I took this photo in October in a small town not far from here named Volant. This barn was located at the back of the parking lot where my sisters-in-law and I left our car, choosing to walk around the town on the beautiful fall day.
We took a lot of photos that day, and then my sister-in-law Maggie decided to paint a couple of the scenes.
Therefore, we have this beautiful renditon of the same scene:
This painting has so much more life and color in it than the photograph I took.
Here's another example:
This is a very nice photo, I think, and it tells the story of fall and plenty. But when Maggie wielded her magic, this is what resulted:
I love taking pictures and will continue to do so, because it makes me happy. I can't paint as beautifully as this, and maybe you can't either, but creativity is expressed in different ways by different people. If you can't do one thing, you can do another. Everything has its place.
