Before moving to central Washington in 2019 I got my country fix by photographing farm land and rural communities north of Seattle. I was living in Marysville, a growing bedroom community with easy access to old barns and farms. The red barn is in the small town of Silvana. I shot it after a record snowfall in western Washington. Most of the snow had melted by the time I arrived. The old grain elevator is the tallest building in Silvana. I found the abandoned railroad tracks to the north in the town of Stanwood.
