There’s something in the barn, behind the doors, that I didn’t notice before. A wheelbarrow, perhaps? This photo evokes feelings of warmth, happiness, and security…which is interesting because I spent the second half of this Christmas weekend rather upset. But a brief moment of reflection and wonder at the sight of the warm barn at dusk makes me remember the weekend fondly.
There’s a playful tension when I look at this photo. Almost like peek-a-boo, with that board only partially locking the door. Ready to open at any moment and let the light shine out into the night. – Emma
