Wordless Wednesday Zee viewz through the lenz #a2zchallenge

Zing-zang there goez the whole gang! Well…I hope the A-Z Challenge gang doezn’t go completely. What a privilege it is to join a group of zealous bloggerz for the entire month of April! My approach to this was to blog about thingz I am learning A-Z. However, I am not sure how well I followed through with my general theme. I did list my blog class under photography, and for the large part, I did manage to share a number of my imagez with you.

That being said, it’s Wordless Wednesday by my clock and I invite you on a cyber trip to zee viewz through the lenz.

Millions of visitors every year file off I-40 at exit 407 onto Winfield Dunn Parkway, bound for the Smoky Mountains. They must first go through the town of Kodak to reach their destination.

Headed south toward the GSMP, tourists see the home of Swaggerty Sausage. Yes, that’s where the sausage is made. Perhaps, like I did for years, you saw but paid little attention to this old building.

There are no markers at this site. In fact, I believe it sits on someone’s private property. Google provided some details. One source documented this as a well-kept schoolhouse. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to own this? It would make an adorable guest cottage.

Lying east of Pigeon Forge in the valley is the mountain community Townsend. We sometimes like slipping to Cades Cove this route. At the beginning of April, we stopped to look at a gorgeous log cabin. It was a business, but it’s now for sale as a commercial or residential property.

I did not snap pictures of the building. My attention was elsewhere like on the…


vivid yellow forsythia


a stone building, more forsythia, a field of tiny flowers, and tender green foliage on the trees

I want to go back for another chance to photograph this spot before it’s occupied and maybe do a little daydreaming of the possibility of this place being mine. Other than in your mind, where is your dream house located?

Sending a round of applauds and cheers to this week’s featured photographer…

    I would definitely go back and have some more shots at the place and all the while do a little dreaming.
    That forsythia shot is really beautiful

    They say that Spring isn’t really here until the Forsythia blooms … so happy Spring to you. Beautiful pictures and certainly a place to daydream about. I am in my dream house … it took me 60 years and retirement to get here, but we have been on the lake for 13 years and wouldn’t have it any other way. Love you posts … love how long your “Wordless” Wednesday ends up being. You make me smile …

    Ever since I got my new camera, I’ve been really fascinated with old houses, abandoned spaces and I love that shot with the trees and the shed. Those things seem to have so much character. I can’t wait to get a whole day off from home where I can just roam my area and find interesting places to shoot.


Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a purrfect day!
