This idyllic barn, nestled in La Honda, California, is one of my favorite scenes on the road to Half Moon Bay and Pigeon Point. 🔍
While returning to San Jose from Monterey, this rare yellow barn enticed me to maneuver an unplanned stop, where I captured the photo that became the basis for this artsy piece.
On an all-day photo shoot at the San Mateo County Fair in the summer of 2003, I captured this iconic shot. I finessed the scene through the use of filters. The artsy rendition clarifies and captures the sense of pungent odor, conjuring memories of childhood adventures at the California State Fair.
I screeched to a halt to capture the sunset bathed front of this classic barn! In the process of finessing the photo, I removed intruding power lines to eliminate distractions while accentuating the fence to frame the scene.
