15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Woman in the Window, Historic Connecticut Barn and vintage car with a mannequin head in the Window
This is in a rural area in Bethany Connecticut. I saw this farm when I was driving home after having no luck finding a waterfall that I planned to photograph on this day. I came upon this scene on a pretty rough dirt road and I noticed this historic barn with the vintage car in the driveway at the last light of day and I thought it was an interesting scene with the mannequin head in the window of the barn. I thought the owners of the property were clever to put the mannequin in the window. I set up my tripod and took this photo with my Canon 7d and 18-55 mm lens. The settings are f 5.6, 1/40 seconds, ISO 100, at 42 mm. When I viewed my photos and thought I would not have anything for the drive out to this location I was excited and surprised to see how unique this photo turned out to be.
