Little Girl, Big Barn

Little Korrine was sitting on the steps of a big red barn in Burkittsville, Maryland. If memory serves,
the barn was serving as an antiques store at the time I visited the central Maryland town in 1985.

Korrine was dividing her time on this sunny afternoon in early autumn between contemplating
the soft round form of her balloon and the activities of a visiting photographer.

Another Burkittsville moment and some information about the town.

    The editing of your photo lures the beholder back into a time that is some decades before the mentioned year of 1985. I´d thought it had been taken somewhen in the 1960´s. An atmospheric work, Steve.

    Because of your description one identifies with the little girl. We all envy the childrens' ability to live in the moment.
