Admittedly, this “shoot” is what I would refer to as a “hodgepodge” of sorts. Many of these are random shots which don’t really seem to fit together with any type of rhyme or reason…
Perhaps I should explain these here, and you can then know when/why these were taken.
The cat: I was sitting in the living room and the Monk’s cat chose to lounge in a shaft of sunlight coming in from the window. I thought it might make an interesting shot, so, lying on the floor, I took it.
Leeds: This was taken in an old building for the Civilian Conservation Corps which, during the great depression, employed thousands of young, men who would build fire lanes, construct facilities in national forests, and plant thousands of acres worth of trees. The two photos farther down of the doorknobs are from similar buildings adjacent to this one.
Gas Pump: An interesting pump with a price we can only now envy. Found it in St. George.
Vase & Handle: These two photos were taken of an old pitcher and bowl in a bead and breakfast located in St. George. The inn is aptly named, “Green Gables.”
Alley Windows: Behind some buildings along the old main street, I found this little alley which reflected the light in a nice, eye-pleasing way.
Wood: This is actually a garage door in Toquerville. It had so many hues in the wood, I couldn’t help but stop to take a photo of it.
The Fence Latch: This was taken also at Green Gables and was one of the only surviving, original fences of one of the oldest surviving homesteads in St. George.
The Tractor: This shot was taken just before my excursion with the rattlesnake I blogged about just a few days ago. While I was taking these photos, the orange light of the setting sun glossed the landscape around me…it was breathtaking.
Quail: On my trip to Silver Reef I saw numerous quail. This one just seemed to be waiting for me to take his photo.
Red Sands: This was taken just outside of
Leeds. I was taken in with the beauty of the sand after the rains from the night before. I love the patterns left by the wind and rain.
. This was taken right after a rainstorm. The water is not usually there, however, during and after the rain, there were cataracts flowing over the smoothly-weathered sandstone formations…a good time and place to be caught in the rain. Snow Canyon State Park
The Safe: Old, rusty, kind of cool. Not much else to say.
Lightning: It looks like a tree, but it is a small bush only about three feet tall. I choose to call this, “Brought to Life” or “The Burning Bush” not sure yet to be honest…
Like I said before, this is a hodgepodge…
