Finally back to blogging!





Summer is a crazy time around here. I have a camera card full of images to share, but just a few at a time for now...as I have much to do now that summer is almost over and deadlines are looming.

I returned from a wonderful family vacation...you will notice a ton of old faded rusty parts. My card was filled to the brim and most where close ups of items with great patina. Most people I am sure were wondering what on earth is that girl taking pictures of? I was up close and personal with rust. If you are reading this...you probably understand.

There were many local towns with lots of rusty old equipment and memorabilia from years ago. Sad actually how things have changed in some of our farming communities in Eastern Washington. I love apple orchards! Not sure if it is the color or symmetry I am drawn to, but I would love an orchard. Then I could be a really farm girl. I'll have to share my chicken pictures another time for my little chicks are almost full grown now. Just like my girls...all too fast.



Here is one of the old town museums...actual buildings that exist in a practical ghost town.

Cool photos! Wow, if only those old buildings could talk - they must have some interesting stories to tell. Looking forward to hanging out with you at A&S in a few months!

I like the photos too. Rust is so interesting to me. And the buildings are so small and oddly shaped.

Ah rusty things! Time's color, that is what I call it. Lovely old doors, perilously hanging from rusty hinges, old nails and bits and pieces of who knows what they were a part of, now almost buried in the ground. When the rain falls and you find yourself in front of a rain covered rusted piece, can you really avoid to think "diamonds and rust"?

I am glad you had a good time, I am looking forward to see you comes October. Hope we get a chance to visit.
