2013 Project 365

Project 365/229 – Along a Country Road


A short road trip to Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania was planned today for a business luncheon. In the outskirts of town, on a windy country road we arrived to the restaurant.

As luck would have it, I had the forethought to throw my Canon G12 into the car. Hoping to come across a photo op. And a photo op appeared. Appear it did. Right across the street was a large gardening center with a creative garden and field with old farm equipment.

Overgrown with plantings, these beasts of metal have become part of the landscape.


The lawn was being freshly mowed, and old hay Β bales were stacked on a wagon near the corn field.


There was a lovely hummingbird garden, with a bench for resting and enjoying the peaceful surroundings.


And a small vegetable garden. See how simple it is to create your own?

I wish I had more time to explore, but duty called. Keep your eyes opened, where ever you are. You never know what you may find. Β Bella


Surely there is grandeur in knowing that in the realm of thought, at least, you are without a chain; that you have the right to explore all heights and depth; that there are no walls nor fences, nor prohibited places, nor sacred corners in all the vast expanse of thought.

Robert Green Ingersoll

  1. Love these, especially that truck completely “loaded” with greenery and flowers! What wonderful planting ideas! πŸ™‚ And you’re so right about carrying a camera everywhere with you…I’ve started to do that more and I’m usually very pleased that I do!

  2. Even though I did all of my limited farming on a John Deere, I still like those old Farmall A tractors. I wonder how many of them are sitting around much like the one that you photographed so well? That’s also a novel use for the old truck.

    You say that a garden like that is simple to create, you should work on one with my ex before making such a statement. πŸ˜‰

  3. Superb photos Emily ! I’m impressed by the first one, it’s a really good photo. It’s always great to visit your blog and look at your photography. Have a great week-end πŸ™‚

    • I truly do appreciate your comments, it really helps me to know if I’m on the right track or not. I wasn’t super happy with the first image. The composition is solid, but the lighting was terrible. The life of an explorer, you take what you get right?
      Thank you so very much for your kind response, and truly do appreciate you.
