I’m SO excited to post this photoshoot, because I think it’s one of my favorites ever! The evening was certainly wonderful. ❤ Plus, the lighting was so perfect I didn’t have to edit most of these at all! Definitely a bonus.
Alright, I shall begin with supper. 😉 Last Sunday the weather was so nice that we brought our supper out on the upstairs balcony. It was quite a nice place to eat, especially because of the view.
Since it was such a nice evening, we decided to drive around the farm afterwards. We usually use Dad’s old, custom-built green truck for such things, but it wasn’t working, so we used the newer, red truck. 😉 While I was waiting for everyone to finish supper, I took some pretty golden pictures of the yard. 😛
We have three Crepe Myrtle bushes in the backyard, which I LOVE! Except for the fact that one is kind of dying, but…
Ahh, the LIGHTING!
When everyone was ready, all the kids hopped on the back and Mom and Dad rode up front. For some reason my siblings brought along a stuffed animal monkey puppet as a mascot or something? *shakes head* Weirder things have happened. He doesn’t look much like a monkey in this picture since he’s tucked into the hole… actually he looks quite depressed and hunched over. O.o POOR MONKEY.
Now, let the beautiful farm landscapes begin! 😀
Maggie loves running along with us when we drive around in the truck or the UTV. She can run pretty fast, too – about 20 mph!
Heh heh, kind of blurry… but neat? I’m not sure what that flying thing is beside Maggie. Maybe a dragonfly or something.
Ah, I LOVE this one! I have it for my desktop background, actually.
Look at the cute little rainbow flare! 😀
The nice thing about using the truck was that could drive through weeds taller than the truck bed. Jeff really wanted to come back and bush hog the pasture. (A Bush Hog is kind of like a heavy-duty mower, in case you were wondering.) Jeff loves bush hogging. XD
My younger siblings kept hopping off the truck to run behind it or, in Megan’s case, pick wildflowers. XD We also passed what we thought was a paulownia tree (a weedy tree that has ENORMOUS leaves), but Megan and Jeff tried to pull off some leaves in passing when the truck went by and kept saying “POLYNEEESSIA, POLYNEEESSIA” in strange voices. I think they preferred their pronunciation. *rolls eyes* XD
Ahh, the golden sun streaming down upon… a lovely pile of tires. : The previous farm owners used them to stack hay on, but when we cleaned out the shop they had to go somewhere, so… It’s too bad it costs money to dispose of them.
Heh heh, as we passed the gas pumps, I told Megan, “I’m going to take an aesthetic picture of the gas tanks!” XD And hey, actually I kind of did! What do you know. I’m pretty sure anything would look pretty with this lighting.
Ahhhhh I love these pictures too! I love the gleaming tassles on the corn.
Gotta love those GPS-straight cornrows! 🙂 Dad uses a GPS program thingy in his tractors to make sure the crops are planted evenly. Isn’t it amazing how much technology has pervaded EVERYTHING? It IS rather handy, though.
I think we should make this shed into a picnic shelter, don’t you agree? Wouldn’t it look lovely with a mini lightbulb garland or two, and a cleared space around it and inside it?
This is the last picture from the photoshoot. We drove on further, but when we turned the corner here it started to get pretty dim, so I didn’t get pictures of it. But ahh… *happy sigh* That was a GREAT evening. I absolutely love exploring the farm with my family! It’s one of my favorite things to do, especially when I have my camera. 😉 I hope you enjoyed exploring along with us!
So tell me, do you have a favorite picture? Does a red truck ride sound fun to you? Have you ever tried to take an aesthetic picture of something ugly? And do my siblings sound a bit strange to you? XD (Don’t worry, they’re great. 😉 )
Thank you so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
P. S. Guess what? I (basically) FINISHED SETTING UP MY ART STUDIO! It looks amazing, and I LOVE using it so far! I hope to post a tour next week sometime, so stay tuned. 😀
