Skywatch Friday

SWF: Almost Heaven WV

Good morning, my lovelies! Earlier in the week, I danced to Hometown, USA songs, which inspired me to share these old photos.

Before my big girl camera, I used my Canon SD880 ELPH point n’ shoot camera. This is the view from my in-law’s porch. Just behind the garage and to the right of the barn is where my in-laws kept a garden. You’ll even see they have a small vineyard, not for wine making, but for eating. Oh, boy are those awesome grapes, too!!


I love barns! My DH’s grandfather (his dad’s dad) built this barn more than a 100-years ago. The land this barn is on was given or sold to my father-in-law. Through the years, my FIL maintained this structure so it didn’t fall to ruins. In recent years, he hired someone to replace the roof on all their buildings. I love the green tin roof, don’t you? Image captured with my Canon SD880 ELPH camera.

 ~All images captured with my big girl camera ~ Nikon D7000 & preferred lens Nikkor 18-105mm zoom, unless otherwise noted.~

Before you go, you may want to link your photographic wonder to this week’s WW link up party, here. Thank you for making me apart of your day.  Please leave your comments footprints so that I know you came and I will hop over to your place soon. Have a fototastic day!

Linking up with photographers across the globe in Skywatch Friday.



I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
