Some new barn photos were taken last weekend while we were out and about, navigating the new snow. Yes, we got stuck once -- out in the middle of a drifted cornfield -- but thanks to a large corn scoop and my hubby's (sometimes) strong back, we made it out safely.
I'm never worried when I'm with him. He always finds a way.
Although I'm generally not one to talk about the distant past, I have been reflecting recently on my photography and how it has changed over the past year.
Let's take a peek at 2012 on our homestead:
January 2012: seems I was in a Polaroid mood:
February arrived and I was in total texture love (these days, not so much:)
March came in like a lamb and found me down by the pond:
April Showers did not arrive. Actually, 2012 was a drought year and we waited until December to get any measurable precipitation. I began April 2012 with a retro-looking photo of the clothesline:
May Day! May Day! Shall I ever decide what my photography style will be?
June was a quiet month, with simple images from around the homestead:
By July, the boat was ready and I was reminded that getting out of the house
was not such a bad thing after all:
In August, a naked lady came to visit. Isn't she lovely?
On September 1, 2012, I jumped into the abstract:
By October 2012, Shane was back home after working in Vermillion, SD for over a year. We also started our new trapping supply business and things became rather hectic.
Fortunately, I still found time to roam our country roads:
November came and went -- still no rain or snow. Things were getting desperate in the precip department, yet nature continued to be there for me when I needed inspiration:
Life was a blur after Thanksgiving.
No Christmas shopping sprees or elaborate decorations for us -- simple, quiet, slow -- and thankfully, we received our first real snowfall in almost a year. The best gift we could have asked for:
