Sunday Stills: Brown

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was brown.


Friends?  Maybe they sure were curious about each other.

I missed a few challenges so here are my catchup photos.

The Letter L for a leaf and the snow which is slow leaving.



Black and White Barns

Barn at the farm

This is the barn at the farmstead where I grew up.   I learned how to milk a cow by hand in this barn.

Sunday Stills Graffiti or Murals

The Sunday Stills Challenge was Graffiti or Murals.


This is a mural located in Fosston Minnesota.  It depicts life in that area in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.


The mural is named “Thirteen Towns 1884” I took this photo last fall when there was no snow on the ground.

Have a good week everyone!

Sunday Stills: Things we take for granted

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was “Things we take for granted.”
The road home will be drivable at least one lane
Roads…and that at least one lane will be clear of snow.
That a church door will always be open and the walk will be swept clear of snow.

After the sun sets it will be back to start a new day.
Those a just a few of the things I take for granted everyday.  How about you?

Sunday Stills: Bad Weather

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was bad weather.   I have some of that!  Here in Minnesota it is cold and snowy.

White out

This is a ground blizzard.  Snow is picked up by the wind and causes white out conditions.  I took this photo at the end of our driveway.

Can you see the driveway

Here is our driveway..can’t see where it is can you?  Good thing we have another driveway we can use.

Blowing Snow

Here are some more photos of blowing snow.  I took these from inside the car as we were driving to town.  The wind chills were about –30 F that day.Ground Blizzard

I wish Spring would hurry on it’s way.  Have a good week!

Frosty Fog

Can you see the island off the point?  It was enveloped in Frosty Fog.  This was at Bad Medicine Lake earlier in the month.

We are having a blizzard here today.  I hope you have a wonderful week!

Sunday Stills: Bridges

The challenge this week was bridges.

We have/had a footbridge in town.

The foot bridge

October 2013

It is a footbridge that leads from one small park to another across the Fish Hook River. 

Well in the name of progress it was removed.

The Foot Bridge was moved

November 2013

The new footbridge is suppose to be in place in the spring.  It will be much larger and have a longer span to enable the handicapped to walk over the bridge.


November 2013 This old rail road bridge is slated to be removed too.

Last year when we vacationed in Indiana I took some photos near the Blue River.  They just leave their bridges in place and let them grow old gracefully.

Then of course there are bridges over the Ohio.  I think the John F. Kennedy Memorial Bridge was closed when we were there.  It goes from Louisville Kentucky to Jeffersonville Indiana.

I hope you all have a great week.  It warmed up here!
