Old Barn on the Way to the Airport
I don’t know that this is my best or most favorite barn shot ever, but I pass this barn every time I head to and from the airport and it’s just been screaming for me to snap its photo. This weekend I made three round trips up to the airport for a dance competition my girls were in near there and I finally had a few minutes in my schedule to jump out and capture the barn.
What do you think? Do either of these shots have any merit?
As a reference point, there are links to other barn shots from this year (so far) below.
Barn Photo #1. I wanted to include some of these yellow flowers in the photo, but it was hard to get a good shot of them and the barm based upon the topography.
Barn Photo #2. Part of the challenge with this shot was a pesky barbed wire fence and No Trespassing sign. Bummer on both counts!
On a related note, I recommend this post from my fellow photoblogger, Lemony Gregghead.

Don’t you hate those foolish efforts to keep us out?!? LOL. I really like both shots, but my favorite is the second one because of the unique composition. 🙂
I know, right? No Tresspassing signs should be relevant only to people who want to do harm. Us photographers, even amateurs like me, should get a free ride if all we want to do is peacefully take pics!
I agree! Go Shutterbug!! 🙂
I love both shots. I think I’d have to scramble through that barbed wire fence at some point and take peek inside. 🙂 The windows and doors are just too inviting.
Thank you so much for the link to my recent barn shot. I really appreciate that.
Dear Lemony, I was definitely tempted to be on the other side of the fence. It helped that I had my 13-yr-old daughter in the car and we were on our way to her dance competition. Another time, the good angel on my right shoulder may not win the same argument with the little devil on my left shoulder! 🙂
I’ve seen why too many scary movies I guess because the second one kind of scares me HAHA! They are haunting and beautiful because of it 🙂 I think I might like the first one a little more lol
I love #1 because of the interesting foreground. I live near the airport but I’m not familiar with this barn!
Lindy, I think it’s on that Barry Road exit that connects I-435 to I-29. If not on that strip of my route, then it’s near it still on the I-435 portion coming from the Kansas side of the metro. You have to really watch for it!
