In Living Color

I love good black and white photographs, especially of people. However, life on a farm is colorful (sometimes too colorful) and I like my photographs to look like what I see. My vision is probably just limited though and I should use that as a challenge to work on my black and white eye. The photographs used in the the Ken Burns film The Dust Bowl are stunning.  The entire film was stunning...and not in a good way.  Wow.

A colorful fall morning.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. Beautiful shots..:-)

  2. These are great pictures to enjoy with a cup o' coffee and a Dunkin donut. Let the new week begin!

  3. Nice set of shots! Love the way you use the fence..........

    Hard to pick, but I think my fave is the first. Love the barely-visible horse!

  4. Great photos, trying to decide if Hank in MIA or is that him near the fence on the right side of the first picture. Love pictures of Hank. That is a lot of wood fence, would be very expensive to do a fence like that today.

  6. Yes, those Dust Bowl photos were frightening. I just read that author's book this past summer so I was eager to see Ken Burn's take on the events.

  7. Green! You still have green grass. I like the way the background is softened by the mist/fog. And the sun kissed sheeps.
    Even your fence lines are artistic! Wonderful lines-curves.
    It is all white here this morning.

  8. I need to take a series of photos of what Hank does in the a.m. He likes to go out and make a lap around the house/perimeter. He runs around checking the smells for about 5 minutes and then runs back to his sheep :-).

  9. Beautiful photos--I love the fence lines also. I can almost smell the morning air!

  10. What a lovely place to live - and all those lovely sheep. So glad you share your life with us in pictures (and words...)

  11. Exactly what Susan said.

  12. Fall in the south....sigh! Someday I want to see it for myself!



    ¸.•*¨*•♪♫♫♪Merry Christmas to you ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥

  13. Great pics. You're still bona fide green! We are white here now. :-/ How about when we get old we just trade farms with you since you like the snow? LOL How do you keep the dirt barnyard so clean? Do you rake it every morning??

  14. oh your photos are just wonderful
    lovely compostion..great values
    and I agree with you about the Dust Bowl....awesome
    caught the eyes

  15. You should do a calendar.


I am so sorry that even though I have word verification set to NO, it's still showing up for some readers :-(. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope you'll still keep in touch. I really, really enjoy your comments.

HOWEVER, here's a tip I just picked up and so far it's worked for me! Try just leaving the word verification blank and just hit "publish". Hopefully not a loop hole that they are going to catch and "fix".
