The 65 MPH Photo

The Old Cotton Barn

 

Every photo has a story.  Whether the story comes from your interpretation of the scene, or the photographer's, there is something about each and every one which makes it special and unique.

 

This particular scene is a truly a frozen moment in time.  One of those moments where the scene is just a mere glimpse, and the mind may register it and think, wow, that was a nice view.  This scene was photographed from a moving vehicle going 65 mph down the highway.  There was no warning it was coming...no view in the distance of the upcoming field and barn.  On the way to Shiloh, TN last week, we passed by a row of trees and brush and like magic, this wonderful scene appeared.  I managed to get one shot as we flew by it.  It was gone in an instant.  And I just knew since I only got one shot, the photo would stink.

 

Much to my surprise, this one second moment in time was recorded in amazing beauty.  To be honest, I didn't even know the barn was there until AFTER I'd pressed the shutter and I looked back over my shoulder.  

 

This is just one of the beautiful landscapes you'll see when driving through my part of the country.  Many of them are passed by each day by thousands who never truly see what they're traveling by.  I often shoot photos from the car {while my husband drives, of course} in an effort to capture fleeting moments and pleasant views which are often overlooked.  This one, however, was a true surprise. One shot at 65 mph has been recorded in an instant and is now ready to hang on your wall for a lifetime - amazing!

 

InJoy,

Jai

I am a photographic artist living in Tennessee, and I love to spend my days in nature capturing life's most serene and peaceful moments, whether it be in landscapes, watching birds and wildlife, or simply enjoying the beauty of a simple flower. I hope you enjoy my work, and that it will bring a moment of serenity into your day. --Jai Johnson
