Sunday Stills ~Architecture~

Another week of Sunday Stills Photo Challenge with Architecture as the theme. I thought about taking a cruise by an old church and some barns but that never happened. I always seem to be LAST minute preparing for my Sunday post so once again today was the day. We were on the lake ice fishing (John & the kids fishing, me just playing photographer) so the only architecture around were camps. When is the last time you come across a round camp? I was excited to find this unique structure.
An antique boat house. Maine law prevents people from building new boat houses.

Not quite a camp!
Red neck chalet
This was a cool little shack. Somehow I cut the skis out of this picture.
Hunting blind by fall and ice shack come winter.





Running for a flag.

FARM POSTS IN THE MAKING..... I PROMISE;) WE HAVE DUCKS ARRIVING AT THE END OF THE WEEK AND UPDATES TO COME.
LASTLY, I WANT TO THANK MY FELLOW BLOGGERS FOR 4 RECENT BLOG AWARDS I HAVE RECEIVED.....I HOPE TO GET CAUGHT UP ON THAT THIS WEEK.

GreyWolf said...

What amazing pictures. And what better than such a unique structure for an architectural photo. It makes me curious as to the story behind it's building and how it was constructed.
What kind of fish are those?

farm mom said...

Wonderful pics girl, as always. You guys always look like you're having such fun. :)

That looks fun! The last time I was Ice fishing, I was 5 months preggers with my boy. He's 14 so its been awhile.

I've never seen fish like that, what kind are they?

Your pics made me miss ice gishing. I haven't done that in years. I need to get back to my Michigan roots!

Your perch are a different type than what we have here. We have yellow perch.

Are those white perch?

I like that round camp!
You are getting ducks? Are you getting them for their eggs or meat? I have never had duck eggs(fresh) before, only the salted ones.

Country Girl said...

THANKS REGULAR GUY & FS!

DON & YD, I THINK THEY ARE WHITE PERCH. I WILL HAVE TO ASK MM TO BE FOR SURE.

YD, MM IS GETTING THEM FOR EGGS. I SAY WE HAVE ENOUGH EGGS BUT WHATEVER IT IS HIS DEAL. HE TOLERATES MY GOATS SO I WILL HIS DUCKS.
