I had an appointment with our chiropractor Nancy Burns this afternoon, and I couldn’t get soft landscapes out of my mind. I stopped a half dozen times on the way back home. Day three of our window, peaceable days quieter, sweet.
I won’t stop taking photos, but I work a little less daily. Hopefully, Thursday and Friday will be down to pictures and some good wishes. This is our time of Gratitude and Peacefulness.
The Leica can take wonderfully soft pictures, and I’m experimenting with using them to capture the feeling of landscapes, something I haven’t used my Leica 2 for. So I did a Ride-A-Bout.
Tonight, we’re eating in, as we will be for the rest of the week.
Tonight, Shrimp and Saag sauce, with rice. I’ve been tasked with putting together our Thanksgiving dinner – lobster tail, fish cakes,Farro grain, squash and crispy kale. Maria’s in charge of dessert if she wants one. We’ve got some neat wine also.
It was warmer than yesterday today; we let the barn cats out of the basement; they wanted to come back in tonight.
I think Flo and Minnie are done with being cold; they love their heated cat house in the basement. Maria, the farm mom, argued for keeping them outside, she said it was good for them, but I argued from the vantage point of the older person; they want to be warm. Flo and Minnie don’t do much but sleep anymore; they might as well be warm.
Ultimately, she agreed.
I love the sunlight in the woods behind the farm at dusk. I usually miss the light by a few minutes, but I caught it today.
I love to photograph this old Red Barn; I expect it will be knocked down any day. I decided to try it in infrared mode; the barn’s character stands out.
Our small village has a neat downtown, if I could call it that. This is Main Street, the heart of the town. You can see the Victorian impact on the town in these buildings.
I like the softness and feel of the Leica 2 landscapes. I’ve been photographing the yellow barns for some time now, but I’m learning a lot from these new landscapes. I took the yellow barn into Lightroom (the family barn at the top) to get the soft and soothing feeling of these photos.
A whole new avenue for me to explore as I move from flower photos to Autumn and, soon, to Winter.
