On Saturday I decided to drive into town and see if there were any garage sales... I haven't been to a garage sale since spring and felt like I needed my 'junkin fix'.
I thought I'd take my camera along and travel the country road just to the north of us.
It's a sweet winding road with typical 'country' scenes of fields, windmills, cows, creeks and old barns.
I had been looking forward to taking pictures of one old barn that I loved with a wonderful cupola on the top. As I was looking for a good shot from the side road I spotted another old barn so pulled over and walked over to the fence to get my shot. Just then the elderly owner came out of the driveway in a 1966 Chevy pickup.
He was such a sweet fellow who was wearing a huge grin as he drove up.
Turns out he also owned the barn I was originally looking for but unfortunately had torn it down a few months earlier. He told me I could just go into his farmyard and take all the pictures I wanted but since he wasn't going to be home I told him I'd come back another time. I was surprised at his offer but that's typical of country folk around here. As I was looking for a spot to turn around I spotted this old building in his yard that I just had to get a picture of right away.
It's the building above...isn't it sweet!
I finally arrived in town and found only one garage sale but it didn't have anything I couldn't live without. I was disappointed but satisfied with the pictures that I had taken.
I really feel bad that I never got a picture of that old barn before it had been torn down as I had been wanting to do that for about a year. It taught me a valuable lesson though...if you see something you'd like to get a picture of...don't wait because it may not be there when YOU'RE finally ready.
I think that's a good lesson for all of us in many ways.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
