This structure is about fifteen miles or so south of Shreveport on Hwy. 1. I kept seeing it when I would go to Shreveport and thought it was interesting. Crops were planted around it, and I wondered what it used to be and why the owner didn't cut the trees from around it. I stopped one day several years ago and took this picture
In mid-March of this year I went up Hwy. 1 and was surprised to see that the owner was restoring the structure, so I stopped and took this picture. I asked the workers restoring it what it was, and they said it was an old cotton bin. The owner was going to use it for storage.
About two weeks ago I went to Shreveport, knowing it was probably finished, and took this picture. I thought they did a great job restoring this lonely, run down little structure and turning it into something beautiful.
I love photography because it helps me notice things that most people pass by and never see. I was like that years ago, but photography has opened my eyes.
