Barns – 14

June 24, 2011

We just came back from a short trip to Ithaca NY. From our house it is a little over 4 hours each way. As we continue on the college trail, we took our son to see Ithaca College. He really liked the school so it was a good trip. Now we live in Fairfield County Connecticut, a very suburban area. When I think of NY, I think of New York City and Westchester County. My first thoughts are never of farms. Well this image is quite common on the way to Ithaca.

Ithaca itself ranked  as the #1 “Best College Town” (under 250,000 pop.) by American Institute for Economic Research, Sept. ‘10. I must add that Cornell University is also located there.

    The Ithaca area is really beautiful and other parts of upstate NY, too. I went to Hartwick College in Oneonta – another beautiful area. Nice barn photo…

    I like this a lot – I love the line of grass/wheat drawing my eye toward the barn.

    The soft focus adds a sense of nostalgia.

    I love the way you’ve processed this – looks very dreamy and old-worldy…

    That’s a really large barn, sounds like your trip was very scenic with images like this along the way.
