Hasp & Pin

Hammered Hasp & Pin
35mm photograph, 1989

Looking lately through a box of old photographs, most circa 1989. I was shooting that year with a newly purchased Minolta 7000 35mm SLR, a 28-70 wide angle zoom. Bracketing like a bastard, making detailed notes of exposures– Mostly, burning a lot of film.

The barn this door opened onto is gone now, fallen in a 1993 blizzard. There wasn’t much worth salvaging; I reused some siding on another building, and planks from the big sliding doors became a benchtop. Dunno what happened to the hasp and pin; wish now I'd kept them. But there’s this.
