Now close the windows and hush all the fields...

All alone... North Austin Texas Farm Shed HDR in Black and White

Reminds me of The Wizard of OZ for some reason. Just on the other side of the toll road from our apartment in north Austin, Texas, was a bunch of old, dilapidated farm buildings that were pleading with me to come photograph them.

Once again I am reminded of a quote from Michelangelo I used for another post title: "A beautiful thing never gives so much pain as does failing to hear and see it......".

If you liked this one, check out this older post: Leaving this old farm house to it's loneliness and decay. It's of another structure from the same area.

NOW close the windows and hush all the fields;
  If the trees must, let them silently toss;
No bird is singing now, and if there is,
  Be it my loss.
It will be long ere the marshes resume,       
  It will be long ere the earliest bird:
So close the windows and not hear the wind,
  But see all wind-stirred.
