“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

A beautiful morning...just a little chilly.

Look at that sky. Much better than having the barn light on when I go out to do chores.

Gary helped me and went down for coffee. When he got back we started to dismantel the indoor.

Jenny, Kevin and the kids came up so we got things done more quickly.

Around noon everything was cleared out and I had to drag the indoor three times (as it got packed down last night)

Around 2, Karen, her friend Linda and Karen's girls came out to the farm. The plan was for her to ride Abbe. Of course she did not want to get caught...then she was not behaving. Groomed her, then line drove her for a few minutes....looks like there is a slight problem in her hind left leg...possibly in the hock. Karen decided not to ride and did some simple lateral work instead.

I will continue to do this to see if we can get her back into shape. (She has had a very long break from work).

The girls love playing in the barn loft.

When we were finishing up, my brother arrived. He is in the area with friends doing some fishing. His name is Gary too.

He was kind enough to treat us to dinner at the Golden Eagle. No cooking for me tonight!

I took these two shots from his truck on the way home. The night skies were as gorgeous as those this morning. Maybe even nicer.

Home by 6 and went out to do chores. The horses were ready for dinner.

Back to the house just when the sun was about to set...

and the moon was high in the sky. Tomorrow is another day. Night all.
