Wisconsin Barn 2006


 


My attempts to capture a passion of mine "Old Barns" while speeding through the roads between Illinois and Wisconsin at 75 miles per hour........Now of course if it was something that captured HIS  attention we'd stop long enough to get that "Perfect Shot" Some things never change huh?? lol lol lol


I love the aged effects that old, falling down barns have. The wood is worn of most of it's color and it always makes we wonder about "days gone by."

Great pictures!  My husband wants to do the same thing and then frame them for the house.  You've given me inspiration!

i've always loved old barns too.. nice, nice pics!   many times i wished i lived in an old barn (fixed inside of course heh).. i think part of the attraction for me is the countryside they are found in too..

    As usual your photos are great. I've tried that drive by photography. All I get are streaks. Photography is not my strength. Still, love Wisconsin and the Dells, and I am surprised just how much Illinois there truly is everytime I leave Chicago. Take care.
