Well, not literally, I mostly ride bareback. But that’s beside the point. I’m back in the blogging saddle for awhile. I can’t believe it’s been over a month since I was posting semi-regularly!
With one and a half hay fields left to finish, I should be posting pretty regularly until it’s time to go out and actually pick up all the bales and put them in the barn. With this triple-digit heat wave passing through for the next few days, it’s certainly good hay drying weather, but not so good for us humans! It’s stay in the shade all day and then come out at night like the deer and work.
Bull Thistle, Cirsium Vulgare
boys, or what you consider toys challange this week was really fun to shoot. Some very interesting stuff…
My vast Breyer model horse collection. I have over fifty, including the dogs, two cows, a cat, and chickens and rabbits. Now that I don’t play with much anymore, they sit on top of my dressers.
Affirmed, winner of the 1978 Triple Crown. The tenth, and so far the last horse to do so.
Hidalgo from the 2004 movie Hidalgo. Beautiful chestnut paint.
Holstein milk cow. I also have a Hereford bull.
My new baby, a Takamine EG530SC acoustic guitar as payment for my work over the summer hauling hay, weeding, and whatever odd jobs.
I’m putting these next two pictures on in behalf of Dad since he doesn’t have a blog, though he has to “share” some of his toys with me. =) The emblem on our 1948 KB-6 flatbed hay truck. I love this truck.
The 1/2 scale 12 pound Napoleon cannon. It makes some serious thunder!
And finally, can’t forget about the camera that makes posting pictures on mine and Mom’s blog possible…
A new idea from Ed for those of us who are looking for another challenge to shoot. It’s a great idea, Ed! I’m looking forward to seeing what everybody as posted pictures of.
Dewy Green Arrow peas.
This guy looks like he’s had a rough time – I wonder how much the tear in his wing would affect his flight? I didn’t even notice the bumble bee on the other flower until I was cropping the picture!
This is straight out of the camera, despite the enhanced look…actually, all of them are SOOC. I love the color on this one.
