Focusing Through the Lens: Week 29

Hello again this week! It is Wednesday, which means a new post in the weekly series of Focusing Through the Lens. I know we just went on a drive on Monday, but I did promise I would be better about posting on the day I started on, so here we are! Are you ready for another drive down back roads? It has been too hot with the humidity to get out and go for a weekend hike but don’t fret, because soon there will be another adventure for us to go on which involves some water here in Arkansas. Grab your water bottle, comfy shoes, and get ready to ride!

hay and red barn
If there is anything down here in Southwest Arkansas, are an abundance of barns. Last week I shared a lot of barns, but they are some of my favorite things to photograph. This lovely red barn was just off to the right in a field filled with hay. As we drove by, it smelled of Summer.
grown up grain bin
This over-grown grain silo can be found on a dirt road which is very rarely traveled in Nevada County. This is one of those things I have passed many times and always forget to grab a picture of it. Sometimes, we tend to go down roads we have been on before and I tend to find new things to look at.
grown up barn
This barn was actually part of a pair. The other will show up some time in a new post. Both barns look like they have not been used in a long time. This one is my favorite of the two. The way the vines have started to take the structure back amazes me. Nature is a force which takes what it wants.
old house
This old home again was part of a pair. The other building is more of storage area. I will share it as well. This home is off a main highway just outside of Hope. With it being on private property, I did not get a chance to go up to or inside because I don’t want to get in trouble with the property owner or law enforcement. Even though this picture looks like I was standing in the field, I was standing on the side of the highway with one of my bigger lens. As you can see here, the windows are mostly gone and the door is boarded up. Some of the siding is coming off and the chimney is missing some bricks. Even though there are imperfections, this house has so much charm.

Thank you for coming along for another drive. I would love to hear what you would like to see in pictures. Feel free to comment and share what you want to see. As you can see I love old barns, buildings, and landscape. I can’t wait to hear from you!
