Waiting For Spring

Originally uploaded by argusmaniac.
I shot this a year ago in a barn that is being preserved at Matthaei Botanical Gardens. The barn itself is over 100 years old, and had suffered from neglect for a number of years before UM decided it was worth doing some reroofing and repair. Otherwise, it would have been in a very sad state within a few years.

The barn is now pretty well cleaned up inside, and I shot this photo with my Nikon F4, mounted on a tripod, and in aperture priority mode. I think the shadows came out pretty well, especially with the amount of light streaming in through the window. What the photo really needs is a human element though. A model with the ladder would be a good start.
