Yesterday, I didn’t take one single photo! That’s a little unusual. The folder for 19/07/2011 is non-existing. I always, always bring the camera when we go out … I just don’t want to risk coming across something awesome without it. Then I would bite myself in my non-existing tail.
There are some of my own photos I like more than the others … some, that I’m really pleased with — of course, otherwise I wouldn’t go on taking pictures. I’ve put them in a folder of their own in my Picasa. When I look at them sometimes, I realize that most of them wouldn’t have been shot had it not been, thanks to Mother Nature’s cooperation. Very few are of buildings or structures. Maybe that’s just not my ‘thing’. I really love those rolls of hay, but this year I haven’t come across any so this shot is from August last year. We went out that day in order to shoot hay bales, and boy, did we see some awesome ones. I think it was the hottest day of that year — each time I got out of the car, I almost suffocated.
This is what it used to look like, back home, when I was a kid. I never see these structures … hay racks … anymore. In Swedish it’s called «hässja» and that’s both a noun and a verb. Nowadays you only see those big, white ‘balls’. A comedian on the radio said that he’d thought they were eggs laid by UFO:s 🙂
