Back Road Exploring

image

Red Barn Somewhere in Georgia

I love the simple things in Life.

Taking long drives with no destination in mind, is one of those things. With music blaring, and my camera within reach, I am happy as hell.
My husband and I will take an “Us” weekend and instead of nice hotels with spa treatments and shopping sprees, i choose parks and random spots on the map. My daughters use to love it too, until they realized what being bored is.
I love finding random stuff, especially old structures, rusty old cars, and vintage Coca-Cola signs on abandoned stores. Barns are one of my favs too. This is one I found while on one of our back road exploration trips, somewhere in Georgia. I will have to share more of my collection of what i call “Delicious Decay”, eventually. Hope yall dig it!

There is Fungus Among Us

I love living in the country, for many reasons. The quiet, the small community, being close to nature, and the lack of traffic to name a few. My in-laws have 60 acres of farmland and woods that my girls and I love to explore. We especially love hunting for mushrooms. We find the coolest looking fungi, all different sizes, shapes and colors. I never mind getting dirty when getting down low to get a good angle. Smurf level. This is one of my favs.

No snooze Saturday

Every Saturday Morning I have an alarm set to wake me up in hopes of photographing a gorgeous Sunrise. Unfortunately, I always hit the snooze button one too many times, losing the opportunity to catch it. I’ve even set My alarm to puzzle mode thinking it would keep me from sleeping in. This morning I hit it once, thankfully I only live a mile from this spot in Mistletoe State Park. I just did catch the beautiful sky right before the sun peeked over the trees. These dudes in the boat were hauling Ass by me wearing winter gear and goggles. I’m sorry but fishing isn’t worth freezing my Ass off even though I love it.

I hate Spiders

wp-1448709993520.jpegI hate Spiders so much. This guy almost gave me a heart attack while hunting for mushrooms in the woods with my daughters yesterday. I pulled some mad ninja moves when I looked down and saw him on my boot.  Seriously, it was a near death experience, shaving years off my life. I freaked out, but was able to snap a pic before he crawled away. Sweet pic after such a traumatic experience. O.. The things we do to get a great shot.
