YOU CAPTURE - WEEK 8

One would think that seeing as I pretty much live in the redneck capital of North America, that this week's theme would be cinch. Mmm hmm .... every where I went throughout the week I was "seeing" opportunities, wishing that I had batteries for my camera. When crunch time came around (ahem .... yesterday afternoon), all of those opportunities were no longer there: the rusted old wagon in the neighbor's yard up the block: gone. Heading out to Fort Steele, a heritage town: too late. That really old fence post with a wagon wheel leaning against it: burnt down.

Upon my sister's suggestion, I was going to take photos of my house only realizing that I will save that for a retro theme or something that Beth may come up with. Because believe you me folks, my house will spank any other house out there in the retro category.

It was my son's suggestion that we go to the forest park just up the road. And it was also his suggestion to take photos of the "really" old bird house and fence with pine cones right beside it. I even took them in sepia in hopes that it added to the ambiance of the moment. So, if it this is not rustic, let's just pretend for my four year old that it is K?








Would you like to play along? Or, how about checking out other's photos in this great fun? Head on over here, it will be worth your while!

I love the second one! Very rustic feel with the pine cones and the fence. And I think sepia tones help the rustic theme very much. Very nice photos!!!
