California Granary

Wheat Granary

One of the unforeseen developments in my move to Bend, Oregon was the discovery of these amazing rice and wheat granaries along the I-5 corridor of Northern California. While using similar functional components, no two granaries are alike. They differ in structure, age, and orientation, opening up a myriad of photographic possibilities inspiring my interest in creating abstraction out of "common" subject matter.


It's a landscape that has to be seen to be believed. And, as I say on occasion, it may have to be believed in order to be seen.
