harvest [42/52]

I have to admit I didn’t get out much this week to take photos of everything I’d wanted to. Big fat pumpkins, a trip to the Farmer’s Market … these things were in the cards.

It seems my body had different ideas and elected to spend the later part of the week in bed. ugh.

So I was pretty glad that I’d already gone out earlier in the week, my camera and I, just goofing around. I got a few nice shots.

This house fascinates me. All old houses do. I want to explore and check things out. Unfortunately, I’m always by myself when I’m by this place and way too chickenshit to head in there on my own.

Plus, y’know, a roof falling in on your head or a floor giving out on you isn’t a good thing. Not to mention whatever has taken up residence in there. ack!

I pulled over for a quick shot of some cattails. It was pretty windy and a little difficult to catch them.

Cattails are cool. The remind me of my childhood.

here kitty, kitty ...

This field? Gorgeous.

I wish I would’ve been able to get in lower for that shot. But that would have involved a ten foot ditch and a creek. heh.

And then we have this beauty. Not the first shot I’ve taken of this barn, and probably won’t be my last. I love the way it sits up on the hill like that, old and proud.

She’s magnificent.

And of course, I couldn’t resist adding a few textures. Barns just scream at me to do that ;)

    Love these! Cattails also remind me of my youth. My kids need to experience cattails, must take care of that! And I really love old houses and weathered barns. I live in an area with lots of newer houses, and when I’m driving and I see barns or old houses or glorious fields, I wish I could pull over and capture them. But I either don’t have my camera or I have a car full of kids and there’s no where to stop. *sigh* I sure enjoyed looking at yours! (and sorry your body sent you to bed this week, that bites. I hope you’re feeling better now).

      Thanks Gwen!
      Slip a notebook in your bag and make a quick note when you see a cool location. Then go for a Sunday drive, just you and your camera. I love doing that. It’s totally relaxing.

    This barn would be so cool to shoot from the inside with the light rays beaming through the openings.
