Looking Back at a Barn (Weekend Reflections # 70)

Newtown, Pennsylvania~

There are lots of roads like this in Newtown, one lane for each direction and as you can see no place to park. Sometimes I have to be creative if I want to take a picture. This is the view from down the road of the barn with the blowing snow that I posted the other day.


I won't be around very much this weekend or the coming week so I wish you all a great week!

If needed please click the link in the top right corner for Weekend Reflections instructions.
Now lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

JAmes, you are always creative with your pictures, this one is awesome!
I like a lot the fence and the winter scenery.
Hugs and good luck with the kitty friends ( Lucy and Simba )during the next week! :)

Hi James !

Happy to be back on the weekly contest...

Your picture is quite interesting ; I like the way you were able to capture the entire building in such a little frame...

Woody said...

Great old barn!

Yes, this is a source of great frustration. I can't tell you the number of time I drive around looking for a place to pull off to get some shots and can't find one. It can be a little easier on the motorcycle, but that limits the amount of gear I can carry.

JM said...

Well spotted and composed, James!

I've never enough of such snow sceneries, you seem to be lost alone in the world in the middle of an heavy silent.The picture gives a feeling of "a world in a wolrd in a world",with much depth and echos..

Dianne said...

I have the same situation
either it's a narrow back road or a busy town main street
drive-by photography is a fun challenge :)

wonderful scene
fantastic capture

Naquillity said...

you framed that barn nicely with your drive through. and that picture below is breathtaking. thanks for all your well wishes on my blog during my absence. its greatly appreciated.

Carolyn Ford said...

You fit the whole barn in your mirror! This is so good and it looks a tad cooler than OC! But, you would have thought it was cold on the beach too! Thick marine layer, damp, windy...ouch! However, it was about 76 degrees thirty miles inland! Amazing! Back to your photo...super job!

Carletta said...

Creative and framed beautifully!

Fabien said...

Très chouettes, ces plans décalés et et les contrastes.

Xavi said...

Interesting picture of the barn in the rear view mirror!

Gine said...

Tu as le rétro très propre pour obtenir un reflet aussi clair ! Belle image, j'aime bien.

Sunny said...

You are just oozing with creativity - haha!...and I love that the fence is both in the picture and the reflection!
Have a great weekend.

I am no expert but its a beautiful scenery captured very well....

Lew said...

Great look backward! And luckily those back roads do not have a lot of traffic.

Luis Gomez said...

Creative it is!

Hi James,

It's wonderful to see how this meme has grown along with your own photography and interest. I remember when you were asking people if they'd participate if you started Weekend Reflections. It's been a wonderful year-plus for reflection fans. Thanks again!

Bibi said...

Hey, that's GREAT! Snow here, too!

Joanne said...

I really love this area where you live, the scenery is beautiful...

namaki said...

Nice reflection shot of that beautiful old barn. Love the weathered boards on that barn. Would be good shot for barn charm also.

jeannette said...

Love the almost black and white look (not to live in it though:) ).
The day after your observant comment that it was just wrong to have 80 deg. weather in January we went up to Big Bear Lake (it was only in the 40ties there!)

Nice shot James. Try a bicycle when the weather is warm. Easy to park. LOL

London Caller said...

Wonderful frame!
Great composition.

lotusleaf said...

Very creative!

Stickup Artist said...

It is so frustrating not being able to park but you came up with a marvelous solution, framing the barn perfectly in the rear view mirror while capturing the vast woodsy landscape. You have a good week too!

T. Becque said...

A perfect whole within that little mirror! Nice shot. Thank you for your helpful thoughts on Europe. Enjoy your week!

Le Journal de Chrys said...

C'est une bonne idée de pouvoir voir les photos en miniatures maintenant!!!!!

Happy Weekend!

Greensboro Daily Photo said...

For some reason, linky doesn't show a photo to select when I try to upload from webpage (option on right). I have to select the option to pull from desktop (on left). Any idea how I could get the option on the right to show a photo to select?

I'm committed to this meme every Saturday! It is one of my favorites!

chubskulit said...

Beautiful shot. I love pictures through side view mirrors.
