Kitty, Say Cheese for the Camera

We all know technology has become a part of our daily lives, yet it is still fascinating to see the mixing of the old and the new. Take these pictures of my two grandchildren, James, the oldest, climbing off his four wheeler to take pictures of the youngest, Chase, with his tablet. They clearly show how the young of today have made computers a part of their daily lives. Yet, they also show that some things in life never change; that little boys still love playing in barns and still love kittens.

Battle-Scarred Tomcat

This is Orange, our tomcat. He has been in fresh battles recently as evidenced by his ragged nose.

Black Snake

I wanted to take pictures of the blackberry vines while they were in bloom. I was happily snapping away when I head a funny noise beside me. I looked around and there was a blacksnake. Bow, our cow dog, and the snake were only feet away from each other doing a face-off. I got some pictures before Bow and I eased away.

Snake Tree

It is warm, sunny and beautiful today in Kentucky; the kind of day that makes a person want to go outside and take pictures. We have a huge, old walnut tree behind our house, and I discovered that from a certain angle one of the branches looks like a snake.

I took lots of pictures from different angles and this is the one my daughter likes the best, so this is the one I'm posting.

Old Rock Building

This old rock building is on our property and who knows how long ago it was built. We can't decide how to fix it or even if it can be fixed, but we don't have the heart to take it down either. I think it add charm to the place and the cats, squirrels, and wood bees really love it.  I like how the evening light caught the corner of the building of the building, throwing the rest into shadow.
