Taken in the midday sun, a couple or three years ago. I don't think I have ever posted it...I used Picasa HDR and Boost to make it passable to post. I don't remember which town this was in, but one on Route 1 in Illinois. I am thinking Georgetown, but not positive.
We had been watching pheasants disappear into the weeds. I was not even attempting to photograph them because the dried weeds and grass was just too much. It took me totally by surprise when this one flew towards the road but behind us.
I was totally unprepared and did not get focused good. He was just there and gone. I have played wit this trying to improve it but not sure I succeeded.
This is an old barn we passed last weekend on our ramble...
Again all those windows. I suppose they are to let light in. There appears to be no cracks between the boards...
I think if I owned this barn I would really try to find the time to cut the trees away from it. It has been, and still is such a beautiful barn. I would love for it to stand another hundred years at least.
When we went down to Madison, Indiana last fall, we took this little drive. Really in mileage, it was not all that long. But we felt like we were in some of the little hills and hollers of my East Tennessee mountain area. We were on roads that we would have been hard pressed to find a place to pass another vehicle.
Anyway, this is one thing we paused long enough for me to try to snatch a couple pictures of. (Did I tell you that the roads were twisting and winding, too?) I have no idea what it might have been...have no idea why the curtain is hanging there. Just an odd little place to run across. Does anyone want to tell me your guess as to what it was used for...I don't even have one this time.
