art room clothespins

I have visited the art classroom of my friend, Lynne, twice recently & it wasn't until the second visit that I finally noticed her use of clothespins to hang small posters from her blinds. But there was so much other interesting stuff to look at it was easy to overlook. More on the other stuff later.

the loafing shed

My sister-in-law, Jean, shared some photos she took at the farm last year. To get these photos I had to resort to taking her camera card home with me & downloading the photos. The camera card should be back in her camera by now; hopefully in time for her to take photos of her impending new grandson! Anyway, these photos were taken while my brothers, Jim & Ted, helped dismantle the loafing shed on the west side of the barn. Years of weather & wind had made the shed unsafe & there were no longer any cows around to loaf in the shed so down it came. Ted's son, David, helped. My oldest brothers, Don & Roy, showed up too. And Nancy & Dad. I'm sorry I missed all the fun (and the photo op). But glad to share some great photos Jean took . . .

My favorite photo (above).

Back row: Nancy, Gene, Ted & Jim
Front row: Don, Bill & Roy

And of course, there has to be a bit of target practice after the work is done. Thanks for the photos, Jean!

things I love

So one of my readers (thank you, Becky) suggested I photograph things/people I love. I'm combining two things I love into one object: pencils & color. I touched on them briefly in Photo 4 and went back to this idea today. I don't spend time coloring with these pencils, but they turned out to be an interesting prop for some photos. My favorites tomorrow . . .

Just as in class, these photos are straight out of the camera.
