05.26.2016 Photographic whack-a-mole

So it’s a landscape one day, then a flower, then a landscape then a flower, then…

Well, what’s different here is that there is some human influence in the way of some farm buildings.  I don’t usually have “hand of man” in my images, but I like this farm and its view to the east with lowland fog most mornings.  I got out of the house a little late, so stayed around town and thought this would work out

Thistlebloom-Farm-Sunrise-052616-960This farm is for sale and should draw some interest, but not mine at 7 figures. It wasn’t actively farmed.  The owner had a few goats and a horse or two.  She’s an artist and psychotherapist and, I guess, the farm made both for inspiration and a calming influence.

Although a few miles away, this is a similar landscape to this earlier post a few days ago.

    Take out a loan for 6 of the 7 figures. It might be a perfect place.

  2. A hand-of-man image serves as an occasional change of pace.

    Is Thistlebloom her name for the farm, or yours? It’s nice. It certainly recalls midwestern farms, with the silo(s), the barn with the big door at the hayloft, and what I’d guess to be a good-sized machine shed. Seven figures? I wonder if she’d consider $11,387.12?

    It’s a great view. I’m glad you stopped.

    • Thistlebloom is her name. Although it is hard to discern, it is painted above the barn door. It’s been on the market for a little while now but I don’t think those are the 7 figures she has in mind. 🙂
      This was my second stop. I believe there will be more once autumn and or more fog arrives.


  4. Very reminiscent of a place I used to know. If Thistlebloom wasn’t actively farmed for even a short time, it’ll be quite a job to get it back up-and-running. The last few years that we farmed, it took all of our energies to keep in one place, let alone move forward. When we realized that, we knew it was time for someone else to take the wheel. Now that we’re (sort of) settled up here, we glad we made the change. Nice shot. Another prize for getting up and running so early.

    • For the last few years, as far as I can tell, it has just been mowed…some by humans and some by goats. Often times we resist making a change such as you and Joanna have made, only to realize what a good move it was once completed.

      If only I were worthy of the prize. The inability to fall back to sleep after my 1:00 to 2:00 bathroom trip gets all the credit for that.
