Leaves Of Winter

Can you tell that life has slowed down for me a bit as Cerwin has spent much of the past few weeks hunting.

My pictures involve sunsets, birds, and weather. ūüôā

DSC_2539Since I began putting Bible verses and thoughts on photos, I have been looking for new ideas.

I took these pictures on November 15.

DSC_2547I remember last year – when taking a photography class – hearing the instructor say that he had a friend who stopped taking pictures because he ran out of things to photograph.

I am not there yet!

The Barn Entrance

These pictures didn’t quite fit into the baby shower pictures, but this is what we saw at the entrance to the barn – which is on the property of an excavating business.

DSC_6837Cerwin thought it looked like something that was pulled by horses and used in a stone quarry.

DSC_6828Does anyone know what it is?

We don’t know, and would really like to know how it was used.

DSC_6835Cerwin’s cousin Resie said (on Facebook) it is a stone crusher.

DSC_6830This is the entrance arch to the barn. However, I took this picture when we were leaving.

We have been here several times, but always at night so didn’t notice¬†these things before.

Photography Workshop

Wednesday, October 23

DSC_8763Coe Camera Рwhere I purchased my camera Рcalled me a few weeks ago, saying that they were having a workshop on my camera (Nikon D7000) and asked if I was interested.

I was –¬†and invited our daughter Deb (light sweater) to go along, because she has the same camera.

DSC_8765The event was held at The Press Room restaurant in downtown Lancaster, and was so worth the cost of $20.00 per person.

DSC_8768We were given many good hints and taught some great techniques which were easy to follow because of his well-done PowerPoint presentation.

DSC_8783The instructor was quite knowledgeable and professional.

DSC_8770There were probably between 40 and 50 people, and some asked very hi-tech questions, making us think they were professional photographers.

DSC_8776He taught some things that were way beyond anything I needed to know, but it was interesting to understand more about my camera.

DSC_8785The cost of the evening included heavy hors d’oeuvres¬†and drink. “Heavy” meant there was plenty of food – cheese, crackers, fruit, and pizza.

DSC_8797My water and coke.
