I passed by this barn again and couldn't resist another shot. So different without the reflection in the now frozen pond.
If you take the side roads, the off the county roads, you can be rewarded. This is such a lovely barn I had to turn around and go back to shoot it.
In a novella
Blue isn't a color you often see on a barn so when this one caught my attention I stopped. The fog was just a bonus.
I thought I'd be able to find some info about this place online, but I couldn't. There weren't any other buildings left except this one. Someone is using it for storage.
Still as loud
A lovely bright spot in a gray Wisconsin day. A backroad in Lincoln County somwhere.
The call of home
After going by this cabin twice I finally decided to suck it up and get in the snowbank. Where deer can go a person can go and what are gaiters for anyway? Only after looking at it on the computer does it still look used and not abandoned.
Searching in your own time
This barn is in the tiny town of Kempster and after I saw it once I knew I'd be back. The little scrim of sunlight was a bonus.
Some experience required
This barn is off county road D north of Spirit Falls. There was a lot of flooding and the road was pretty washed out, but I found an angle and a bonus reflection. Christmas tree farming is popular up this way and I wonder how new it is for the barn and what kinds of crops were grown here in the past.
Changes are mere moments
I saw this barn while on county road H near Phillips and went back to see if I could get a good angle from the other road. I hoped for something to put in the foreground. Score!
Cupola atop the Ring School
on Cty rd C near 86. It was so cute I had to go back and shoot it. Strange with no steeple though. I'm not in New England anymore.
When visiting Timm's Hill you can easily find Ring School road and what I think is a new location for this one-room schoolhouse that could use some paint.
I liked the levels of depth in this shot of a window in the Ring School.
Us and the sky
Whenever I stop to take a shot like this I wonder how many other photographers have also shot this scene. Red barns are like magnets for us!
Photographer Al M alerted me to this derelict church from the early 20th cty. There's a tiny cemetry just behind it that is also undergoing some renovation with what appear to be new stones, but it's the old stones that are the most interesting. http://www.antigodailyjournal.com/index.php?ID=7200
Bad timing brought the horsewoman home just as I pulled over to take this shot, blocking her normal entrance to the paddock. Sorry lady, but you have such a pretty spread I had to do it.
early morning on Commercial St, Provincetown, MA, I soaked up the atmosphere while waiting for Cafe Heaven to open. It was worth it.
Like a secret-Hobbit hole to a book treasure horde, I found this on Commercial St. in Provincetown. I wish I'd had the time to go exploring.
Hurry up and wait
Historic Crawford Station at Crawford notch New Hampshire. I've often driven by it, but never shot it so before the sun came up I decided it was a good time. I like the busy geometry of this one and the idea of rushing and waiting at the same time.
Normally the lobby of the Mt Washington is awash with people, but at 6:30 am, not so much. Forgive the hotspots in the lights, it couldn't be helped.

both the hotel and the mountain. Due to a first world grievance, I didn't get down there in time for the really good color (no valet to get the car quick), but at least the lenticular clouds were still there. Sorry for the soggy golfcourse foreground.
Come and play with us, Danny
In these hallways if you see a little kid on a big wheel - RUN!
ah the classic harsh sunlight picture of the Mount Washington. I wanted to try for a sunset shot, but couldn't without leaving my husband at the dinner table. And my hiking boots so clashed with my dress.
on the backside of Mt. Washington there are a lot of defunct motels and most have tiny cabins like this. Irresistible.
Hancock-Greenfield covered bridge over the Contoocook river. Yeah, so, it's a cliche. I know, but I shot it anyway.
Abandoned homestead in northern NH. Once again I found myself atop a snowbank.
over the Swift River. A bit of a cliche, what?
early morning in Campton NH. Not sure if the fence is too much, but I liked it anyway.
Blair Bridge on a foggy morning before the sun crested. Campton, NH.
Cabot, VT - so absolutely quintessential rural Vermont that I had to stop.
back to the abandoned Highland farm - shot on Kodachrome 64 in late October 1991. The trees and the fence are now gone. I like that I've caught it here with the trees nearly naked; preparing for winter.
Morning light picks up the color in the leaves that echoes the rusty roof. Plus I love the optical illusion of the lines and the square crop.

Winter view; part of a seasonal study I did in the 1990s. This is a film scan and quite badly magenta.

Abandoned - Highland Farm, Peterborough, NH
No trespassing, which is a bummer. In 1991 I photographed this entire site and there were beautiful trees all through this foreground. Alas it is still empty.

Massabesic Audubon Conservation area. I took about a dozen photos, but this one just seems to capture the place best.

Massabesic Audubon Conservation area. These lucky folks live in a beautiful location. I'm probably not the first to take this shot.
