I promised Karen that I would post some of my unusual shots that I took with full sunlight on Friday, but first, here is our sunrise from yesterday, taken looking out over our lake. You can't see the lake but you can see the lake effect fog.
On Friday afternoon, I got bored with what I should have been doing, so I took my camera outside, even though it was hot, and the sun was blazing. It was a challenge to get some good photographs. See what you think.
A praying manits and his shadow.
A lady bug on the siding. She was partially shaded by the crab apple tree.
Cosmos and October sky.
Soybean field with foxtail in foreground.
I took severl pictures of our grain bins, because we had just gotten them painted last Saturday. This on is my favorite, with the focus on the single stem in the foreground and the field and bins out of focus.
I had never taken pictures of this shed before because it is so ugly, but Friday I decided that that was the best reason to take a picture of it. It is the only original building left on the farm that was here when we bought it in '72.
Peeling paint, anyone? This is really impressive when you blow it up.
This is one of the more interesting shots I took. I was looking up the side of the shed.
This is one of my favorites. I like the contrast of the white paint with the dark door knob and the rust running down. When you blow it up, you can see all the peeling paint. This is a door that was somewhere here on the farm when we bought it. I think it was somewhere in the house, which is 100 years old this year. The knob is original, too.
I took a few more, but it's time to fix lunch.
