Barns of Litchfield County
I purchased a new lens this week, a Lensbaby Sol45. I have fallen in love with Lensbaby's line of creative lenses and was eager to try this one out. This purchase coincided with my desire to start a new photography project as well. While I had begun the year doing a photojournal titled Project 365, I found it difficult to keep up with and stopped after about four months. It was while driving to my piano lesson that I came up with the idea to photograph barns. I am lucky to live in a part of Connecticut where barns are plentiful and each are beautiful in their own way.
I carry a special place in my heart for barns, for not only do I currently live in a renovated barn but 37 years ago I was married in one! At the time I was not really pleased that my home church was housed in a barn (I dreamt of walking down a long aisle in a church with stained glass windows), but now I love that it was.
I am really excited about my new project as well as learning how to master my new lens. Have you begun any new photography projects lately? I'd love to know!
Sending a little whimsy and joy your way,
