Drive By Photography


Papa Miggs and I went for a nice drive yesterday morning to a small town just 40 minuets north east of us   to drop of some thing to our small engines guy who looks after our tractors . I took my camera with us and did a few drive by photos .

                                        Silos of all kinds across the country side , I do like the look of farms and silos .

It is a challenge to take photos when we are  cruising  along on a small highway , you have to see and catch things fast and just take a shot as well as  catch your shot in between hydro poles and to be able to snap the shot with out getting one smack dab in the center of your photo lol !

                                                 Looking through the front window as we are coming down a hill .

Then as we turned and joined the traffic on another road we had a row of motorcycles in front of us  , seems they were out having a nice fall day ride as well ,  some with their teddy bears on the back   probably from a worthy cause lots of bikers do here  , like  the  toys for tots and other charities .

The weather has cooled right off  quite chilly at times as fall has officially arrived in the area and some trees have started to change whilst others are still very green  for now .

As we were moseying along and passed the Tillsonburg airport not far from us  I was looking the other way and Papa spotted this small air craft coming in to the runway for a landing . I was able to get a few shots of him as he got lower and lower and as we were on the road that runs across the field side of the runway for a bit  then the trees got in the way and I couldn’t get him on the touch down  .

Then after that we went into town on our way home and picked  up a few bits n bobs well Papa did I sat out in the parking lot with Miggs near the grass after she needed to go for a quick pee lol .

Then we headed home  .  When we got home and put our bits n bobs away  I  cut and trimmed the grass whilst Papa tidied up his shop and had a fire going as he had some wood scrap's to burn .

Then it was supper time by the time we were all done .  We enjoyed our drive and the sights as well as puttering in the yard when we got home , it was a nice day . Today .. Sunday  we just puttered . I helped  Papa as he  trimmed the Japanese dapple willows back as they grow all over the place like mad and fast   , then he trimmed our big  old Manitoba maple  tree back a bit  to as it had grown since we had done it in the beginning of the spring after it had half of it crack and  fall to the ground . Then  we relaxed for the rest of the  sunny afternoon and into the evening .  The mornings and over night temps have been quite chilly  , this morning it dropped to 8C or 46F   and now  as it is late afternoon the sun is shining  and getting weaker the breeze is cool as we get the breezes off of the lake , temps are only about 19C or 66F  and going to be cooler by this evening ,  so soup for supper for this Sunday evening  , It is also time  for us to get back into  roasts for Sunday suppers now to that the cooler temps are upon us  and having the stove on wont make it to hot in the kitchen now either   and more home made  soups , stews and chilies in the slow cooker , YUMMY !

                                                                                Until next time

You got some great photos of silos and the plane. I'm always saying, slow dow so I can get a photo. It was only 1C when we got up this morning, chilly, but it warmed up as the day went on.

Love all the drive by shots especially the bikes

I can just picture that sort of drive, which we enjoy too. We don't get so many silos, but we get lots of motorcycles.

Hello, lovely scenes from your drive. I love all the barn and farm scenes. Neat shots of the plane. The fire looks nice, it is chilly here this morning. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Great shots. I was never intrigued by motor cycles, but there are sure lots of them in the Texas Hill Country.

Some lovely barns there!

Weekend drives are fun, Elaine. I know what you mean about the drive-by shots as for me poles and wires always get in the way. The silos and hilly roads reminded me of some drives we have taken when visiting PA.

I love driving the backroads too. You have some beautiful countryside there with lots of farms. Lovely photos.
