We got to hang out as a family this weekend. It’s fun to see how the girls aren’t just sisters anymore, but friends as well.
Yesterday, I posted the account of how my macro addiction (I call it “crack-ro”) distracted me from photographing an old barn. Here is the barn shot:This barn is about a mile or two from the abandoned house I posted a photo of on May 9. The road is winding and hilly. One that feels comforting and lonely at the same time.
I used my 100-400 zoom@220mm on this shot because I didn’t want to trespass, and plus there were some distracting tree shadows in the foreground. iso 50; f/5.6; 1/250
Is anyone else having trouble with moire when they reduce the size of their photos? I ended up posting the giant file on this post because the moire in the sky was so bad on the limited file size version. My shot from May 9 has awful moire in the sky as well.
I’ve been absent from WordPressWorld for several days. For part of the time I’ve been out in central Nebraska with the Sandhill cranes. What a sight to see! Half a million of them stop in Nebraska on their way from Mexico to Canada for the summer.

I hope you’ve all had a great week, and I’m sorry I haven’t been very faithful to keep up with all the haps in your corner of the blogosphere. After next week, I hope to be more present!
2016–A year of courage
