Can you believe today is the last day of March? Time really flies! Soon it will be summer and before you know it, it’s December 31st and we’re counting down to our 2013 New Year celebratory “Happy New Year”! I know I am jumping ahead much too far and much too fast, but think about it….
This photo was taken Friday morning while I was on my way to work. Originally, it was a blue bird that caught my eye. Unfortunately, I was unable to photograph it before it flew away. Next time I will be prepared. As for these two little ones; they decided to hang out for bit just long enough for to take their photo.
I decided to take a stroll through the city of Newark this afternoon. By “stroll” I really mean a sightseeing drive. It was a beautiful day with a bit of a cool breeze. I found this great abandoned building that was once was a varnishing company. I love the architectural design of the building. The factory was built in the 1800s and was owned by Franklin Murphy. I am not trained in architectural design but I thought the design was very aesthetically pleasing to the eye and had great lines and detail work. It simply begged to be photographed. So, I had to oblige. Continue reading →
I decided to take a quick ride over to where I discovered the cows this past weekend. I wanted to see if they had any friends grazing along with them. They were all there (even the one that moooned me) but no barnyard friends tagged along. So I kept driving further down the road where I found this farm. There was a stable on the land but there weren’t any horses anywhere. I was a bit bummed because do love horses. They are such elegant and graceful creatures. Maybe on another occasion I’ll have an opportunity to photograph a few horses.
Something about this building reminds me of Europe even though I have never been. I was drawn to its texture and style. I hope that you enjoy it as well. I think a wide-angle lens would have made this more appealing. What are your thoughts? Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to hear from you.
Today was just one of those Sundays that I didn’t want to really venture out; but I had to. I couldn’t bear the fact that all I had to photograph was the abandoned train and the blooming trees. I think we have all seen enough of the train; at least for now anyway. I also didn’t want to start a sneeze fest either!
I decided to stay local today. I was on the way home from the market when I decided to take a shortcut to avoid the construction, traffic and the upcoming traffic light. Some lights are just too long and today was not the day I felt like I should wait. I made a turn down what I thought was the shortcut to another road which would also take me home. Consequently, the road was blocked and detour signs were everywhere. Okay. I decided, instead of turning around, I would follow the brightly colored detour signs. Now, we are cooking with gas!
It’s been 17 minutes. I should have been home by now. Maybe this wasn’t a shortcut after all. To my surprise, I discovered something I have not seen for some time now….
COWS… I SAW COWS!!
I was filled so much excitement, you would have thought I had never seen cows before. Well, truth be told; I have. I was on a fairly busy road, due to the detour, but I managed to get a few photographs of the cows. At some point, a few of them began to mosey on over to have their 15 minutes of fame… and that’s when I was…
