July 9, 2014  While on a drive one day I noticed this pattern mounted on the side of a barn, I wondered what it was all about but never really gave it another thought.  Then a week or so later on another rural road in Carroll County I spotted another colorful pattern.  After an online search I found  what I was looking for.  These colorful displays are actually Barn Quilts and part of the American Quilt Trail Movement.  There are 12 quilts throughout my county, I will be on the lookout and photographing each and every one.   (Lots of shadows this day)  This Log Cabin quilt is located at: Thomas Tree Farm ~ 3501 Hanover Pike ~ Manchester, MD  Below is some info from the American Quilt Trail Movement site:  http://barnquiltinfo.com  Barn quilts are painted quilt squares-usually fashioned on boards and then mounted on a barn or other building. While cloth quilts are usually made up of a series of squares of the same pattern placed together, a barn quilt is almost always a single square.  In many communities, an organizing group-an arts council, a quilt guild, a 4-H club, or simply a motivated bunch of residents-work together to organize their barn quilts into a trail. Some are guided walks in a downtown area that includes historical buildings. More often, quilt trails take visitors on a drive through the countryside where barn quilts are mounted on farm buildings, on homes, along fences, and sometimes on freestanding posts. A quilt trail may include stops at galleries, farm stands, wineries and other points of interest that make the journey a day-long event.
07.10.14  Daisies.  Yesterday I did not feel well at all. I am hoping today will be a better day.
Gothic style architecture predominates in the William W. Cook Law Quadrangle at the University of Michigan. This shot shows some of that style's features along the top story and roof of the Munger residential wing of the Lawyers Club.  The rounded dome with a spike is one of four that mark the towers of the central passage through that wing into the Quad, which lies behind the viewer (photographer).  DP190-2014  Posted (late) July 9; processed ditto  Yesterday was a washout as far as getting any commenting done, for which I apologize.  Most especially because so many of you left nice comments to my own post yesterday, and there were so many great pictures on view.

12/8/09 - Christmas Colors  I thought it was kindof time to come up with another glass abstract shot.  And, I figured tis the season for red and green. So, I've been trying to get a good shot for a few days now.  I can't say that I'm totally happy with this one, but it's the best out of the batch that I took I think.      BTW, when we bought our Christmas tree, I did pass on the tree stand picture that I took to the owner.  I gave him a color and B&W version.  But, I did this after I paid.  He seemed delighted as was I. The barn pictures has been in his family for over 100 years.    Remember the elf on the shelf?  I think we have 6 elves in various forms moving around the house now:-)  It's quite magical for the boys.  They believe!      Thanks for the comments on the camelia shot.  Sasanqua camelias are fall/winter blooming plants, and I guess since NC has a very mild early winter, they look pretty well into December.    HAGD,  Maryann

Sunset after the Storm
January 14.   This is a 100 year old summerhouse in the dunes just 100 m. from the beach. I shot it just before sunset in order to get the glow in the windows and the dark BG. The foreground was darkened in order to draw all attention to this well-preserved house  .
I took this picture at an exhibition of Eduard Munch's drawings. Was awarded gold medal from our national Photographic Society

June 30...    A 250 year old house of a sea captain. The two dogs in the window have a special meaning: When they were looking out of the window the husband were at sea, when looking into the house he was at home and her special friends should stay away.
July 5 ...    From a flowerbed.  Over the next 3-4 weeks we are getting a lot of family here and are visiting friends elsewhere, so my postings may be a little sporadic. Hope to be able to comment on your fine pictures
