Wandering in Sunny Ohio
December 22, 2019
Last Sunday may have been sunny (yay!), but it was cold. For most of the time I was out, I shot from the car window. It began to warm a bit toward noon, and I ventured out to see what I could see better on foot.
1 Some trees almost beg to have their portrait taken.
2 I have a small collection of lone trees in farmers’ fields. See Cowshade for Ghosts.
3 I don’t see many cows in my peregrinations. But this sweet lady posed nicely for me.
4 As she approached the fence, a few of her friends joined her.
5 And then a few more . . .
6 And a few more . . .
7 Soon the whole gang was there. Until they became bored and drifted away.
8 I got out of the car to catch this millstone. I assume the grooves are from grinding grain. Many people around here display these stones in their yards. I’m glad they do.
9 This is the side that first attracted me.
10 I was happy to see that the coloration was lichens rather than paint.
11 The bits of color on this old metal post could be paint, but I rather think they’re layers of rust.
12 This is part of an old guard rail, I think.
14 The new guard rail is attached to an older post.
17 Walking back to the car, I saw where someone had lost their pull-tab collection.
