Tara and I decided to go to the movies on Wednesday afternoon. The movie "Shorts" was a silly movie definitely for the kids. It was entertaining enough to keep me awake (well most of the time), and something cool for us to do out of the house.
I decided to take a short detour on the way home and we stopped at Whistlestop Park in Colmar (it is right near a train station!). We had been there when Tara was young, and she vaguely remembered it. It was hot, but when we first arrived with the sun covered by clouds, and a nice breeze it was pleasant enough. Even at 12, Tara loves a good playground!
My other reason for stopping here was to photograph the "round" (actually octagonal barn). There has been a round barn on this site for as long as I can remember, but I believe the structure that is there now has been rebuilt. I love the colors of the stone and the green used for the doors and windows. They also have a great red shed on the property that really completes the picture!
There was a field with some great wildflowers and lots of tiny grasshoppers. The breeze was blowing strongly making it difficult to capture the flowers, and the tiny grasshoppers would not stay still for me!
I applied some filters in PSE to make these not look out of focus!
I loved this lone red leaf, a sign that fall is not too far away!
It was a close to home adventure, but one that I enjoyed!
