Old barge which at one time was towed by mules along the C&O canal.

Odd thing about this is how the colors instantly tell us it is associated with water . . we are so easily conditioned without knowing it !

Beau graphisme.
Si je peux donner mon avis : moi, j'aurai recadré en enlevant le haut jusqu'à la ligne rouge.

Interesting colors for a barge. Great framing on this too, Elaine.

@Sharon Pleasants: My guess is that since it was used mostly for tourists visiting Washington, DC it was painted the patriotic red, white, and blue. The barge is now dry docked on a part of the canal that is not used and is beyond repair. There was actually an article in today's paper about it and what they plan to do with it which is nothing right now. No money.

It makes for a very nice photo Elaine, I like how it fills the frame .... great colors and detail in this old barge, very nice!
