The trees on the left fading into the distance give a real sense of movement to this photo. The old tobacco barn is perfect in black and white. Driving shots can give some lovely photos.

'Chew Mail Pouch Tobacco' on barns was a common rural sight in the Appalachians in my youth. Advertising was a way to get your barn painted for free. Some folks down the road have this nostalgic decoration on their emporium. It makes me smile when I drive past.
