The ride home

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 really like both of these! That house is quite the impressive find for a photo... and yes, I agree that electronic gadget was great to have hahaha!!
I do agree with you about the second shot though - it is pretty great! The crop lines make it very fantastic :)

Wow! That house is creepily (!?) amazing!!!
Superbly photographed too. Of course, it had to be B&W. SUperb.
And I agree, that second shot is very interesting and beautiful.
