A bit of traveling came in handy for weeks 34 and 35 themes. Neither are strong techniques of mine but I found them fun and challenging.
During week 35 I was in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on a little trip with my mom and my daughter. We stayed at The Australian Walkabout Inn and were spoiled with a hot tub in our room and wonderfully made breakfasts.
We visited amish farms where we purchased homemade goods and colorful fabrics. The Sight and Sound Theatre took our breath away with the production of Joseph and we squeezed in some school shopping before heading home.
Among the beautiful scenery to be had in Lancaster are the wonderful old barns. The designs are ingenious with sides that open up for drying the years harvest. This barn is full of tabacco.
Minimalist photography is a genere that I really enjoyed. The Webster dictionary defines it as a style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity. It usually includes a simple subject or scene with wide open spaces and unusual angles, geometric patterns, or simple lines.
During this week I had traveled to Long Island to visit family and spent a couple of days on the beautiful beaches that grace the shoreline.
I took this photo of the George Washington Bridge shortly after crossing it on my way home. It's the first time I have ever stopped at the lookout on the Palasades Parkway in New Jersey. How lovely the city skyline is against the setting sun.
