Sunday Stills: THE LETTER "T"


This week’s word for Sunday Stills is the Letter “T”. As I took pictures today, I tried to think of different ways and angles that I could shoot the photos.

Spruce Trees are beautiful. They remind me of my childhood. We always had a Blue Spruce Christmas tree lit for the holidays.

My Trailer takes me and my horses where I want to go. Our rides are in all kinds of terrain, from the flat prairie to the windy hills.

Our old, brown, F250 farm Truck,

And our old Tractors. One ancient yellow tractor,

and one green, an older John Deere.

And our old tractor Tires.

These are the “T” pics that I took as I walked outside today. The day is sunny, but cool 40’s. My hands were chilled as I came in, so I wrapped them around a hot mug of coffee. (But I couldn’t think of a “T” word for that cup of coffee!)

Wonderful selections for this week's challenge. I like the old tractors and the peek into your trailer. How wonderful that you take your horses out to such varied terrain.

Have a great day!

Do you ever put those tractors in parades? We have a local parade every June that is loaded with tractors from different eras.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Ed, Im enjoying the picture taking time! Thanks, Lisa, yes I especially love riding in the hills. dibear, thanks for the welcome! Kate, I'll look forward to seeing what you post next week, too. NMuzzles, well...if my husband would work on that old yellow tractor, it might be tractor show worthy. The John Deere actually runs well - somehow, that pic makes it look really old. I guess it's time to clean it up!
