There’s something about American flags that I find intriguing. Through the years I’ve pointed my cameras at them many times. Don’t get me wrong, friends. I love the Texas state flag quite a bit, too, but the American flag has a universality. There’s this old barn in Northeast Williamson County that recently got my attention. It’s an elegant pairing. For this “exercise” the barn is presented in both color and black-and-white. Perhaps the color rules the day, but as you know, I like to piddle around sometimes. Presented here are six images, the first before the day gave up its light, progressing to a time well after dark. The color versions are first, followed by the same photo in shades of gray. I do like the night photos, but it’s instructive to look at how the progression of time affects a subject.
