Leaving Western Mass at last…


Here are a few more of the batch of photos I took on my little jaunt with my daughter Carrie last week.
 
I managed to find one for Friday’s Fences.



Here’s a shot of the Congregational Church in Goshen, Massachusetts.  This church dates from the 1780s.  I think it is an interesting and beautiful building but there is no way that I could figure out, short of standing in the middle of the street, how to take this photo without wires all over the place.  Sure, I could have sat here for hours cloning them out, but at some point, we just have to accept the fact that wires are part of our lives.  Heck, I am surrounded by wires right now and I bet you are, too.


Carrie and I took the long way out to North Adams so we could drive by the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace.  Susan B. Anthony has long been a hero of mine and it meant a lot to me to stop and spend a little time here even though the museum associated with it was closed the day we passed through.  This building is located in Adams, Massachusetts.



It was cold when we were out there as you can tell by the ice hanging off of the Windsor, Massachusetts Town Hall.


Happy March, you all!

I know what you mean about telephone lines. The only solution I know of is called Photoshop. :-)

Wonderful framing of the fence!
These are really some wonderful old buildings you've captures. Lines bother me sometimes too but if you can't get around them I just accept them. :)
That last shot is wonderful in texture and color!

New England cornered the market, so to speak, on this nation's history! I'd love to visit all the historical places out there. Lots-o-snow! I do hate all the wires, they're so irritating... =0

These are really great photos! I love the old buildings especially that church. Yes, wires are everywhere and make up our world. What would we do without them? Have a great weekend. Pam

I hear you on the wire thing - aesthetically I always think it would be nicer without wires in my pictures - but sometimes it is just to dadgum hard to get them removed. Lovely, albeit cold pictures.

It doesn't get much better than barbed wire and snow! Beautiful! The church is awesome as are the icicles hanging from the town hall!

I don't know if it is because I have been absent from blogging for so long or what...trying to catch up a little bit every day.

Anyway, I sure love that first...but then don't count the others less loved either. They just pull at my heart in a different way.
