Inside An Empty Barn 2 At Wychwood

This is a shot of barn 2 at Artscape Wychwood Barns when it is not being used for an event and it shows the wonderful industrial structure that has been restored and converted into a community centre. There are old photos along the walls showing this barn when it was used for the streetcars and at that time there would have been 2 rows of streetcars running along the 60 metre length of the building with workers bustling around them. It was a really sunny day when I took this pic and the skylight brightness kept hitting the camera so I apologize for the darkness.
Tomorrow I will show you the barn in use!

I for one would like to see the old photos on the wall, of streetcars with workers bustling around them!

A very nice, artsy photograph which shows off your excellent photographic skills! Congratulations!

P.S. The darkness make a nice contrast with the light and the dark is light enough to see the various sections. In Photoshop, you can do a Shadow/Lightness thing which brightens the dark places in a shot.

I'm glad that Toronto is re-purposing this big space. Large open spaces work well for art and community projects.

Excellent conversion, but like Paul I'd love to see it with the streetcars in situ.
