Flashback Friday – Youthful Fun

This week’s Flashback Friday goes all the way back to 1983.  This photo was sent to me yesterday by my long-time friend Chad.  He’s the one posing on the ground.  He’s a very trusting sort, don’t you think?  And who is that on the motorcycle?  Yep, it’s me.  This brought back a bunch of memories, even if they’re not really vivid to my mind.  This was taken in Buchanan County, Virginia, near what was called the Hagy hill climb.  What fun!

Flashback Friday – Beautiful Barns

Okay, today’s Flashback Friday is another barn, and goes back to 2006 & 2007 to look at a few of the other barns that stick out in my memory.  (Another recent Flashback Friday had a barn too.)  I know, you thought that April was the end of the barns for a little while, but I couldn’t resist these few more.  Each of these were taken in very different surroundings, and each one has a unique appeal.  Please look them over and leave a comment if you’ve seen any similar in your area.

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!

This barn is located in West Virginia.  I’m not quite sure whether it’s located in Monroe County or in Greenbrier County.  This shot was taken in February of 2006.

This barn is located in Ohio, and I think it is in Scioto County.  It may be in Adams County however – I’m not sure.  This was taken in August of 2007.

Flashback Friday – Hogan at 2005 U.S. Open, Pinehurst

This Flashback Friday post is from the 2005 U.S. Open Championship held at Pinehurst.  Hogan and I were there for the Wednesday practice round.  Cameras are only allowed during the practice rounds.  That was a very long day.  We left Radford at 4:00 am, and arrived at the tournament parking area by 9:30 am.  We walked the entire course that day, in 90 degree heat, and finally left around 5:00 pm.  It’s hard to believe that was already 4 years ago.  I was fortunate enough to also be at the 1999 U.S. Open held at Pinehurst.  Enjoy the photos, and have a great weekend.

Flashback Friday – Sharp-shinned Hawk

This sharp-shinned hawk sits atop a car in a Wal-Mart parking lot, waiting, and watching, for some little unsuspecting bird.  This was taken back in December of 2006.  I love the “stare” of this bird’s eyes.  I took this with a 55mm lens and was standing VERY close to it.  Awesome!  Have a great weekend.

Flashback Friday – My Buddy Hogan

Hogan loved peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  He ate them for lunch just about every day from the time he was very little until about the age of ten.  Now, he can hardly stand the idea of having a PB&J sandwich.  This series of photos were taken just over four years ago, in March of 2005.  He was 8 at the time.  Notice the Star Wars cup too.  We love those movies and we’ve watched them lots and lots of times.  Have a great weekend!

Flashback Friday – Ruby Throated Hummingbirds

Yesterday, as I read Alan’s Hummingbird post from a few days ago, it inspired me to post a couple of hummingbird photos that I shot back in July of 2006.  The first two are males, and the last one is a female.  I haven’t spotted any in our area yet this year, but I’m ready to fill the feeder soon.  Enjoy, and have a great weekend.

Flashback Friday – Barn at Kentland Farm

This barn is located adjacent to the Kentland Farm in Montgomery County, Virginia.  The farm is owned and operated by Virginia Tech.  I wish I could take more photos on the farm there at some point, but finding the time to go (and to get permission) is really tough.  The farm is located next to the New River near McCoy.  This was taken back in February of 2006.  Have a great weekend!
