène. The weather is beginning to turn. :)
