Random shots taken on the trip home from vacation.
I spotted this house on the way to the Outer Banks. I wanted to photograph it on the way home, so I saved the location in the GPS so we could find it again. Yay for electronic gadgets!I wanted to get a closer look, but the property was fenced off. This was as close as I could get. I was a bit disappointed, as I would love to photograph it from the back. I know the upstairs back wall was pretty much gone, as you could see the sky through the front window.
Another “happy accident.” We spotted a sign for a nature preserve, so we pulled off the highway onto a gravel road. We traveled down the road a good ways, but the only nature we saw was a couple of turtles in a ditch. I liked the lines of the crop rows, so I just lazily took this shot out the side window as we drove by. At first I was mildly disappointed that it was so out of focus (I know, not very realistic of me). However, after looking at it again, it kind of reminded me of a Monet painting. I guess you could call this Impressionist Photography. Shameless, I know. :)

I had day off and decided I'd head to the Mogo Zoo just up the road from my parents place. I'd been there once before with my old 200mm lens. This time I had a…
