Fat man in the bathtub

And I’m sure he would have the blues if he was in this tub. Just another one of the many old bathtubs found throughout rural areas. This particular one has a spring emptying into it, most likely used for cattle at some point. I can’t show this photo without some Little Feat

Not a poet and I know it

Enough haiku silliness, time to get back to normal photography. I’m starting off spring with a nice texturally image of old wood and black rubber. I was drawn to this scene because of the old tire that the tree grew around. Although you can’t see it in this photo that is a real 15′ tree, with branches and everything, that the…

Grazing

Just like the cattle this blog needs constantly fed, and I’m doing a poor job of that lately. My apologies for the lack of new content the past month. This time of winter is my slow time for photography. A slow time for going out and shooting, even though it can be an incredible time for beautiful images, but a…

Back to school

I’ve posted photos of this old schoolhouse before but I had a chance recently to explore it a little more. Plus I had my Eos M camera with the 11-22 lens on me and I wanted the chance to shoot at a wider angle than I have in the past. Beyond that there’s not much else to say. The interior…

I’m going to have to pay up

I think those little ads on this site are annoying (especially since I don’t reap any benefits from them) so I plan on doing away with them soon. Most likely after the holidays, I plan on taking some time to upgrade my site and work on adding some galleries. The blog format isn’t a good way to showcase my work. What I’m not…

I see the snow has returned

The WordPress snow at least. It doesn’t bother me like it does some, and it’s only around for a month or so anyway. We all know that I don’t take myself seriously enough to think the “snow” is distracting from the importance of my blog. 😉 I’m still climbing the ladders of success though and I’ll soon make yet another…

Old and not in the way

That’s the way I feel about old abandoned rural buildings. I want them to stay standing as long as possible. Old barns are as simple as a building can be yet there is a timeless quality about them that a new pre-fab steel building can never have. I feel the same about urban buildings if they have some character or…

A lovely autumn scene from a lovely blog

I have been given a Lovely Blog Award by F-Stop Mama Amy Pantone. I am so honored that Amy likes my blog enough to give it attention on her own blog, that I must proceed with the award ceremony. But first, a lovely autumn scene photo. Now, on to the awards. The guidelines for the One Lovely Blog Award are:…

A little structure is good

Literally, a little structure. One of many hunting stands in the area. Some can get elaborate but most are of the few 2×4’s in a tree variety.  This one, I would say, falls in between.

Fall of no color

I snapped this photo of a rural road today as part of my annual autumn theme photos. Since it’s still relatively early in the season the color wasn’t quite fully developed and a lot of the leaves were still green. The scene was nice but not nice enough. Instead of a wasted shot I wondered what the photo would look like in…
