Scarlett got to go with me on my trip to Arkansas a few weeks ago. I think she had more fun than I did. She absolutely loves the country! She was born on a farm, and I remember picking her up the day we got her, and seeing her follow around the other animals on the land. She was in heaven at 9 weeks old!
When we arrived at my aunt and uncle's, Scarlett immediately made herself at home, rolling through the dead grass, chasing cats from the front porch, hunting the sweet smell of deer that get fed each day on the land, and making new discoveries in and around the barn. The last pictures show her going crazy over her most coveted find, an old bone discarded by Sadie, my aunt and uncle's dog that gets to live out in the country all the time. Scarlett is secretly jealous of Sadie!
Scarlett had such a great time, and I know she didn't want to leave. At least I know if my mom ever has to babysit, Scarlett will have a ball. Here are some pictures I took of our little country girl!

Last week, I took a trip to Arkansas and stayed at my aunt and uncle's house in the country. They live on ten acres outside Jacksonville, complete with a beautiful wrap-around porch, a pond, a barn, and many many deer. It was a great opportunity to take pictures of some fun objects around the property, especially because Michael and I live in a townhome that lacks a yard or any character. One afternoon, I went outside to see what I could find, and I caught myself taking pictures of rusty objects in the barn. Yes RUST! Maybe it's because I don't see rusty nails or tools or even rusty chicken wire hiding in my 12x12 paved "backyard," but I found myself seeing beauty in some of these old, inanimate objects found in the country. I had a lot of fun taking these pictures because I usually enjoy taking pictures of flowers. Here are some of my picture capturing a much looked over element I learned to love one afternoon - RUST!

Well, I've missed taking pictures! Hopefully, I'm going to be posting a lot more of my photography very soon. With the gray, lifeless weather we have been having in Knoxville, I haven't found anything worth photographing. But spring is slowly coming out of it's cave, and I can't wait to shoot flowers and blue skies! I am making a trip back home to Arkansas this weekend, so hopefully I will have some great photos to share. Please be patient and check back soon! In the meantime, check out my other blog at www.justaguyagirlandadog.blogspot.com or follow me on twitter!
Here's looking forward to spring!
