Bliss in Blissfield comes from finding keepable photos on a day forecast to be partly sunny but turning out to be the sun’s day off. (To be fair, the weather folks weren’t specific about what part of the planet would be mostly sunny). Somewhat frustrated by the poor lighting conditions, we went to Blissfield for lunch at the Hathaway House Stables.
Our dining area provided the lantern shot. The unusual six-faced barn roof is from a barn behind the restaurant. The barn window comes from the same barn (note how the barn wood frames the left of the window). The smiling Officer Friendly (or Kelley) consented to a picture in her cruiser surrounded by her technology. The picture is a double portrait as you can see yours truly in the near window.
So even on a cloud mega mania day you can still take pictures and find bliss.

This sofa in a barn loft window caught my fancy when Pat and I stopped to capture some images from this old barn. Is the sofa a place for resting or watching the world go by from a private hideaway? Or is it just resting until it can be taken away? I like to think of this sofa as a window to the world; a place to get away, reflect, and quietly watch the world. What are your thoughts?
This image was taken with an ISO of 800 for the early morning light and at f20 with the lens at 180 mm for 1/250th of a second.
