One Hundred Steps

March 4th, 2009 · 10 Comments

Paige over at Shutter Sisters posted a 100 Step Challenge a few days ago.

The instructions – grab your camera and take 100 steps out of your door. Start photographing!

I did this the day before our latest snowstorm.  I must admit I knew where I wanted to end up. My husband has some old tractor implements near the woods-line on our property.  I thought I might see what I could come up with there.  Here’s what I found!

Don’t forget!  Monday Memories are starting…on Monday, March 9, 2009!  Get ready with your links to memories, old and new!  I want to hear them!

    Hi ELK!
    Thank you!

    Hi spread your wings!
    I didn’t think I would find anything worth photographing either!

    Hi Shalet!
    Me too! Before I became interested in photography, I never realized rust was so cool!

    I love the photographs!

    I’m also still alive and have been reading faithfully but have been too busy to comment at all.
