I have some fun venturing off the beaten path to find way cool things to photograph. This old barn was discovered in north central Oklahoma last week. Think it has a few stories to tell?
A sunrise peaks through….
Maybe it’s the simplicity of it that got be to “snap-shoot” this curb address, I don’t really know….
One of my favorite church architecture in the area. This is the Methodist Church in downtown Fort Worth…as the sun sets. One of these days I will look up the symbolism in having one tower shorter than the other (although I should know already)
Since I posted so many dag-gum photos last year, I went back a a couple years and found so other photos that might…could work for this week’s photo challenge. At least that way, you long-time followers may have forgotten about some of these. And you know me, I cannot share just one photo:
Two kids that were unknown to me were found tossing pebbles into the great “beyond”…and it looks like there was a conversation to their purpose as well…
A Veteran’s Memorial celebration and honor flyover…look up, up, and “beyond”…
My dad and two brothers during a shore lunch while fishing in Canada; I’ve often wondered, for this brief moment that their together yet solitary pose was captured, just what it was each was thinking “beyond” that present moment….
Oh my! Driving to my usual sunrise country spot I had to first stop to fumble with my camera settings for a colorful sky picture (glad I did – it was nearly gone by the time I got to “the spot”)
While leaving “the spot” for my Sunday morning meeting in Dallas, I first had this one last sunrise shot demanding my attention….
And I only thought I was done! Once again the sunrise had me stop for a picture…this time, at my new sunrise city spot (and I’m here to tell you it’s a whole lot less peaceful, quiet, and safe taking pictures along the side of the road)
It was an unusually windy morning and I figured the sunrise would be less than spectacular. It turned out colorfully OK – glad I was there to see it….
So I went back to the giant spider web this morning and found another creepy-crawler moving into the same territory. I always knew I didn’t like snakes…now I don’t like spiders. He moved…I ran away flailing my arms and slinging my Canon wildly over my head because don’t you know his elastic-man, incredibly far-reaching vicious teeth were about to chomp into me….
What a lousy commute to work I had this morning (don’t ask!). Now I realize this photo is horribly out of focus and without much creative composition since it was “snapped” through the windshield of my truck, but while impatiently idling in stopped traffic this guy spoke to my camera while standing on the side of the road. Love the yellow gradations on the petals of this sunflower.
Many of y’all know I’ve got this thing (more like an obsession) about photographing homemade signs and in particular, those of entrepreneurs that do their own vehicle advertising. This one capped off the day (I was almost out of daylight). I think I can guess what “PATIO COBERS” are based on the rest of his “stylized” advertising (the side of the trailer was even better but I couldn’t get the picture)….
The adventures of a sassy, often defiant, not quite fearless pilot's wife, mother, and photographer. Join me as I globe trot the world using my travel benefits. Here I will share photographs of my travels, chronicle my journeys, and provide useful tips and information.
I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
