Sometimes you go out with a particular intent. Sometimes the photo finds you.

Chicago-based photographer John Batdorff has an neat blog post today – Those Other Moments.

I have a whole host of these. In general, I call them Seeing What I Can See photos.

Came across this scene driving around the back roads of Ocean County, NJ, on Saturday. It was one of those drives where I knew where I was…but I didn’t. I was just following route number signs and my general sense of direction.

And on that winding drive, over some partially snow-covered roads, I came across this abandoned home.

NO TRESPASSING was proclaimed, all official like.

And then the cute sign below it.

Made me pull over. Made me shoot it.

Just one of those “other” moments.

Seeing what I can see…

Canon S110 + Road Never Traveled + Cute Sign = This Weekend Shot.
