My Wife Hates This Picture

I know........really strange image. I wanted to photograph this old shed, but I could not find a way to make it more interesting. I decided to do something that I would not usually do, which is put myself in the picture. But, I am not that interesting either. So, I took an old sheet and ripped it up. You can see what I decided to do with it.

This shed is on an old country road and there is nowhere to park. So, I had to drive past it to a lot at the state park it is in (Boonesborough State Park). I walked back to the shed and set up the shot. I had to hurry because my camera was set up in the road and every 60 seconds a car would pass by. After I got the picture, a car was coming so I had to rush and grab my camera. Here is this crazy person darting across the road wrapped in rags running in front of a speeding car.The people in the car drove up the road and then had to turn around to come back and see what I was up to. By that time I had removed the rags and was walking back to my car. As they passed by, I noticed the passenger was on his cell phone. They drove past me to a drive way just down from where I was and turned around to make another pass to get a look at me. All I could do was laugh. I could just imagine the passenger on his cell phone saying " We just passed some crazy nut all wrapped up in rags doin' who-knows-what!!" Insert your best southern accent.

My wife thinks I look like a terrorist and hates this picture......hence the title.
