Tree-Shadows Quilt

Shadows and Windows

Farmhouse in Sauk County, Wisconsin. The textures in the stone walls combined with the branches’ shadows add an eerie effect to this century old home.

    This is a riot of pattern – a quilt of pattern with the interplay of the shadows and the stone work. In spite of the lack of snow, I enjoy the picture.

    It reminds me of a quilt also! Love how many textures you managed to fit into one photograph. Fantastic job, B.

    I love how you captured the texture and pattern of the wall. It truly does like quilt-like, especially with the shadows from the tree overlaying the pattern of the bricks in the wall. Great work.

    Wow-wee! I really like the stone patterns mingled with the shadows. The square white windows really help contrast and set off the patterns. Very nice capture! 🙂

    I think you do an amazing job of capturing the area where you live (and this is no exception) I love the paleness to almost all of the architecture you capture – the buildings seem worn in but with warmth. It looks like and feels like home. Really beautiful.
