autumn photo walk


I enjoyed my "just me" photo walk last week,
so much so, 
I'm going to try to make it a regular thing.
Convincing myself to get up at sunrise,
when I could be in my comfy oh so cozy bed...
Haha... we'll see.
The only time I have is either before daddy goes to work,
or when he gets home.
Because, Lord knows, 3 year old Jax
does NOT want to wait for mama to snap a billion pictures. 
Hopefully my love for photography will win.
(At least once a week!)

Walking down our country road,
 just before the sun rose.





I have a thing for old red barns.
Especially old red barns surrounded by lovely autumn!



I'm kinda loving this in B&W!



Walking back up towards home,
good morning sunshine in autumn!

I'm here blog-hopping
because of B&W,
but I love each and every one of these photos.
I live in the rural midwest and
you have captured what autumn is like for me.

I love old red barns too! I bought a book of pictures a few years ago.. just red barns, I wanted to frame them, but since then I decided to take my own pics of barns and frame them.. wish I lived where you lived! its nearly impossible to find a red barn anywhere in this state!
Your pictures are amazing, love that tree shot. spooky, creepy cool and yet.. beautiful!
