The Wong Barn
Finalist - July 2011
*T and P*


Lumsden SK
This barn has been the backdrop to family pictures and wedding photos, painted by local artists and photographed for its majesty and reminder of days gone by. It has a stone foundation and hip roof that were typical of prairie design at the turn of the century. This landmark has had several owners. Charlie Wong purchased it in 1952 and it remains in the family today. I photographed this barn in 2008 and again this week. It hasn't changed all that much in the last three years.

    Very beautiful in this majestic setting with the fluffy clouds and rolling hills behind. I think in this image it is the "Wight Barn!" (sorry)

Love this, Heather! I love old barns and this one is so unusual and picturesque! No wonder it has been the subject of so many artists! Terrific capture with the lovely blue sky and fluffy clouds and the green rolling hills.

Hurray for you Heather! You know, just noticing the photo again and how the curves of the barn are kind of opposite of the curves of the hill. Really cool! Good luck in the next round!!

Great photographers are not great because of their technique; they are great because of their passion.
Congratulations for your achievement, August, 25, 2011. Merna
