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: On Top (Flowers)   41 comments


This is the home of my dear friends in rural Iowa. In their 90s, and not getting around like they used to, yet they’re always bright with sunny dispositions. In keeping with this, they welcome their mailman with bright and sunny flowers (mailbox off screen to the left).

Comments are welcome.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Family (Modern Family)   46 comments


The modern family is many things. Herein is love, relaxation, being comfortable in each other’s presence. Yet, here is wandering off in different directions, yet still maintaining a closeness bound by something greater than what technology can provide.

Later on we all went downstairs and watched Johnny Depp’s Lone Ranger, a very unusual look at my childhood hero. Still, it was very entertaining and there were some exciting CGI chase scenes. Here is family.

There's no posing this child, not if you wish to get a natural look. Once in awhile, something nice slips through . . . if you wait long enough.

Our MMR-caused autistic child. Not in a smiling mood, but definitely lost in her own little world. Shot from across half the house. Probably should have gotten a 'leetle' bit closer.

The wonder of it all. . . . Even harder to pose than Sariah, but well worth the wait.

Mom always says every photo taken of her catches her with her eyes closed. . . . But I'm quicker on the draw.
