Sunday Stills – the letter B

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on May 9, 2010 by TheEggGatherer

Today’s Sunday Stills challenge is the letter B.  Some of mine are from my archives but I did have one new from our trip to Lexington, KY, yesterday. 

We found this momma and baby burro while on a drive a couple weeks ago.  I wanted to put them in the truck and take them home with me.

As you know from my older posts, I love old barns and old houses.  They need someone to love them – that’s me.  This is an old barn that is near us.  There’s a house across the road from it that needs as much love as it does.

Bricks, I know this could be under any number of different headings, but I loved this photo of the window and chimneys on the back side of the Henry Clay estate, Ashland, in Lexington, Kentucky.  Neat place, must go back when we have more time.  I’ll post more photos of some of the gardens later.

Last but not least is my Marine bear.  He is a reminder of all the men and women that serve around the world.  Semper Fi!To check out more Sunday Stills go to:  http://sundaystills.wordpress.com

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL YOU GREAT MOMS!

Sunday Stills – Potluck

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2010 by TheEggGatherer

Time for Sunday Stills – Potluck.  After many, many hours of trying to get my photos loaded, my wireless keyboard working and everything else out-of-the-way, I present to you my “potluck” of photos.

This is the barn at the Nixon farm where I lived for a few years when I was a kid.  Before we lived there, my Grandparents worked the farm.  Eveything is in shambles now, but the memories are still there.  The house is inhabited by raccoons and who knows what else.  I remember sitting on the well top and waiting each day for the milk man to come and makes his pick-up.  His son started coming with him and I thought he was the most handsome fellow that I’d ever seen – besides my Dad. 

 This is the end of the barn and just thought this was a very different angle.  There was a resident buzzard perched on top watching our every move.Buzzard feathers and cow patties – you had to watch your step.This is the shelter house at Fort Hill.  We’ve had many family reunions here over the years.  It’s just a neat old stone and wood structure.The dogwood and redbuds are blooming right now and stand out against the new green just beginning to appear everywhere.This is the spring where my Grandparents got their drinking water for many years.  It’s been updated since then with new concrete  sides.As we headed home for some supper, we found this little guy getting his supper, too.

Sunday Stills – Best of ’09

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on January 10, 2010 by TheEggGatherer

Here are my favorites from the 2009 challenges.  My first is of my Grandpa Brown’s tobacco barn.  It may not be the best of composition but it brings back a lot of memories to me and the fact that it is not longer standing – they tore it down shortly after the pictures were taken.

 My second choice is a macro shot of one of my favorite day lilies – Agnes Schumate.

Hope you enjoy these and please checkout all the favorites of 2009 at:  http://sundaystills.wordpress.com
