A different perspective

I'm trying out a different look for my blog just for shits and giggles, as my mother used to say. I took this picture when I went to Jim Thorpe, PA a couple of weeks ago because I found the architecture interesting. I know some of you won't like this new look, but I was tiring of the old. Let me know what you think, if you like. I can take it!

I think I like it better this way Kate. Clean and crisp.

Looking at the photo makes my neck hurt though. :)

Hi there Kate. Yes, this is a different perspective fcoming from you. But I like it! It's fun to mix it up and try something new. My faves are still of George. What a sweet face. Happy birthday, Georgie Boy!!!

Your new header photo is beautiful. I'll find my away around the new layout soon enough, so that's fine with me. The most important thing to consider is whether *you* like it, and if you do.. so do I!

The photo you took at Jim Thorpe is eye-catching; the architecture is beautiful. Your perspective makes it even more lovely.

I loved all your gorgeous pictures all over the old set up, but I understand the need for change sometimes. I love the "Jim Thorpe" pic. Very cool!

A woman is entitled to change her mind. That's all I'm sayin'. I support any woman changing her mind too. Love the new header photos. The Jim Thorpe one is catchy, but makes my neck hurt *g

What another killer photo Katie Did 1234 (or something like that!) My Dear what an eye you have and the "I" don't lie. Listening to Norah Jones and hangin with Acorn! A is thinking of you and yours and praying for the silver lining!

It's my first time here so I don't really know the old look but I can tell you I like this one. It has a home-like feeling and the colours are easy on the eye. Hope this helps :)

HI ... It's an awsome photo, but since your asking... :) I really love the photos of your surroundings, especially the horses and George and all the florals, they are beautiful! Reminds me of where I grew up. But, you do what feels good :)

Your photography is always beautiful regardless of how it's framed.

Thanks, everyone. It was just a photo I threw in because I was fooling around with the blog look and it lent itself well to what I was posting about!

Bobby, I couldn't figure out what you meant by Katie Did 1234 until Adrienne explained it to me. Katydid56 is my e-mail address. It's not the amount of (men) I "did" as Adrienne first thought. (Good God). A katydid is a bug. I like some bugs. I would never do 56 men. I love my husband and am not a french whore.
Dear Readers: Please excuse my un-ladylike language. If you want to know about the french whore thing, just enter it as a search in the top bar of this blog. It's an inside joke.

I just saw your blog for the first time today, and I think it's great! I love your photography, the way you think of songs, and the pleasure of sharing nature with you. We, too, live in the country here in Texas, but alas, we're in drought mode with 100 degree days already and everything is burning up. Your site soothes me!

The Jim Thorpe pic is cool, but makes me dizzy, which is usually what happens when I look up!

Have a blessed day...

I love the perspective of this photo. You always make things look so interesting. "shits and giggles" ha ha! I hadn't heard that one before and I thought my mother knew them all.
