Drive by Shootings: Barns on the Fly…


Well, I had a very nice weekend and a very nice Mother’s Day.  My weekend was full of graduation to dos at Syracuse University where my son Evan received his Masters Degree in Library and Information Science.  I took about 6 million pictures.  Okay, I exaggerate.  I actually took about 600.  And I will get to them soon, I hope.  Meanwhile, I did a quick clean up of a couple of the barns we passed on Interstate 90 on our way to the graduation and that is what I am posting tonight. 

Later I will show you a pic or two of the graduate and his beautiful sister.

Beautiful shots of barns on the fly. Love the cupolas on the first and the silos in the second.
I have a daughter that has a Masters in Library and Information Science. Wishing you son much success with his career.

And wonderful drive-bys they are!

I often show drive-bys on my blog for Barn Charm, it just isn't always possible to stop by these lovely old beauties to snap their portraits.

Wow, both of these are gorgeous! I love the roof on the first barn and the silos in the second shot! Beautiful photos, Barbara! Nice work!

Love your first shot! The barn is huge and I like those cupolas.
Looking closely it shows that maybe they are redoing the barn. It looks like a pile of wood and some new white siding at the back. I guess it's a good way to preserve it but I'd much rather prefer the wood.
Nice shots!
Congrats to your son!!!

Every time I am in the country side I am always looking for barns. I think they have a character and their own beauty.

I love your photographs of these interesting barns very much.

They are all storytelling pictures!!!

Greetings from Kaya.

Do you know anything about the style of roof in that first barn of your fly by? It looks Dutch but I'm not sure even know what that means except for the shape of the roof. :-) Congrats on your graduate! Shew!
