One of the barns on the way to Arthur, Illinois, always photographing from the passenger seat and always have to work on either in Photoshop elements or in Picasa. About midways in the up and down and not quite half way of the barn lengthwise, I see there is a spot from our windshield. By the way, I love the cupola.
I just wanted to post something--anything. Lorelei is here so I am not getting much blogging done. She is all about keeping the flowers and the garden watered. There is an 80% chance of rain tomorrow. I am sure hoping it hits us cause we need it.
A drive by....I don't remember why I didn't see it till we were right there...we were only going about 45 because of road construction. I have been trying to identify it...I htink maybe a 1961 Mercury Comet...
My wisteria blooms finally started to pen up a few days ago. I love these things...even though this one does not bloom the way my mom's did nor the way I see other blogger's wisteria blooms. Mine are short and fat pods of bloom.
Go ahead--click and expand the view. Good thing we weren't grilling out today. This little guy was all about hunting from the grill.
I hope no one is afraid of spiders.
BTW, is anyone else getting the 'HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable' message besides me. I don't get it on all blogs, and not on the ones all the time. The funny thing is, the blog will open just fine...but then this page will go blank and except for this message.
We pass several barns going to and from Lorelei's home. I have never made much of an effort to capture them since we are usually going 60 mph. However, I gave it a try the other day. They have all been worked with to try to make them what they are. The ones featured here all have fences included in the shots.
This is a retirement place for Thoroughbreds....we always think this is such a beautiful view looking on past the barn.
Both of the above were from the highway.
This one is from the back road...only going 30-40 mph. It is a paved back road with no place to pull off. And though there is not a lot of traffic, we never can just stop for me to take photos.
One of the barns we pass on the way to see Lorelei. I may have tried to photograph this one once before, not sure. We were only going approx. 40mph. Even though it is a back road, there is always cars coming and going, so cannot stop as there is not place to pull off.
This one definitely looks better when the view is expanded.
We came across this two or three weeks ago. I don't remember ever seeing it before...I did not think there were any roads in Parke County that we had not traveled. Apparently I was wrong. Actually, I think there is in the norther part of the county...but this was closer to home.
Here we have one from back in March...when there was still a bit of snow on the ground.
