Barn Charm

Around here it's really difficult to find a barn that's still standing that doesn't have a metal roof. This one is probably not in use as there is a newer barn behind it. I love the swayback ventilated roof and the cedar shingles tinted mossy green on the north side.

Camera Phone

clearing out the card on my old cell phone I came across this shot taken on a walk last fall.
 I thought that it was a perfect photo to experiment with on my new photo software.
above is the original right out of the phone.

straightened with a sun flare added

first time I've ever added a texture.....I like it.

texture, sepia and film grain added.

One of these will be shared on for Sunday challenges,  which do you think?

cupola - 1

Besides my love for barns, new and old, I adore cupolas. I'll be sharing more of my favorite roof toppers near my home.

This is more of a shed than a barn, but the red roof and the skylight/cupola are incredibly charming.

Dora rolls over

I've been anticipating the big 200K roll over and planned to be the one driving, since I personally put on most of those miles myself. Tuesday I had the scenario down to a science. I had 40 miles left when I came home and I knew DH would be using this Tuesday evening, I knew where he was going and had even calculated the mileage. I told him he could only go to his meeting and home and that would give me a cushion of 10 miles which I planned to use today (Thursday) as I took "precious" to class. Totally forgot that DH ran to the feed store yesterday and this what what I had today.. DRAT those greedy hens. Oh well, Dora the Explorer has served us well and hopefully will for a while more.

365 project

This project has been a fail, at least in the respect of taking a photo every day of the year. I have taken the equivalent of a photo a day but mostly in several photos in a shoot once a week or so. I am not going to give up but make a change for myself  and that is to post 365 photos this year even if they aren't taken once a day. I'm sure no one but me cares so there you have it.

See......I haven't lost my marbles.
