Once again I've been looking for things to blog about other than my crafts. I love taking pictures and it's something that one day, given enough time, I'd like to learn more about. Maybe after all of these Nursing classes I'll be able to enroll in some photography classes.
The pictures that I want to share today are of a post-Civil War era cabin in Virginia that my great-grandmother lived in. I'm going to post the pics ten at a time in order to not overload the blog uploader :)
You can click the photos to make them bigger. I uploaded them as "extra-large", which looks good here, but I'm sure if I ever change my blog template I'll end up regretting it as extra-large photos always seems to run over the edges. Anyway, I hope you enjoy them!
The original cabin can be seen on the left side. Other sections were added on some time later.
The cabin is nestled among these enormous hills.
No one has lived in the cabin for a long time. It's now used by the current owners for storage.
An old wooden gate at the back of the property.
One of the wells on the land, with a hand pump.
The side of the cabin showing the chimney.
One of the numerous outbuildings.
A back view of the cabin.
I just loved the color of this rusted gate. I did have to edit these a bit to get the colors to match what I actually saw the day I took the photos.
I loved the look of the mold on these old fence posts.
This is probably my favorite picture from that day. The colors of this outbuilding and the surrounding greenery were just so beautiful!
