BRIDGEWATER, CONNECTICUT – Well I had a great plans to solve the autumn color blues today. I have friend who annually hosts a variety of lunatics who bring catapults, and who compete at catapulting pumpkins across the landscape. We headed out that way mid-afternoon but as a result of a mis-communication with my daughter (my fault) we arrived after it was over. Tough luck. Really tough luck. But I saw this barn on the way back to New York. I shot it primarily because of the complete absence of yellow, red and orange. Leica M9 with 50mm Summilux lens. Six images stitched.

This may be my favorite image from the last 12 months. The light was magical. The name of the building, Pacific Gateway Medical Center, conveyed ironic grandeur. The name of the town, Drain Oregon, suggests hair balls and the like. Wow.
