Traveling On the Road
Out and About
I love looking around when we’re traveling on the road. Always on the lookout for interesting scenes. No exception last week when we took a little road trip from Indy to Brown County, IN. The stretch between Bean Blossom and Nashville (Indiana) caught my eye. The landscape and buildings almost depict a bygone era. The two buildings above serve as a good example of what I mean. I tinted the photo to enhance its “old time” and antique appearance which is how I perceived the scene in my mind.
Not far away from those two buildings, on the same road, was this home sitting proudly and squarely on its lot. Note the mailbox just off the road which adds to a sense of permanence despite the fact it’s a trailer. Probably not an uncommon scene found on the road in rural America. Nice spot for a home, I might add.
Such a cool sight on the same road, within walking distance. The proud Mennonite Church with strong black and white contrast (even in color!) stood out dramatically on the road. But, I was particularly drawn to the message on the sign which reads, “Strangers Expected.” The sky added to the drama of the scene.
You may have heard about the town called Bean Blossom since there’s a well known Bill Monroe Bean Blossom Bluegrass Music Festival there each year.
Thanks to all of you who follow and subscribe to this blog! It’s fun for me as I hope it is for you, too. I have plans to update things a bit in the coming weeks. Design, layout, overall appearance, etc. Also, easier and more efficient links and subscribing options. And keep an eye on my website which will also be refreshed and updated. I’m hoping there won’t be too many glitches! (Notice I didn’t say “any” glitches.) So, please hang in there with me as things get improved. I’ve got lots of ideas for future posts and topics, too.
Hope to see each other on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, too!
Thanks for stopping by!
