  18. Awww! I am so excited! I am really excited that my picture got an award… this barn I used to see everyday on my drive home from work. After the tornadoes went through Alabama last spring… this barn was badly damaged… I had always loved it, and after it was damaged, I had to stop and capture a picture of it… Two days later it was burned to the ground because it was too damaged. This picture has a lot of life symbolism in it for me, and I am glad you guys liked it as well!
