Buildings and Trees and Memories



I love the buildings and trees theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week.

The first photo, above, is of a home that can be seen nestled among the trees and mountains. I wonder if the view from the house is as beautiful as the view of it!

The next photo, below, was taken during a recent visit to a near-by park. A picnic shelter can be seen through the stark trees that have lost, or are in the process of losing, their leaves.

The third picture shows colorful trees surrounding a gazebo, barn and a historic building that may actually be a town museum. I will have to investigate further! The view is across from a duck pond that I posted about earlier.

I was a bit creative in my final photo selection. The nest in my backyard tree was initially built by a robin. But later in the summer, a crafty squirrel added on to it and claimed it as his own!



I enjoyed searching through my photo archives for this challenge, reminiscing about the day and people attached to each one. Isn’t it great how simple photos can evoke memories and emotions?
