Mom and Me

Christmas Day!

My friend , and favorite singer John M Schmid, bringing joy and hope during this season. The setting was at the “Legends of Music Barn,” near Millersburg, Ohio, my home town!

Thanks, Rusty Baker, Artist, who graciously hosted this event! He has also painted murals in at least 200 cities and towns, worldwide!!

Snow Arrives

Countryside

Winds 24 mph, gusting to 46 mph! Of course you can’t tell from this photo that it is windy! It did eventually bring some rain.

My attempt at taking a photo of this Amish farmer in the field with his team of horses, fertilizing with cow manure. I thought it would be a nice addition to the corn stalk shocks! It is unique, though you might need a magnifying glass to see the farmer. It doesn’t help that there was a post between the horses and me! I am still pondering whether to get a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000.

It's December!

In fact this the second day of December, 201″Pebbles” product ornaments. My son imports these from Bangladesh for his company, Kahiniwalla. They are “cute as a button.”

I decided to travel this road, since I was picking up my my father’s 3rd cousin, who had been taking of her mother, and needed a ride home. Her mother and I both live just off of this route.

Autumn on the Farm

Cow checking me out!

Idyllic Farm Scene

I was on a taxi run in Southeast Ohio, and returning home, as I came around a bend in the road, I was pleasantly surprised to see this covered bridge (one of many in Ohio). Note the difference the lighting makes on the enhancement of the top photo.

Ohio Shed Decor

I loved this decor on the wall. A creative way of using old tires, etc. I couldn’t resist turning around and passing by the shed again, to get a photo.

Amish Barn-Raising

They didn’t want people getting up close during this barn-raising, and since I don’t have a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000, this is the shot I got this morning. this event might only happen in this community, once in three years. Two weeks and one day ago, the original barn was on fire. This is how it looked at 9 am this morning. I suspect it was finished by the day’s end. The Amish church community got together, and by today the farmer had another barn! For years this was done without the help of the machinery, to lift the rafters etc.
