I know that no new photo challenge has been posted yet this week, and I’m aware that Thanksgiving is pretty well back in our review mirrors. Still, I want to share some shots I took at Thanksgiving while my family was in Pennsylvania. I mean, why wait for WordPress to give me the perfect opportunity to post them?
These pictures were taken in front of my grandmother’s old house – which my sister and brother-in-law now own. The house is on a rural street off a rural highway, and it amazes me how the place has changed and remained the same since my sister and I were kids, visiting our grandparents there.
This is the view across the street from the house:
The barn roof used to be red, and there used to be cows instead of horses grazing in the field, but it is still not too shabby, picturesque-wise.
Here’s the view as I turn and look up the street:
And here’s a shot I took while literally lying in the middle of the road, with my parents behind me admonishing my kids NEVER TO DO THIS.
I don’t like the way it turned out anyway….
Meanwhile, on the lawn behind me, this is what was taking place while I tried to get all arty with the landscape and my lens:
Yes, a good ol’ leaf pile jump-a-thon on a perfect fall afternoon. That’s pure family fun you’re witnessing there, folks.
Thanks for letting me get all Norman-Rockwell on you for a few moments… Now, we return to our regularly scheduled program of daily activities.
