30 Days of Photos – Day 25 Landscapes

Blue skies and old barns make for beautiful landscapes. On a day that several are shopping, we spent the day outside with cows.

Day 25 – Landscapes

This is something I struggle with. Landscapes are a beautiful thing to photograph, but it is not something I feel that I really capture the true beauty of. Today as we were headed up to the red barn to work a group of cows, I stopped. The sky, the few clouds, the barn and the windmill just spoke to me. It was my goal to capture what I saw and at the end of the day I will enjoy it more than any time spent in a Black Friday shopping line.

30 Days of Photos – Day 17 History

Today I took a bit of time to visit a piece of family history. History that has been in our family for over 100 years.

Day 17 – History

What a family jewel this barn is. It has stood on this spot more years then we actually know. My grandmother was raised on this farm and my great uncle still lives here. This barn was used as a milking parlor, had stalls for horses and was used to house sheep. Over the years it has been added on too, gotten a new roof and new doors, but it has always been used. To this day, it has purpose and it will continue to live on and form new history for more generations.

30 Days of Photos – Day 16 Memories

Sometimes you just need to stop and photograph the things that make you happy. The things that bring back the memories.

Day 16 – Memories

I drive by here almost every day. The place has not chanced much in the past 20 years but I know that someday it will. Someday the barn that I played in as a little girl and have fond memories of will be gone. The grain bins that I helped clean out with somewhat fond memories may still be here, but there could be more added to the mix. This is the barn where my first cow had her calf. It is where the milk cow would come each morning and night to be milked. It is the place where we grind feed and stack hay in the loft. It’s the memories that bring this picture to life. For not every picture speaks to everyone, but not everyone has the memories that go with the picture.
