•change of pace•

I love the city. The noises, the smells, the weirdos, the crowds. But it's really nice to have somewhere to go and get away from it every now and then. Lucky for me, I grew up in the middle of nowhere!

I took so many photos this past week, but here is just a sample--this is where I come from! Some of them (like the one below) are right out the back window of my parents house, and others are down roads I've drove 100s of times and never really appreciated how photogenic an overgrown field can be.

enjoy.

These are absolutely beautiful! I can't believe places like that exist. Life seems too busy and hectic to actually have places like that.

I love the two with the old barn. Your use of light is amazing. such talent!

p.s. did you know that your pictures aren't published in google reader? maybe it's intentional, in which case i wouldn't blame you at all! but reader is showing that you have quite a few subscribers.... ;)

These absolutely rock!!!!!!!! I love all the settings...so amazing! You really are making me feel like I need to be on vacay right now! Thanks so much for sharing these.

Such talent, Sheena. These pictures are like icons of the West - big sky, lazy streams, grassy fields, and of course abandoned old shacks. I really like that one with the barn/shack though because just around the bend, there's like another world all lit up with trees. I love how you play with the light and your creative camera angles. I think you should put some of these up in your house! (Just don't let miss grubby hands get to them. jk)=)

As I scrolled down and saw the beautiful scenes, I thought, that looks like it could be Montana. Where did you grow up? I too, am a Montana girl, moving from there when I was 14. I still LOVE to go back and visit.

Mom of Mix Kids said...

Wow what a small world. I was born in Dillon and although we moved away when I was little, we moved back and I went to Jr. High there. I also lived in Cut Bank for six years, K-4th grade. My grandparents still live in Shelby, and we still visit Dillon too. So fun.

So I don't even know how I came upon your blog, but I was just checking my "favorites" last night and it was on there. I must have added it a while ago when I did more blog hopping. I love your pictures, so they must have left an impression on me back then too. Really, I only have a few things in my favorites list. LOVE your work. Thanks for commenting back. Good to chat with ya.

That is so cool! My parents are in Shelby right now visiting my grandparents. Yes, it is fun to meet you. I'll been stopping by quite a bit, I'm sure.
