I have loved silos since I was little while playing with a wee-ones farm set, complete with barn and silo. In Boulder County, Colorado, where I live, there are a number of homes and small farms with still-standing silos, even if they are no longer used to store grain or silage. This past Sunday was a beautiful fall day, so I got up early, filled a thermos with coffee, grabbed my camera bag, and took off for a few hours of driving around and taking photos. Photography, thanks to the purchase of a digital camera five years ago, is still a fairly new hobby to me. It’s fun to take pictures, to try for artsy camera angles, and to just plain “mess around” with the camera. This past year, I bought a new zoom lens and I’m still experimenting. I love that digital photography lowers the ante, and that I don’t have to commit to an image on film. I can experiment with the odds of multiple shots, and hope that at least one picture will turn out better than expected.
