Day 800 The Bridge between Turlock and Patterson on West Main.

There is no room on the bridge to stop and photograph, so I risked my life to get this shot. Cars speeding past, zoom zoom, nearly running me down, was not a deterrent.

Day 799 That Old Barn with Sad Cows

This barn with it's young cows wading knee deep in manure always makes me sad. Sad to see these animals living in such filth. Sometimes when you drive by there is a dead cow all bloated up in their front yard. Sometimes they are butchering a cow in their front yard. Yes, I know, I've heard it all before we eat animals. So actually it's been YEARS since I've eaten any part of a cow, or a pig for that matter. If I had more time and money I'd eat no animals at all.

Day 798 Sunrise on a Foggy Morning

I hate waking up in the morning. I am old, wrinkly faced, body aching, knees cracking with pain, hating to wake up in the morning old, but, I love my drive to work as it gives me a chance to photograph the sunrise.

Day 797 post 2 Lovely Morning Sky

Three various pictures of today's morning sky as I drove to work.

Day 797 Dairy Cows

I saw the reflection of cows as I drove by, so naturally I turned around, got out of my JEEP, and snapped a few.

Day 796 Working for a Living

I knew it would be too gray and foggy to get a picture this morning, but I brought my camera along anyway. I was excited to see the machinery, bottom, as I drove by. I had to make a U-turn and drive up on the canal to take a shot. I did and was quite pleased with myself. As I drove on and made my left turn I saw again more machinery with lights on so I snapped a few pictures. I had to stop driving and pull onto the side of the road. I shot through a barb wire fence, which you can see if you look.
I was thinking how early these workers must have to get up to be working in the early hours before daylight, then I remembered, I too was out early driving to start my day at work.
P.S. I love the bottom picture.

Day 795 Charbay

On Facebook there are sometimes photo challenges. I have partaken in three of them. The last being to take a black and white image once a day for 7 days of your life with NO people or explanations. Today was Day 7 for me and I photographed Charbay. I photographed her with my I Phone 6, then converted each image to my favorite black and white option. That is why the tones are a bit different on them.

Day 794 Joy's clinic win with Todd Minikus

On Saturday November 4, Todd Minikus gave lessons to Joy and 9 of her friends at Hannink Equine Center. Joy had won a contest and this was her prize. I didn't post that day, as I posted on face book, but sitting thinking about it, I thought why not post today. Wednesday so actually four days late. Joy is riding her lovely mare Lottie, middle. Todd is top, and bottom pic is one of Joy's friends.

Day 793 Sunrise on Jennings Road

Day 793 post 2 Foggy morning on Carpenter Road

These were taken from the same location as the first post for today. I had to actually get out of my Jeep and walk a bit to photograph at this location. I think it was worth it.

Day 793 Foggy morning on Carpenter Road

I'm posting several pictures from my morning, but I enjoy this best so it gets it's own post.

Day 792 post 2 Charbay Tall and Proud

I suppose I could have placed this with the previous picture and had one post, but what fun would that be?

Day 792 Charbay fooling around in her stall

I love this picture of my girl for so many reasons I don't feel like explaining right now.
