My rusty/rustic themed week sort of fizzed out due to a hectic work week. So I think I’ll pick up from where I left off and then can hopefully catch up everyone else’s posts I’ve missed. The horse in the background was a nice bit of happenstance. The subject of interest was this nest of twisted vines on an area of a pasture fence that had went through several mends over time. It wasn’t until I hit my DOF preview button that I noticed the horse had walked into the frame. He was gone in the next 10 seconds.
Sadly, I think we just broke a record for the shortest spring ever. The temps were in the 90s this weekend. The kids stayed in their swim suits most of the weekend—kiddie pools, bubbles, sprinklers, popsicles, water guns, sunburns, bug bites—the full summer gamut. While fun and the heat is still tolerable, it’s just too soon. I’ve actually been stock piling “spring” photographs to do a run on the blog. It seems now it will be an “ode to spring.”
