Depth of Field, Farm and Time:
This Door County farm barn has evolved into a winery gallery through the passage of time.
The dashboard on our Mazda indicates 9 F. The clock on St. Joe’s steeple Indicates 4:50 PM, early evening at the Appleton PAC. Numb fingers set the Nikon’s dials and the photo is taken, hopefully achieving the desired DOF “evening circle.”
We photographed a walker through the center of a circle of an armrest as she walked through the lobby of Appleton’s City Center. We only show you her boots; you have to imagine the rest of her.
“Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin’ until then.”

Twin lens reflex. The top lens serves as the photographer’s viewing eye while the bottom lens is the camera’s taking eye.

We both learned to appreciate the benefits of sunglasses while recuperating from cataract surgery, Lois last winter and John this winter. The world is a lot brighter now. We can even see our camera settings.

A unique combination of variously sized tumbler pins ensures that our locks are not keyed like everybody else’s.
Our house key’s grooves and cogs were measured to determine the appropriate tumbler pins and key blank to be used in our new dead bolt lock.
The key to our old dead bolt lock on our back door refused our admittance so we visited Ace Hardware and found our helpful hardware man. A new lock and key were required.
Happy to have completed three years of photo challenge blogging.
Our Christmas tree is filled with these hand crocheted snowflakes. Lois’ mom crocheted them and for years gave them as gifts. Our tree is full of them, all memories of Mother.
