Be careful if you count the sheep, you might fall asleep. You’ll have to look a bit hard to find the other two animals… I missed them entirely until I uploaded the photo as I was focused on getting the line of sheep. Going peach picking put us right in the heart of farming land and I captured quite a few interesting moments.
There’s a story that goes with this image revealing how far a photographer might go for the shot. DH pulled over into a safe spot, I jumped out and took a few shots including this one but I wanted to get more of this old barn so I cautiously walked up the two lane road, which had very little in the way of a shoulder for me to stand on, to try for another angle. I couldn’t step off the shoulder and into the grass – which I have done before for some roadside shots – either because there were weeds up to my knees and they went straight down into a deep ditch.
And then I noticed this horrible smell. I looked down and saw what looked like part of a dead deer in the brackish water and weeds. Time to go!!!
(Upon re-reading this post I realized what I did by walking on the narrow shoulder was not too bright. There is no photo out there worth getting hurt for. I will never attempt something like this again and neither should you)
Slipping in a barn that I photographed from the moving car going down the highway when we returned from our trip to the private gardens. I don’t think it’s too terribly abandoned but it has a wonderful rusty patina about it as does the vehicle and the other buildings next to it.
More like corn that you see comes up to a photographers knee. Slipping a barn photo in here to say HAVE A HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Hmmmmm that rhymed too 😉
When anyone compliments me on my work I am so pleased and honored (I’m over the moon when someone orders a print but I digress) because these photos I share with you represent a part of me. A blogger friend mentioned enjoying the rose photos I have been doing but missing the barns from the barn series I had done previously. Well, that just made me smile all over and because of that, even though I am still sharing the rose park photos (it will be people in the park this week) I’m slipping in this preview of a barn not shown before.
I will eventually get around to showing all of it but for now here’s this little teaser 🙂
Monday I posted this image in black and white. For the holiday weekend, I am sharing with you what it looks like in color as promised. Have a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend and see you next week.
