This is a photo of my mom and I in front of the barn door taken some 40 years after my Grandparents left the farm to move to town.
When I walked into the barn all the memories of that barn and my childhood memories of it came to me and transported me back to when I was about 5 years old and the smell was exactly the same as I remembered....way back then. I have been in lots of barns over the years but this one smelled different and the same as it did the last time I smelled it in 1962.....
It brought tears to my eyes and a overwhelming feeling of the loss of my grandparents and my cousins as we were as kids playing together gathering up eggs and running with the turkeys my Grandma used to raise. Thinking of my cousin Kathy going to get eggs from under a hen that had other ideas, chasing her, pecking her legs, and me laughing mercilessly! We were all together then and happy as little larks, now my grandparents are gone and my cousins are scattered to the wind all over the country.... Time changes,
people pass on, but the memories are always there.

2011 Bartlesville Photo Walk, a group on Flickr.
October 1, 2011 was the day for the Scott Kelby Worldwide photo walk. We chose Pawhuska, Oklahoma to be our shoot location.
We met there and took photos for 2.5 hours then we ate!
What a beautiful day we had here in Oklahoma!
