{October} fields

No spring or summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face. ~ John Donne I seem to have a 'thing' about taking Grace's picture in open fields...we've gone out in Spring, Summer and now here's the Fall edition of miss Grace in a field. As I recall in Spring we were in the middle of a wildflower field with her in a wagon. Summer she sat on an old red wooden chair...she was in a field of Queen Anne's Lace and wasn't real happy about the bees and bugs getting a bit too friendly.

I do wonder what's the fascination with open fields with me. Perhaps because they are plentiful in southern Wisconsin and to me are actually quite beautiful. This golden and green beauty is not even a mile away from my house and I suppose it inspired me because of the colors that said 'Autumn'. It's a field of soybeans by the way...


Grace takes this field thing with her momma in stride I have to say. I have been wondering what will we do in Winter...perhaps a snow field? I'm up for it...will have to see if Grace is by then!

These shots are adorable Gail! You have to frame a few of these. Grace is just so adorable! I bet she will be willing to do a snowfield! :)

Michelle said...

Beautiful, beautiful!!! I love your field shots. Keep 'em coming, I say! Snow fields sounds like a plan! A light dusting, maybe, not three-feet. :)

Stunning!!! I love everything about these images and I think that it is very cool that you have visited the fields each season. I think it would be cool to do a wall in your home with a photo of her from each season:)

I always say this, but her beauty is mesmorizing and you have a way of capturing it perfectly in every setting. keep up the fantastic work........very inspiring!!

Leave it you, Gail, and your beautiful Grace to make a field of soybeans so magical! ;)
(As an Indiana-born girl, there is something quite comforting for me about "the fields"- and being able to see for miles)
