Shadow Shot Sunday #159 ~ From The Eagle Valley Amish Auction



These are a few of the log structures that were on the auction block a few weeks ago.  Meadowlark Log Homes is  the Amish owned company that makes them.  They made our cabin, so I am partial to their type of building.  Their customer service is tops!

For more Shadow Shots or to join in this fun meme, go visit our hostess in Australia, Tracy, at Hey Harriet.  Hope you all are having a good weekend.  Blessings to all who pass this way.

love, Cassie

Sorry Cassie, family stuff down south has kept me away from the blogs, I have a great deal to catch up with. I love the cabins, particularly love the scent of wood you get inside them. The shadow shot is very intriguing too. Especially the very first one.

Take care, and I hope your rhubarb is not still mutating LOL

Sturdy log structures always fascinate me!

(The beach is right outside my door here in Hawaii, but the cemetery was an adventurous drive!)


BE MY COMPANION

Come here, my shadow,
Do not delay;
Be my companion,
Show me the way;
Teach me your secrets,
Chant as we go
Of light and darkness—
Make my heart glow!

Shadows here and here

Wonderful structures, and they do make strong, graphic shadows.

Have a great weekend!

Very pretty!

Can I invite you to join the meme I just launched? It is called Color Connection, you can just post anything with color of your choice. Hope you can join the fun. Thank you!

Wonderful - I immediately thought of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (one of my all time favoutite films!!)

These rough hewn cabins are so old school - which is why they are so lovely! Instead of lumber cut by a computer controlled saw, these logs were stripped of bark by hand, the honest old way with axes and chisels. The Amish way, built by hand alone. Stunning, the frames built to last in the cold Idaho winters. Nice, and refreshingly, not modern!

Love the shadows but even more the log homes. How absolutely wonderful.

Paula Scott said...

They sure made for some very interesting and dramatic shadow shots!

EG Wow said...

Wonderful crisp and dark shadows!

Daisy said...

Cool shadow shots, Cassie! The first one, if turned upside down, reminds me a little of three crosses on the hill!

Hey Harriet said...

I love the look of those log structures and wish I had a cute little log cabin! It's beautiful work! I hope you're enjoying the weekend so far Cassie :)

blogitse said...

It's great this kind of work is still done. Modern buildings are not going to be as strong and well built as 'hand made', traditional way built...
Have a good week ahead!

Spiderdama said...

Great shadow shots! The first one must be my favorite.
Hope you have a nice time over there.
Thanks for your nice comment.
Hugs from Tania in Norway:-)

What a perfect pattern the shadow makes in that top photo!! They're all good, but I really like that top one.

Joan said...

Log homes are so pretty!
Great shadows.

perfect shadow silouhettes.

Angie said...

Super shadow shots! Love the structures. Thanks for your visit.

Cassie girl I love your shots ! especially wood structures as opposed to metal .. wood seems to be alive some how. I am sure your combo with water and seed (albeit they are picky eaters .. LOL) will be a great success .. just be patient .. and if not this year .. next year .. birds are finicky creatures ! LOL

I love this post....I've always been so very interested [and a lot of times jealous] of the Amish lifestyle! Wonderful photos.

Thanks for your comments on my Sunday post...

Winter Past is my link to Macro Monday. Do stop by, again, when you get a chance. I'd love your company. Have a great week.

Hey Cassie,

Am just getting back after being out for nearly 2 weeks.

Will formally get caught up later, just wanted to pop over and let you know that I was wondering about the pkg.

Didn't want you to think I was ungrateful or anything and never emailed you that I appreciated it....

Thanks,
Ramona

The Japanese Redneck said...

Very neat. I like log cabins!

Mildred said...
