Old barns are one of my favorite things to take photographs of. They are what made America great—albeit the farmers had something to do with it. While this barn is still in use, there are so many relics that have fallen into disrepair and many have fallen to the ground. This particular barn is in Daviess County, Missour,

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette (My back yard)   12 comments


Silhouettes come in all shapes and sizes. A sunset is a perfect place for a silhouette. This one was taken from the steps of my back yard as a lark. Which one looks better to you? Or do they all look crappy? 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag (Tread)   20 comments


This photo challenge foregoes the straightforward in favor of the twisting and winding.

One never knows what one can find when traipsing down the old gravel/dirt road that passes my house. So, I grabbed my camera and went exploring, expecting to take photographs of the small wildflowers that line the road’s shoulders.

I was nearly back home, after taking many pics, when I spotted this zig-zaggy tread that I had been walking over the entire time. Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees. Well, anyway, here it is.

Comments are welcome.

This fine-looking garden has resulted from the implamentation of the Dr. Jacob Mittleider method of gardening. Seeds started in grow boxes, fed with a special MIttleider mineral mix, soon developed into seedlings, which were then transplanted into specially created and treated thirty-foot rows. For more information, you can visit Jim Kennard’s non-profit The Food for Everyone Foundation.

Jim worked closely with Dr. Mittleider for many years before the good doctor turned over everything to him. Dr. Mittleider has since passed on.

Jim travels all over the world teaching this important gardening method and promises and is in the process of creating a gardening school in Kidder.

For an overview of the Mittleider gardening method, visit What is the Mittleider Method?

Don’t you wish everyone’s garden looked like this?

Comments are welcome.

New Blog: Barns! Barns! Barns!   Leave a comment


I’ve started a new photographic blog and you’re all invited to join in for the fun. This blog is about preserving a way of life that is fast becoming extinct: the family farm.

I’ve just posted my first posting and invite you all to participate. You may find my new blog at: https://barnsbarnsbarns.wordpress.com/

I hope to see you there. I’d love this to be a repository for all things old with respect to family farming, not just buildings.
