Stray Dog

"red barn"

So last night I finally got watch a movie I had been wanting to see for about 3 years now. It's called Stray Dog and is directed by Akira Kurosawa. First off, I love his films, they are amazing, and secondly, it starred Toshiro Mifune, (it was the youngest that I had ever seen him in a film), and he was an amazing actor. I love everything that I have seen him in.

So the movie takes place shortly after World War 2 (there are still ration cards) and is about a rookie cop (Mifune) who had his gun stolen from him on a bus. An old timer cop takes him under his wing and together they solve the crimes being committed with his gun. The filmography is phenomenal. There were some shots that took my breath away.

Anyways, the photo above was taken the first day of March, on another photo trip with my Dad. It's located somewhere between Bloomington and Funk's Grove. I love the shape of the barn...the way the roof slants. If you want to, please view this on Flickr.

Tomorrow I am heading back to Normal for Easter and will be back in Ann Arbor by Monday. Since I won't have a computer on me, I will wish you all a Blessed Triduum and Easter now!
