Story Photo: Nature Art

copyright Liz Lawson

Today, I have a special guest. Liz, from 6birds.net, is doing the Story Photo post. The picture above is one of hers. In addition to blogging, she’s a very good photographer. In her bio, there’s a link to her photos, if you want to take a look (and I recommend you do!)

I’ve been following Liz for some time. She writes about a variety of things. A few of my favorite posts are:  My Views on Bullies and Bullying, Strength, and The Art of Communication. One of the things I enjoy about Liz is that she’s always redecorating her site. It’s fun to visit because there’s always something new:~) Without further chatter from me, here’s Liz’s Story Photo post.

Big Lot

Commonly referred to as “the big lot”, this old thing is standing in the big pasture. It has gone from a steel awning with three walls to a mere structure that has been destroyed with high winds and human interference.

The old structure has been on my grandmother’s farm since she moved in over ten years ago, and it will be there undisturbed until it is made into stables for horses, but that discussion has been going on for a while.

I don’t think I want anything else to disturb it, though. I like things that are destroyed naturally sometimes – unless it affects someone or something else in a harmful way. I think this is because I feel like I’m a part of history, even if it’s only in the family. It’s just beautiful to me.

In the event that anything else does happen to it, I will always have more than a mental picture of what this structure once looked like. I love nature-made art.

The Photo Challenge

Here are a few questions I’d love to know your answer(s) to! You don’t have to answer all of them if you don’t want to!

  1. Do you live near anything you think of as a piece of history or nature-made art?
  2. If you could ask nature to turn anything into art, what would it be and why?
  3. If you could be nature for a day, what would you change in the world, and why would you change it?

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for this picture. Leave your answers in the comment box. Both Sara and I will reply!

About Me

I’m a twenty year old Christian Texan. I live on my grandmother’s 55-acre farm and am a big sister to four siblings.

I don’t always fit in with others my age and tend to get along more with adults and guys. I also have a soft spot for animals and am willing to get dirty to help them out.

I started my current blog 2010.  Because of blogging, I recently changed my major from education to web design. If you visit my site, you’ll see I change the “look” frequently because I like to try new things.

Another hobby of mine is photography. I take pictures of things around the farm – mostly of trees, as they inspire me. You can check out some of my pictures by going here. I enjoy playing with and creating patterns called tessellations because I get a different outcome every time! I love it when I find a tessellation in nature on a tree, in the grass or even on an animal. I often use them on my website, too.
