Grandma Barb’s This and That

Drive-by barns

I don't usually get to do drive-by shooting of barns as I am the one driving and I have to stop and pull over.  But when I was at my daughter's a few weeks ago she was driving so thought I would give it a try.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well these turned out.   They are all straight out of the camera except for resizing and adding my name.









Linking to Barn Charm 103

Thanks for stopping!  Have a great week!

Until next time.

Barb

p.s.  My grandson thought he had coined a new word.  He said "Grandma Barb there is another barnage"!  I said "Sorry, TexWisGirl has already coined that word". :0)

The drive-bys came out great! I'm such a slow photographer, I always have to pull over and then take several shots... Nice images!

TexWisGirl said...

LOL! ha ha ha ha ha! :)

i LOVE that 3rd one! beautiful harvester and stave silos to compliment the red barn.

Deanna said...

Great drive by photos...I am always the one driving too, so I never get to practice drive-by shooting. Great collection!!

Cindy Adkins said...

Hugs, Cindy

not sure i have heard the "barnage" term ... I knew "TexWisGirl" was a silly one ... she keeps you on your toes that is for sure. wonder when it will be in the dictionary? that is when you know you have made it. ha. ha!!

love the corn & barn shot. that is so cool. love the drive-bys. i knew you could do it. you go girl!! (:

Nice work! I'm so glad that my hubby wants to do all the driving when we are traveling. A goodly share of my barn shots are drive-bys, and if we stopped for every barn I saw we'd never get anyplace.

Terri Buster said...

All very nice barnage- but I am partial to the red, of course. :)

It doesn't matter how you take them, Barb...they're all beautiful!! You take amazing photos!
I just posted "my" barn and one of the events I designed for a client. It turned out beautifully and my client was ecstatic. Hope you like it! :)
Hope you're feeling better. xoxo

Love that third photo with the humongous silos!

Saun said...

Don't you just love hanging out the window going 30 to 60mph trying to take a pic. Nice drive bys....

Mari said...

You did good! I really like the third one.

Jeannelle said...

Drive-by shots are fun! Do some more!

Renae said...

That is a great collection of wonderful scenery, character and whimsy. The driving by gives them motion and frailty that makes us want to hang on.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I do all the driving, too! On our vacation, I saw several barns that I'd like to have gotten photos of but there wasn't a place to pull over. I only stopped for one. Love your drive-by photos, Barb! The red barn is my fav...great silos, too.

Nancy Claeys said...

Love the blue skies in all of these images, Barb. Great collection. :)

Jan n Jer said...

Olive Cooper said...

The second one with the silos and the corn is lovely.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Sounds like a fun day to me! I always love looking at barns as we drive!

EG CameraGirl said...

It IS surprising how well they sometimes turn out, isn't it? I'm glad you got to try it out. :))

Rita said...

You got some nice captures by letting someone else take the wheel.

The third is my favorite also.

Maple Lane said...

Great drive by barn shooting there Barb. I love those shiny topped silos.
I've never tried a drive by.

Kerin said...

Nice shots!!
Four great barns for us to admire :)

Tricia Hays said...

LoL! We can still use the word, tho, I don't think she'll mind! She's a hoot

Great barnage, for sure, Barb, thanks for joining =)

Beautiful barns, Barb! I grew up on a farm, and spent a lot of time in our barn taking care of my horses, and the sheep, goats and cows. It was so nice to hear from you over at my blog today--thank you for stopping by and leaving a sweet comment!

orchid said...

Dearest Barb,
SO sorry for my belated comment, my friend!!!
Oh, "barnage"; I don't know ~age I am in, haha. I hope I am figurig out the coined word correctly.
What splended shots of barn♡♡♡ I wish I could have SLR-camera so that I can take pictures making out of focus places blurry like you do. Well, I don't know if I can manage to use it(^^;)
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

ImSoVintage said...

These turned out great. I feel like I am riding along with you :)

Rose said...

I do a lot of drive-bys while Roger drives...as long as it is not straight out the side window, they do pretty good...these are all interesting and of course makes me wish I could see more.
