Country road, take me to the past (A.K.A. Five red barns)

    Newer Older

    Country road 773, South of Calgary , Alberta, Canada

    May 8, 2009 • Taken by Lorien

    Ron, a fellow Calgarian from Flickr, took this photo a while back. Go check it out... I'll wait *s*.

    Now, Please... View On Black... You know you want to *s*.

    Ok. After commenting on his photo and asking where it was taken, Ron explained the exact location, and added: "Check the map link on this page. I know you guys can do a great job with these, look forward to it!"

    Mmm... Doesn't that sound like a challenge to you? It did to us, and we loved it!!! We liked the idea to drive out there to the countryside, locate the spot where Ron stood while taking his photo, and try to recreate it. We just needed to memorize his photo and the instructions he gave us to find the place, and out we went on our "hunt". We found the "treasure", and after few clicks - there it is up there *s*.

    Those 5 red barns are just gorgeous. Old wood and peeling red paint, they silently hold stories of times gone by, and yet don't succumb to the elements. Finding those remnants of the past made us take quite few photos of them, and we'll probably post few more soon.

    So... Ron... thanks to your words, we spent a delightful evening in the countryside, witnessed a gorgeous sunset, and we probably learned few more things about our camera. And, you also gave us an idea for a group... something we still need to work on, but we think might be a fun "Flickr game" for Calgarians. So... Thank you, Ron... so very much!

    Is anyone else from Calgary up for the same challenge????? It's fun, you know *s*.
