Mom’s-Eye View of the Homestead

By , May 21, 2011

Seeing the homestead and its surroundings in a new light seems like a recurring theme lately. I got permission from my mother-in-law to post some of the photos she took while visiting us this week. I find it interesting to see what others decide to record. Mom’s an artist, so many of her photos are reference shots for future paintings.

Here’s a sampling of the homestead through her eyes:
