Friday- Around Town's Shoot Out!








As you can see, I did the wrong assignment Friday, for the Friday Shoot Out. I felt badly because this week's assignment was relaxation not funny signs. I woke up early this morning to fulfill my responsibility. I find morning to be relaxing and I find the country and outdoors to be relaxing as well. I was fortunate to find both components coming together here. What first caught my attention was the one barn window lit with sunshine. Then I noticed the scene around the barn and came up with a relaxing series of pictures. For the Friday Group..I'm sorry I'm a day late..but a week early with my sign!

Love the photos. The light rocks on the first two photos. Isn't it great when the light corporates?

Oh, I love the light "on" in the barn window! Memories of long ago from the tyre swing! Relaxing? Yes!

Another gorgeous series! Beautiful, early morning light, deep, rich colors, and a terrific subject all add up to a winner! I certainly can't choose a favorite, but in my opinion, the tire swing image best represents "relaxation." Wonderful job!

Beautiful images. I find the nature and any idyllic landscape and images in the country side relaxing. My dream would be to live in the country side, away from the bustle of metropolis, that is so crazy and stressed at all times and is missing out on the beauty in life...

Thank you so much for stopping by my place, I appreciate your visit.;))

the lighting and color are lovely.
my fav is the first with the light in the window.

Sandy said...

Absolutely stunning!! Pictures like that need to be framed and on display.

Ha, you can join Bagman in that peanut gallery now! I love photos of old barns, homes, and anything of this sort, and do find that drive through our country side relaxing, since I was a girl...My father used to say "We will buy that for you and your future husband when you get married", and I would get upset, but now...I would love to own one, lol!

Like the sign too!
