Easy Going Autumn Days

Autumn is definitely one of my favourite times of year.  With a little extra time on my hands this past week, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying getting out and photographing for the fun of it. There is a magnificent old horse barn I’ve driven past and have always thought how I’d love to take some photographs. This week, I made a point of going there specifically to take photos of that magnificent old barn.

I walked in and took all kinds of photographs of it, from different angles, including close ups and some that included it within the landscape. I’ll likely go through the series and include a few more here in my photo journal in the near future.

This weekend has been so enjoyable so far. Yesterday was a sunny autumn day ablaze with fall colours, my dear husband treated us to a trip to the city for a great dinner, and I’ve been methodically working away at some long overdue household chores. It’s amazing how certain chores, such as ironing, seem much less like work when there is time to do them — besides there was some excellent, intelligent radio to listen to on CBC. With the wind, it’s also been two great days for drying clothes on the clothesline.

I hope you’ve been enjoying your autumn weekend. What has been the best moment of the weekend for you?

Taking my little son to his first music lesson of the season and seeing him light up at it. 🙂

What a fine, old barn to have for a photo shoot. I’ll look forward to more images of this barn. I’m already wondering why the one door on the front is much longer than the opening.

What a fantastic old barn. We have very few large barns in Arkansas. There is one very near to this style not far from here, but it’s going down fast. I like the painted quality of your image.

I love this barn…

This old barn is magnificent as is your photo. No wonder you couldn’t resist it.

I love the simplicity here. And the aloneness I feel when I look at it. Sometimes it is good to be really alone. I wouldn’t mind going to this barn and hanging out like I used to on our dairy. Miss that.

Best moment of the weekend has been my shoots with close family and friends. At least I can do that for them.
