A log cabin, an old barn, a tin roof, and a stone wall

E. Carroll Joyner Park, near Wake Forest, NC, contains some serene paths for walking or bicycling. There are lovely groves of pecan trees. For me as a photographer making a first visit (August 22), the most interesting aspect was the confluence of old man-made structures and the surrounding plants.

As soon as I entered the area, I was drawn to a reflective roof beneath a dramatic sky.

It turned out to be the old mule barn, one of several original farm buildings in the park.

There is a very long stone wall that makes numerous ess curves.

I liked this arboreal lineup.

Another group of trees lined up perfectly outside the window of the restored log cabin.

The wall stretches up this hill and seems to disappear into the horizon.

Here's the outside of the cabin.

After interpreting the cabin in contrasty black and white, I shot the neighboring building with an eye toward abstract shapes, colors, and textures.
