Vintage Barns & Fleabane...A Strange Combination

I've a strange combination of images to share this week.  In a field close to my house there were some beautiful wildflowers growing.

I found out it was fleabane.  I had it sitting on the kitchen table and of course the light bulb went on one evening.  

"I need to do a photo shoot with my macro lens".   So off I went.  Below is the result.  Some of these flowers are all white and some are pinkish/purple and white.

I used a very shallow depth of field to get a dreamy look.  Some of them may not be in exact focus because it was a bit breezy but it achieved the dreamy look. 

click on the images to make bigger and see better.














Last but not least I'm sharing some barns today that i gave a vintage treatment too in LR.

Have a wonderful week everyone.  If you think of me say a prayer for me I think my Diverticulitis is kicking up.

Lovely pictures, Felilcia--- and just what I needed today.

...fleabane is such a dainty delight. Somehow I would like to get down to your neck of the woods to see your white toppers. Fabulous barn as always Felicia, thanks for sharing.
an unusual job, but necessary one. I had to bury my baby 28 years ago, and the funeral director was very good.

Thanks for visiting.

Quite a show. Thanks
Oh Felicia, don't get sick -- or if you do get well soon.

That is an odd name for a beautiful flower -- I just love the delicate shade of pink and your macros are beautiful.

I have never known the name of these flowers and I love wild flowers. 2 and 7 are my favorites and all are stunning. the dreamy look is just wonderful... I like the buggy playing hide and seek and the one with the horse waiting patiently tied to the fence

Wow! These are amazing, as always!

I love me some fleabane! I may have told you they were some of the subjects for my first ever blog post. The pinkish-purply ones are just stunning too and your macros absolutely heavenly. Great barn shots as well. I hope you feel better...I have never been bothered with this by I know those that have and I understand it's not too much fun. Hugs!
Marvelous Macro photos of this wonderful special flower.

The barns remind me of Amish country. Is that where these are taken?

Stunning macros Felicia, I love the dreamlike quality.
Carola Bartz said…
I like your "strange" combination of images very much. The macros are amazing, I love the dreamy look. When I take macros I often go for this look as well. It has a special quality - I think your word "dreamy" hits it. The barns are beautiful, the vintage look is perfect.
Helma said…
Hi Felicia,
This is really very beautiful.
The wild margrites are beautiful in white and pink.
The old barn also made you beautiful.
Greetings, Helma
I love your photos, they are great!
My favorite is the 3rd picture

Best regards from Traudi
