New kids on the block


Today, I decided to introduce myself to the new kids on the block. Spring had finally arrived in Clay County, Indiana, and they were kicking up their heels (hooves)  in the barnyard across the road from the country church I grew up in, was baptized in, and still worship in today. I did a little dance myself through the barnyard … if you know what I mean.

26/52 Charlie and friends


I met Charlie and friends in May on a drive through the remote Clay County, Indiana, countryside. Charlie’s the mule (in the center) without the jackass attitude. He was quite curious, allowing me time to get a couple of good photos. Big Dan the Clydesdale, on the other hand, was a real horse’s ass during the whole visit.

I learned their names when the rancher stepped out on his veranda (thankfully without his rifle) and yelled, “I charge a quarter a picture.”

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.

Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
