CFFC – Barns and Old Houses

These photos were all taken on Mormon Row in the Tetons. We were lucky to get a beautiful clear day on the first try. On the second it had snowed in the mountains and the clouds were low, but we had to go back and get the iconic Teton barn we missed the first time around. 🙂tetonsrs00000095tetonbarn00000097tetonbarn00000098

Architecture and Monochrome – Photography 101

During a break in the rain, I was able to get out and take some photos of historic downtown Albany, Oregon. I don’t know if I like the looking-up shots, but the details on the tops of the buildings are very nice in person. I tried to capture that. I don’t know how successful I was.

3 – Old building with reflection. I wish I would have waited for the car to pass. I would have had a longer sidewalk view.

10 – Another view of #3 with daffodils in the foreground

I found it very hard to take architectural photos without getting a lot of peripheral garbage like power lines and signage. Any pointers?
