I have always been into "drive bys" and on some recent blogs I have noticed that I'm not alone! We usually go out for drives up the mountains or just around the local area and "sticky beak" at all the lovely houses. I have never thought to actually take my camera with me though so I decided to give it a try this past weekend and take a few shots.

Only a few turned out and I also felt nervous like I was doing something very naughty! Anyway these are a few of the better shots I got. The first one is just around the corner from my house and the other two are about 10 minutes away (they are set quiet far back from the road so hard to get a good shot).
I will try and get some more next drive by...there are so many gorgeous old homes around our area and would love to share.

I love drive-bys. After you do them awhile, you start to get pretty brazen about it, I have to say. I always start out tentative and nervous, and then in the end I'm waving to the homeowners and snapping away. -Julia :-)

The first photo seems very familiar to me... I lived in Richmond from 1985 - 1989 and worked at the main roads department in Windsor and the Windsor Council but it is such a long time ago...Your make over is lovely..You are doing a wonderful job...Take care Cathy
