Another scan...of a house not far from here. Again a repeat...but people seemed to enjoy yesterday's petals, so thought I might as well post this. These were both taken several years ago...I don't think I have ever seen pink sidewalks since then....
I have so many photos from Patton's Corner...so thought I would share a few of them here. Patton's Corner is out in the middle of no where. No one is ever around. There is a little shack there, and this is one of the shelves in it.
There is so much stuff at this place...you just would not believe it all. We look and look and still know we miss stuff. Of course, you can tell by this photo that we were there in the middle of the day...I have played with this photo and it is still not great.
I cannot believe I have not posted this photo of this wrench. I have looked and cannot spot it...it is interesting anyway.
Shots from the road...I don't remember the details of shooting these. They were taken in 2008. We were either headed north on a weekend getaway or headed home, so I don't think we stopped. I would have gotten out if we had. However, maybe Roger could have slowed down--we took roads that were less traveled.
I should save this for Good fences, but just going to post it here it was taken the same day.
Too bad you can see part of the dashboard in this shot.
This was taken January 11. With all the warm days we have been having, there is probably no trace of this left. This is the dam at the Mansfield mill....I was thinking it would probably be gone by now but think I might be wrong. Most of the ponds we pass on the way to Sarah's still had ice on them. And we saw geese walking on it, so it is not just a skim.
First of all, this is another barn that makes my list of favorites. But there is no way to pull off and get a good picture. Still, this one is not too bad if you ignor the blurred bales of hay in the foreground.
This one is a little run down, but still I enjoy seeing it.
This one I am calling a barn, but seeing all the vehicles around it, I wonder is it a garage. It is a drive-by taken today.
I cannot believe I done skipped a day posting...maybe this is going to be the new me...skipping days all the time.
Anyway, how about this fellow/gal?
We went for a little drive Sunday--just checking out the fishing spots. At the tailwaters of the dam, Roger asked if I wanted to drive on back...I said it doesn't matter.
He said well, we never know what we will see, and he had not driven 20 or 30 feet when he spotted this eagle. I got out of the Rav and started walking back. The eagle just sat. I don't think I ever got to where there was no little limbs in front of him. But they aren't too bad in these. He finally took off and flew down the creek and lit on the other side.
I took this one across the creek...he had not gone very far. He did not set there as long this time, but flew back up the creek and lit in another tree on the other side. It is/was just thrilling to think we did not scare him so bad that he took off for good.
All three of these photos are cropped and grainy, but still thrilled to get them. It was so dark and cloudy, I had my ISO set at 1600....plus I have fiddled with these in Picasa.
