sunday in the country


a visit to my parents home today was
filled with beautiful images of fall in the country


golden rays of sunshine and a gentle
breeze put the finishing touch on
my dad's work wear


i never miss a chance to photograph a few shadows


a walk in the field accompanied by the
sound of the wind rustling the corn stalks


tall sentinels soak up the
afternoon sun



more filtered sunlight and shadows


the rock my dad had moved to his front
yard; a brick mason by trade,
he personally added the family name



the home my parents built 50+ years ago.
they say you can never go home but it
feels like i do every time.
home sweet home


feast for our eyes today will be a
thanksgiving feast for birds
come november

beautiful pictures. I love the laundry line. nothing like warm flannel in the fresh air.

The pictures of the corn field make me feel as though I was there walking along with you. I could almost hear the rustling too.

And I love that you took a picture of clothes on the clothesline. Clotheslines are one of my favorite things.

Lovely photographs, Julie. I especially love the cornfield one - all that gold! Thanks for sharing your colorful fall leaves. I do miss that!
