365 Days of Photos – Day 295

Last March I posted several pictures of my Texas Red Bud Tree. The tree was full of beautiful pink blooms.

The rest of the summer the tree stood proudly and showed off its lovely green leaves.

I find it interesting that I did not find the tree intriguing enough to take pictures when it was full of leaves.

Trees are such a representation of life….when things are drastically different (beginning of life – end of life) we pay attention. But when things are OK, not crazy, not new, not dying we tend to not pay much attention.

365 Days of Photos – Day 291

This is the church I grew up in. Its a small country church in a town that doesn’t have a 4 way stop.

Sadly the attendance has dropped drastically over the past 20 years and slowly this church will shutter, like so many other small churches around our country.

While in Dayton this past weekend, me and my friend Corey took a few minutes to walk around the old building.

Its been many years since I’ve visited this place. I’m glad we took time to stop….many happy memories.
