A trip to Indiana just wouldn’t be complete without a afternoon out photographing old, abandoned barns. This one really caught my eye because it was sitting in a field of wild mustard.
I had to walk a little bit into a plowed up corn field (after asking permission from the farm owner, of course) to get close enough to this vine-covered corn crib.
Last week I checked out the Kanapaha Botanical Garden in Gainesville. The place has lots of different flowers, a large herb garden and the state’s largest display of bamboo. We’re talking tall, tall, massive growths of bamboo! This photo, to which I added a painterly look, doesn’t really emphasize how tall the bamboo plant in the background is. (I needed a human to stand beneath it) but envision a person walking beneath the trellis on the right to get an idea.
Walking through the bamboo groves was sort of eerie, especially with the wind creating a soft rattling sound overhead.
Sure is fun to take my photos and turn them into paintings. This is at Lake Sumtner Landing in The Villages.
