Turkey Family

While getting ready for work this morning, we noticed this family of turkeys cruising through the yard.  I grabbed the Nikon and quietly slipped out the back door, and captured these beautiful birds.  What a wonderful start to the day! #photoaday

Wagon Wheel

There is a place in Frankenmuth, just South of town, called The Dead Creek Saloon, that serves great burgers. This old wagon sits outside. It has seen better days, but I really like the rustic look and I love the wagon wheels.  #photoaday

This grapevine angel hangs on the outside wall of our chicken coop. No chickens in the coop yet. I need to build the fences in run and then we should be ready for chickens.

Chains

I rented a Bobcat skid steer today to do some heavy work. The Bobcat was secured to the trailer with these heavy duty chains. They are solid and heavy, reminds of Jacob Marley (was that his name), when he visited Scrooge, dragging those chains. #photoaday

Texture

The corn crib is the subject once again. The emphasis here is on the texture of the wood and the rusty nails.  Years of exposure to the elements have produced this rugged texture.

The more texture the more experience and wisdom.  Here’s to texture.
