I Spy - Family Event

Photobucket



I hope you all are finding some great shots for the categories we have for you. I know I've been having to think about them a little harder. Oh well, I know you all will do better than me this week. My brain just isn't on photos this week. Why? I don't know. It's just one of those weeks. In the meantime, I think you should join Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams and me for some blogging fun.

Next week's categories are "Ridiculous" and "Your Choice". You know you want to join. Don't shy away. Just follow your heart. Here are my interpretations this week.


Family Event

I had a hard time figuring this one out. Did I want to use archived photos or did I want to share the last family get together with those I hadn't seen for a while. I chose to show my brothers, mom, sister, and nieces.

November-2012-009Your Choice

I went for a drive last Saturday and found a park I didn't know about. What I found rather amusing was that all these cabins were ready for a flood.

The Trains Are Boarding!


Photobucket



I have been having a few issues getting out and taking photos because of weather or other events getting in the way. With Thanksgiving this last week, I ran out of time to do much of it. When I went out on Saturday, the sun was giving off some weird aura and nothing really came out right. Then the clouds came out and everything was gray. I guess it's a good thing I like black and white photography isn't it? Maybe next weekend I can get some better photos. Wish me luck on that.

What are you all going to do this week? I'm going to try to keep up with the little photo hop that Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams host every week.  Grab the button below, make a post and link up with us. You really should. This week's categories are "Family Event" and "Your Choice". Just give it a shot. Okay?

I Spy - Music

Photobucket



Is everyone ready for this week's I Spy? I know I am. This week has been a bit crazy. The boys at work have been acting very weird and goofy. Trust me it's fun, and some days are just more crazy than others. In the meantime, I think you should join Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams and me for some blogging fun.

Next week's categories are "Family Event" and "Your Choice". You know you want to join. Don't shy away. Just follow your heart. Here are my interpretations this week.


This poor mp3 player has seen its better days. As you can tell it is used a lot.

November-2012-006

When my dad was a minister at this old country church, someone would ring the bell at 9am every Sunday morning. Since we lived right across the road, I made sure I was over there so I could pull the rope. Yes, it is still hanging inside the church and it still rings. It was music to my ears as a child.

Your Choice
Tuesday morning the fog was like pea soup. Not only was it that way in the morning, it stayed all day and into that night. It was crazy. But it did give me some amazing shots in the cemetery.

Time For Another Round of Train Rides


Photobucket



This week was fun for me because I went to a wedding on Saturday. I haven't been to one for many years and one of the guys I work with got married that day. I had a blast. I don't get too girly very often so it was a treat. The closer the day got, the more excited I got. So I did the whole thing. Face paint, dress, and high heels. Yeah, I know. You're thinking that I'm a tom girl not a prissy one. Well you're right. But once in a while, I get an urge to be girly.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday





Yes it's that time again! Link up with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos to join the hunt!


Vision

This is a vision to me.

October-2012-023

Strong

The old walls of the house are still strong. Can't say the same thing about the floors and roof.

November-2012-059

Buttons

The buttons on my favorite coat.

001

Map

Can anyone figure out where I would like to go? And, yes, I still use atlases with real maps.

007

Favorite Fruit

Okay so this is an archived one. But I do love apples!

I Spy - Wish



Photobucket



With Christmas not too far away, there are many things I'm sure we all wish for. I know what I want. Do you know what you want? I think you should join Dazee at Crazy Daze and Night Dreams and me for some wishing fun.

Next week's categories are "Music" and "Your Choice". You know you want to join. Don't shy away. Just follow your heart. Here are my interpretations this week.

"Wish"

This piano is the first piano I ever played. I wish I could bring it home. I was told I could, but alas, I have no way to get it here.

November-2012-064

I have played these keys a million times. And it sounds as good as it did 44 years ago.

November-2012-065

"Your Choice"

This is what I call a "hillbilly no trespassing sign".

The Trains Are on Track!!!

Photobucket






Hope everyone is doing well this week. I'm still trying to recover from the vacation and the first week back at work. The fact is that the older I get, the worse that is. I'm just glad I still feel like doing anything. You know how your brain thinks you're still 20 but you're body is most definitely more like 50? That's me! But oh well!

Another Hunt is Upon Us








Another hunt is on! I can't believe it. But I actually have some photos to share. I know you're shocked but never fear, the world will not come to an end. So jump in on the hunt with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos for the real fun with photos.



Nature

The old tree has adapted to laying on the ground. Nature at it's best.

November-2012-097

Vintage or Retro

While traipsing around the countryside I found an old shed that had these vintage horse trophies exposed to the elements through the wall of the shed.

November-2012-033

Whimsical

This is rather whimsical to me anyway. The light shining through the trees was kind of cool.

October-2012-061

Cooking

When I see houses like this, I think about all the cooking that was done in the kitchen. That's where all the family gathered and life was lived.

November-2012-041

Week's Best

They just lined up for the shot. Who could ask for more?

Old School

One of the things I love to do is photograph old buildings. The architecture is always interesting to me. Even when you know they just had to be "like the other guy". Last week I had the opportunity to do some sightseeing around the area I grew up in. It was a great couple of days.

This was one of the finds. It is an old school. I'm talking before any electricity or indoor plumbing. No furnace or phone. Here are some photos to share.

This is what the school looks like from the road. I was so happy I was able to get to it.

November-2012-040

What struck me was how the term one-room school really did fit.

November-2012-023

You can even see where the blackboard was.

November-2012-030

The damage that has been done is just wrong to me but it gives the feeling there was real life in there.

November-2012-026

One of the most fascinating parts of the building was the fact that the tin ceiling was almost completely intact. That was amazing!

November-2012-027

I can just picture all the children who passed through that entry.

I Spy - Pole(s)

It's I Spy time again. Last week I had the opportunity to shoot many different things since I was visiting family. It was a blast. I got to chase teenagers through the woods the first night I was there. Yes, it was a Halloween party for them. Trying to scare them was fun. Sorry, no photos because it was too dark and I was moving too much.

You know I expect all my followers to join the I Spy photo hop with me and my best bud, Dazee at Crazy Daze and Nite Dreams. to show up what you found for this week. If you don't, you are so in trouble. I know, I'd have to find you first. Oh well, it sounds worse than it is. 

Next week's categories are Wish and Your Choice. You know you want to.


Pole(s)

Now you know I have to be a little different with my interpretations as much as I can. So mine have to do with what is ON the poles as opposed to the poles themselves.

The first one is a giant root beer on a pole. It's the sign from the original Frostop that's been there for many, many years.

October-2012-035

This one is even older. Paris Gas hasn't been in business for longer than the Frostop has. But you know me. I love taking photos of old and rusty things.

October-2012-032


Your Choice

Now this one is typical of me. I was visiting my brother's last week and found this friendly guy in the bathroom sink. I just had to start snapping.

October-2012-010

Be sure to link up. We want to see what you have for us this week.
