I pass this on my drive to work most days. There are actually quite a few older buildings that make up the farm, but this is the only angle I found that lets you photograph one and still get any of the office building. (The rest of the area is commercial and suburban - there's just this farm amidst it.)

I'm not sure how this one will do - I'm afraid it's quite weak on the technical side of this challenge, although metaphorically I certainly see a contrast here. We'll see....

I will add on this one that the composition I wanted was impossible. I tried a horizontal composition and it looked pretty awful. I'd have liked to get the white building more prominent by shooting from closer in and closer to the ground. However, I would have had to trespass on private property and stand in a marshy area I could smell all the way to where I did take the picture from...I wasn't feeling quite that dedicated, I fear.

There is certainly a contrast between the 2 buildings and in that sense you meet the challenge, I dont however find the buildings or composition particularly interesting, Maybe need to hold the camera sideways while taking shot to add a bit of zip, just a thought and what do I know : ) keep up the efforts

This is one of my favorite subjects, the old and new mix. I wish your old house had not been quite so centered and flat though. 6

I almost missed the white shed, and canned this photo.
