One afternoon Paul and I got the chance to take a walk around the area where his parents live. The weather was just about perfect, and the lighting was great for taking pictures. We got to test our skills.
This is the driveway of the neighbors across the street. We used it to cut over to a sunflower field.
Holy Family. I love all the windows, it makes it so bright inside.
Lots of sunflowers.
And thistles, too.
This one had a little bee-looking thing on it.
The trees hanging over made it feel like a secret path.
A little iridescent spider web we spotted.
Just a bee, doing it’s thing.
“Whoa, lady, too close. Time to go!”
I love the ivy-covered look.
A monarch butterfly caterpillar.
Paul found a milkweed to release it on. Now the little fella won’t starve.
An abandoned house.
It’s falling apart and boarded up now, but it was probably pretty awesome once upon a time.
The basement. Kind of cool, but kind of creepy, too.
An oven? A grill? Whatever it is, I like it.
This stump needs some flowers.
It was great to spend a little time alone with Paul, and it really was a lovely walk.
