Watching the barns whiz by....


While we traveled from Massachusetts to New York and then back from New York to Massachusetts this past weekend, I kept myself amused by taking photos out the car window.  I have to admit that on the backroads of New York, one can find many great old barns.  So I snapped away as we moved along.

Taking photos out of car windows is not all that successful most of the time.  And these photos I am posting tonight aren’t all that great, but I like these barns and decided that I will put aside my pride (what little I have, anyhow) and share them even though they are a bit on the blurry side.  I tried to use various processing tricks to disguise that but as the cliché goes:  They are what they are. 

Maybe someday we can take the time to stop when we see a barn coming and I will do them justice,
 but until then….

thank you for sharing the lovely images! I'm always sorry when I see from the car a landscape or else and I do not have the time to photograph it.

Sometimes drive-bys come out quite nicely, as yours have. I love that first barn peeking out from behind the trees. :-)

These came out great for TTWP (through the windshield photography) as I call it. Since I travel with just my cat (who has no interest in photography) I have taken many pictures through the windshield, some good, most bad. You did great!
