This is not one of my typical shots,  but a couple of years ago I had the opportunity to take images of this old restored barn which housed some wonderful authentic antiques. Although the barn was restored, the glass panes were original and purported to be approximately 100 years old.  I took shots of another barn on the gentleman's property reflected in the old glass window panes, and then turned them into black and white to give a sense of time and place from yesteryear.  I'll be returning to my more typical bird images shortly, lol.

Whatever is deemed one of your typical shots Warren, this is an exceptional example of a creative mind and has a great deal to be admired. Big thumbs up!

You can take trips out of your comfort zone any time you like, Warren - if they are as original and evocative as this one! A great idea, beautifully executed!

Wonderful idea and execution- I love seeing this old glass window, and the barn from the past, as it were. Very clever.

I really like this interpretation, the black and white and the irregularity of the glass surface give the reflection something lost.
