Wordless Wednesday
"Timeless"


"I think the extent to which I have any balance at all, any mental balance, is because of being a farm kid and being raised in those isolated rural areas."
- James E. Jones

wow -- there are so many unexpected rich colors in this shot, not just from the truck and barn. you can see pinks in the sky that get deeper the closer they get to the ground. and you can see all sorts of red in the grass!

Hi Blue,

Thanks for your recent visit and comments on Harper's Ferry. We did come in on 68. I dropped down from PA and I-70 and came through Cumberland and Hagerstown. How neat! I unfortunately didn't have enough time to take pictures there but i could have spent hours.

We came back on the south side on I-64 missing the "sniper" by a couple of hours I guess. I saw the police on the bridges doing their investigations. Between Beckley and Charleston it rained on us so I couldn't see much.

Have been to the Cass WV area once also.

Thanks again for the visit. I love West Virginia and could spend days there.

An old barn and a truck....classic. I love it! Hope you have a good weekend!

Oh... I relate to that quote! And I love, love, love the red barn and truck together. Wonderful.

Beth said...

What a lovely, serene shot, Blue. I love the quote, too, and relate to it. Although I didn't grow up on a farm, I often visited my Grandpa's farm in Greensboro, NC. It was there that I felt most at "home."

rebecca said...

Oh, man! It's scenes like this that make me love living in WV.

Excellent photo, by the way! Do you publish your work? (Besides on this blog.) You really should!
