I originally shot this old school house interior and broken chair back in March of 2012. My wife and I were taking the backroads in northern Illinois somewhere near Rockford when we passed this old building. Of course, I immediately hit the brakes and turned around and started shooting. There was something about the way the light fell on the broken chair. It was not sunny. In fact, it was overcast, quite windy, and cold. I also was struck by the two doors, forcing me to choose which one to enter. Was there a right or wrong decision? Left or right? Good or evil? Yes or no?
Anyway, over the last 4 years, I have processed this shot at least 5 times now and I think I finally have captured what I saw and felt in 2012.
So, it’s not exactly a new shot, but what you see here, is a new finished photograph – made today.
Day 104 of 365.
