Flowers, Barns, Rusty Vehicles, and Randomness–06-25-2018

I hit up Caribou and Presque Isle today, just cuz an met up with my friend, Kasey for lunch.  On the drive home I decided to pull over and take a few pictures.

After the lupins, I made a quick pit stop at an abandoned building for a few snaps.

Old Trucks and even older Fire Trucks was the next stop on the side of the road.  I have myself less than 10 mins to shoot what I wanted.  Forces me to be innovated and an economy of shots!

Sometimes your back yard, and a mile radius hands you beauty, you just have to take the time to look.

06-11-2018 – Rusty Remnants

I did some PRN work for Synertx last week, and got out early. So I had spotted this place a while back, so before heading to meet my friend, Jan G, I decided to go snap a few pictures.

If you look around, you never know what you’ll see or find.  A run down house can be extraordinary.  A singular, old mailbox, can be stunning. 

4-8-2018–Barns and Rust

I had some blankets to toss into the laundry last weekend and decided, on the way there, that the sun was just right to stop and check out this old barn in Grand Isle with the Acadian Flag painted on it.

No the paint didn’t bleed!  This is just how lovely the reflection was.

After the laundry mat, I took a lil jaunt up a back road and snagged a few pics of this brilliant old truck and a few other items there.

Don’t ask me the name of this bird, he was knocked out in the middle of the road.  I pulled over, kept him close for a while and he woke up – and sat on my car for a while, then took off!

Snow, snow and more snow!

Echo is still loving the snow, but I’m anxious for the grass!

This was the snow on my windshield.  It looked wicked!

I’ve purchased these cheap focal lens – to do macro photography.  I do need to invest in some lens extensions – while the lens filters do a good job, I’d love a better photo!

A bleary winter day – doesn’t mean there isn’t beauty around!
