First week of August was a good week. Our dahlias are blooming nicely. They are such a wonderful flower to photograph. I planted some mixed flower seeds and they are coming nicely also. Anything is game around my house. We have a raccoon with no tail (has been named Stubby) visiting the paddock across the road where Tansy lives during the day. He discovered the tub where her water is. Sometimes there is water left in. I’m not sure if the fox approves or not. We saw the doe and her fawn, which is really growing, one morning. A new saddle was tried out on Jazz. We both decided it looked good on her. If you have read C.S.Lewis books you will recognize Aslan. He was built in memory of a brave little boy that passed away. I found some creative art work on a wall in a small town. Sometimes the small towns have some very creative art work. Yesterday I went to a rodeo. Had a wonderful day. Visited with friends. Shot some great photos. The Western Images page will have new content and I have lots to do. Hope you enjoy this week’s contribution. The Flowers page had some new additions.
This week marks the half way point of July. Summer is going by really fast. Most days the weather doesn’t realize it’s summer. Nights and mornings are pretty cool. The Boy and I went on a rode trip and broadened our horizons and add new content. Found some more wall murals in a small town. These are pretty old but I think they are still wonderful. My assistant the trail camera took some wonderful shots of three whitetail does. I’ve included quite a few of them as there are so beautiful. Such big eyes. The first rodeo since Convid9 appeared happened this weekend. I went and photographed some of the slack Saturday AM. It was a night rodeo so that makes it a no go for me. I’ve included a few from the day. Nice horses. Good riders. Hope you enjoy this weeks collection.
This week The Boy and I were out and about. We both like road trips. We saw two large wall murals. One was called “Market Day”, the other “Dinner in the field”. My peony bush has decided it is time to bloom. It is about a month later than plants in the city. I spent some time with one blossom in Studio 13 using different backgrounds. I have a favorite wonder if you will? No barn would be complete without a barn cat and we have Barn Kitty, the tabby. She decided to come out and see what I was up to. We visited a man who I will call the Gopher Whistler. He does his whistle and gophers come from all over for the bread he feeds them. For him they are very tame. The are cute but can cause a lot of damage. Here are shots from our week, again, a bit of everything. Hope to see you next week.
