Country road, take me home...

It's funny, I've been out here for over 6 years now and I never tire of the beauty of the back country roads out here. In the summer they are lined with wild flowers and I spend most mornings driving them, going back and forth for my petsitting. This morning I stopped quite a few times to try and get a shot and capture them. You are in luck that I got a few shots I couldn't decide between! I'm sure this is a surprise. ;o)

Today we went to get Dylan's haircut and his hairdresser had moved to the new renovated schoolhouse/salon/restaurant/boutique in town. This place was a photographers dream, I had a good time taking some shots although some of them would have been better if I could have gotten better angles and I was a little self-conscious getting down on the floor or getting in people's way to get a shot. We will certainly go back, it was fun and I liked the renovated/antique/modern mix!

so you get more than one shot. LOL
first shot wasn't as crisp as I wanted b/c I forgot about my ISO for a moment...

Next shot I had realized that it needed to be changed:

they had antique chandeliers all over the place and they were all different...I thought chandelier might be a scavenger word, but it wasn't. DRATS!

Busy afternoon and evening ahead so I wanted ot get this up now! My dad built these chairs for my kids. They are a little small now but I can't bear to part with them so they live in my flower bed. :)

Back to the farm!

My client has left town again for the arrival of their first grandchild, and that means more pool time for me! I took this shot this morning and I'm happy to say that my camera is going to stay home the remainder of the day. Today is just one of those days that I'm happy to get my shot early and take a little break from lugging the camera around. It's going to be HOT and that pool is calling my name!

Clock in Station

well, MY interpretation of it! LOL...had to get a new tire today, so I took this shot while waiting in the station! When I told the guys there what I was doing, they agreed with me that it was a service station! ;o)

Body art...

When I noticed what Kya had written on her hand I knew immediately that it would have to be included in my shot of the day. This is the absolute truth about my daughter and the thing I admire most about her.

Happy Summer Solstice!

I was up this morning when it was officially the first day of summer, but when I headed out to petsit, the sun had come up too much (at 6:15...jeez!) and so it was too bright for most of my shots. The rest of my day was busy with movies, errands, and babysitting, so I just didn't have time for a better shot. I'll have to add the settings tomorrow, I'm not feeling so hot tonight and need to go to bed.

Do you have the time...

I figured since I got two scavenger hunt words yesterday I could slide in a picture today that wasn't from the list. ;-) I actually noticed this shot a little over a week ago when I didn't have my camera with me. I was back in this neighborhood today so I was finally able to capture it.

The scavenger hunt list says stall, and I could have taken a barn stall shot, but barn stalls are really ugly to be honest, so you'll have to settle for the outside! ;o)
