I love this barn. I've photographed it in the sunshine, rain, fog and now snow. I love it in all seasons!
More double sunflare.
Garrison creek... kids favorite fishing hole!
These barns just touch my heart.
Bugscuffle Road...no joke. :) 1 lane bridge over the creek. I had to stop quick, get out...it was icy...go to the back of the car to take the picture, and then navigate back to the car before the car behind me caught up. Hence the reason I wasn't in the center of the bridge.
I really enjoyed my morning with the punk. I learn a lot from him! :)
A few weeks ago we had a snow day. It wasn't much (and definitely not enough to sled on), but it was enough to close schools with fears of icy roads. I decided to take a early morning ride and as I got about a mile down the road, I received a text from punk #2 as to where I was going and could he come. I told him what I was doing and he said he wanted to go take pictures with me...well, how could I say no to that?! So we spent 2 hours riding around listening to Mike Rayson on the radio...it was a good God day! :)
It was still quite early!
Ditch jumping and snowy feet for this picture.
I love these guys. Unfortunately we forgot snacks for them, so they were not happy...but they sure are cute!
I love some good sunflare!
I love this old house. It looks run down (and it is), but it's still lived in! Amazing! (Notice the grand kids bike on the front porch!)
I posted this photo recently...it's pretty, but maybe there's something missing...
And then I had a conversation with a fellow church member with "ideas". He calls me "cheesehead", which makes me laugh. I pray for him because he's a Steeler's fan. ;) All that matters "to me" is the score of Super Bowl XLV! Anyway, after our bantering, we get down to chatting about "how" to mass market certain photos. We're working on a project and we will see what happens. But taking that picture, I added something...
Quite a difference. We'll see what comes of it. I am going to matte/frame it either way. :)
I am just coming back to life. I spent a good part of yesterday vegging on the couch, even though the weather was amazing. I can't begin to tell you how much of a blessing this weekend was. It sure did start early though!
I really was cursing the fact that I am a bad sleeper when I woke up at 345am Saturday morning, knowing one of the guys was already up there starting breakfast. So I got in gear and walked on up to help. It sure beat laying there tossing and turning when I was doing God's work!
Once the sun started to come up, I did sneak out for a couple quick pictures.
My cooking buddy...finally cleaned up from our early morning!
It was still early and it's already busy!
But our free/clean bathrooms were popular all day long! No porta-potties here!
Blessings abound and amazing things are happening in this church!
Finishing up our visit to the fly in breakfast...we had a great time and both boys want to go back next month. (That will again depend on the competition schedule, since every Saturday in October is a band competition.) It was such a beautiful day!
They both seemed to like the yellow planes the best.
Experimental or not, the LAST thing I would do is embroider that on a seat in my plane! ;)
Refueling...cool hat! ;)
Not sure I want to know what his/her "first" obsession is!
The hubs and I stopped into the airport a few weeks ago for a rental car. While we were there, we started talking with the general manager (who is a retired Air Force pilot) of the airport. Punk #1 is all about planes and would LOVE to start flying lessons...hence the conversation. After getting details of lessons, etc, he told us that they have a fly in breakfast every month and that we should come check it out.
Well, because of our fall marching band schedule, I wasn't sure we'd be able to, but it turns out we were able to spend an hour out there. We'll have to find a way to start him with lessons, because he was about to burst.
It was early...but got some good sun flare.
There were about 12 planes when we got there...
I never did an actual count, but this was the main area, it doesn't show the dozen or so behind us in the grass! I was rather impressed how many "fly in" for breakfast!
Watching them land
They come in all shapes and sizes!
Gotta love a small town airport. No "security" and being able to walk right out onto the tarmac...old school. And where they monitor themselves and don't need air traffic control. It was fun to sit and listen to them clear themselves for takeoff. Lots to learn from some awesome people. (A few more pictures still to come.)
