Return to contrived reluctance


Click on the old barn to see our original picture story from March, 2014.

Overwhelming reluctance is generally rewarding and makes us wonder why in the Sam Hill we contrived the subject reluctance in the first place.

For me, shooting this old barn and the antique car and tractor on the same premises supports my premise in the first sentence. It was one of those moments when one needs a mirror into which one stares and mutters under one’s breath, you stupid *#?@^*#&!

The site was a treasure trove of “old stuff” which was new stuff in my late grade school and early junior high days. I had, for inexplicable reasons, blithely driven by this site for years, musing that some day I must shoot it. Then in March, 2014, and, as noted above, I finally got off my duff and did the deed.

Take a look at what was once someone’s pride and joy and get an idea of how it was in the years just before rock and roll grabbed the fancy of the nation. Be sure and see the sister story on this collection on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer-dot com.
