21/52 Singin’ the blues


To paraphrase a song sung by the late, great Louis Armstrong:

I see trees of green … skies of blue … clouds of white …

Bright blessed days … dark sacred nights …

The colors of a rainbow … so pretty … in the sky…

But not on the  faces of people going by …

I see my old friend shaking … I hear winged babies crying …

And then I think to myself, my old friend is dying …

What a not-so wonderful world!

I took these shots on a beautiful day in April. This is my barn’s best side. More pleasing to the eye than my previous post taken on a foggy winter morning in February. But …

Behind all that jazz … she is not growing old gracefully.

From the inside … one can see, hear, smell, feel her anguish.

Singin’ the blues … 😦

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
