Drive by shootings…


Greg and I have a pretty good system worked out when we go on road trips.  He drives and I don’t.  At least, I don’t drive very much, only when he is really tired.  I don’t mind.  I don’t mind driving, mind you, but I don’t mind sitting in the passenger seat either.  On road trips, especially when we get off of the Interstate, I have my camera armed and ready.

Over the years I’ve found that photos taken out of car windows usually suck…to put it bluntly.  But, I’ve gotten lucky now and then.  I know I can’t take a spectacular landscape when we are moving along at 60 mph.  I just snap things that are interesting to me and when I get them home, I make the decision as to whether or not they need to be tossed into the virtual garbage can.

Sometimes it’s an old barn, sometimes it’s a faded sign, sometimes it’s just an interesting curve in the road.  There’s always something worth seeing if you look out the window.



You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave...

If you see a curve in the road...take it.

That is some BIG barn! I like the way the road and fence run along the bottom.
