I first noticed a Road Closed notice by the road at the corner on Sunday. Today I thought I’d better stop and read it. It really isn’t very big, how a driver is meant to read it while negotiating the corner or whizzing past is beyond me. I couldn’t find a pen and I’d have forgotten those details before I’d driven the 12 odd minutes to home, so out came the camera. I usually have the essentials handy.
Darn, I’m driving home between those hours! Will I leave early or work late?
So, the camera was out of the bag and it took a lot longer than the usual 12 minutes to find my way home. It won’t take much more rain to bring the creek over it’s banks but the cows don’t look worried.
I've taken dozens of photos of this old shed over the past few years and always it's been just a bit too far away for my camera. Today I must have stopped at the right spot!
While my luck was in I decided to try once again for a decent shot of our neighbours little old shed that sits right beside the road. I think it is more photogenic now than it was a couple of years old. Just needs a few more years of weathering, I think.
My other stop along the road wasn't really to take a photo. This adventuruous pair were outside the fence and I nearly went past thinking they would find their way back in to their mother when they were hungry. But I thought I saw a collar around a neck, so stopped and reversed. Sure enough. They are bound to be pet lambs so I chased them back up the road and up the drive to Niamh and Archer's home. Could have a champion lamb there, kids.
