More B&W Film from the Old Barn

Old tools and parts in a shed - Ilford Delta 100 Film

Here are the remaining pictures from my trip to my aunt's old barn in Utah (see part 1 here). These pictures are primarily from the interior of the attached woodshed. I wish I could have spent more time dissecting the place because it was riddled with interesting artifacts from the turn of the century. Old tractor parts, rusted bolts, hand tools...ah geeze - just thinking about all the gems in this joint makes my shutter finger quiver. I could get lost in them for days.

I love the way old places like this basically turn monochrome with time. Dust and rust slowly engulf everything until the wooden things and the metal things become the same hue. It allows the shapes and details to show through without the distraction of color. And the best textures on the planet are found in places like these. Throw in some beautiful light from a nearby window and I'm in hog heaven. I can't wait to go back with my large format camera and really capture the intricate details in this tiny room.
