Greetings from Old Home Day!

Early Learning, originally uploaded by Linda Orlomoski.

I spent most of yesterday in my hometown of Canterbury taking pictures for the annual Old Home Day celebration which is put on by the Canterbury Historical Society. It was my third year playing the role of "official" photographer (heck, I even got mistaken for a photographer from the local paper this year - how cool is that?) and I went home with over 450 pictures having put the Nikon through a good work-out.

This picture is one of my favorites from the 308 that I eventually decided I really liked after going through the batch. It was taken in the restored Green School, the only remaining one-room schoolhouse in Canterbury that has been lovingly restored and serves as the centerpiece for Old Home Day. For me this picture just seemed to sum up the spirit of the day.

I'll try to post a handful more of my favorites tomorrow but for today it's off to work for my usual Sunday double followed by a double again tomorrow and another double on Tuesday. Yes, I am crazy but the siren song that overtime warbles is sometimes hard to ignore!

    I love that picture too. Sometimes the most simple pictures end up being the best.

  3. I've already told you so, but at they risk of sounding redundant, I'll again echo what ^they^ said about the header. LOVE.

    Is that white paper her eraser? lol!

    Pace yourself, girl! Overtime is great. Wish I could get paid some myself, because I sure put in the hours!

  4. That's such a sweet picture.

    Loving your new header and Autumn template Linda. :)

  5. Sweet and simple photo. I just love it, but I am also a sucker for the wee ones.

    Try not to overdo and have a relapse. Big hugs, honey...

  6. A beautiful picture and a very autumnal header, Linda.

  7. That's really a great shot.

  8. Great shot and I'll bet the other 450+ are great too.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  9. Your blog looks great and I can see why the photo is one of your favorites. Precious.
    One of the little towns near us has an old one room school too, but sadly it has not been restored and is closed. Someone has been taking care of the grounds and keeping the Kudzu off it so there may be hope.
