Visions of The Escape! (Photo Friday)

 “ To the vast majority of mankind
nothing is more agreeable than
to escape the need for mental exertion.
… To most people nothing is more troublesome
than the effort of thinking.”
                             James Bryce

I understand this need to escape

I also know many of you never get the chance

Your job, or even your mind, is keeping you chained

Be it in an office, in your home, on the road, or a tractor seat

I have 200 acres and still need to escape to somewhere different

No one is immune to this need

Since I was lucky enough to have a place to go

I thought I would share some views of my escape

Hopefully you will get away soon

But until you can I hope these will help.

I know they helped me. Enjoy.



  1. Great photos once again and a great escape. You have such an exceptional eye.

  2. I do need an escape. I've been feeling it build for a few months now. I'm doing my best to be satisfied with a 'mini-escape' but I think in the end it's just a bad patch job. I love these photos, I love the water. Thanks so much for bringing me along. : )

    Happy Friday B!


  3. love that reflection shot!

    what an odd little duck too!

    hope you are refreshed.

  4. Derrick Thank you. B

    Rural Revival it was only a couple of days and I am sure I will need to escape again as you know with farming there are very few long holidays. Good luck on getting away. I am sure you will eventually. Thank you. B

    Texwisgirl Thank you the reflection shots have always been my favourites. I wish I knew what kind of duck he was.Yes ready to take on the world again coyotes or not. B

  5. Nice to "meet" you, Buttons! First, than you for coming by the Hollow. Second, your photos and thoughts match...beautiful!...:)JP

  6. I think that duck is the female old squaw duck.

  7. Absolutely Peaceful and Serene.

  8. Sue K Thank you coming from you that means more than you know. B

    Home In The Hallow nice meeting you also. Thank you.B

    NDF that is what I thought when I looked it up but I knew someone would know. Thank you. B

    Becky Thank you that is what I was going for. B

  9. You have a terrific eye. These are beautiful photos.

  10. The Great Escape. I don't usually feel the need, but it would be nice to know I could if I wanted.

    Glad you were able to have a few hours or days of R/R. :)

  11. Thanks, Button, for taking us along. The lone feather was my favorite, with the glassy water coming in a close second.

  12. ann@Apples and Twinkies Thank you.B

    Nancy You are lucky I have always needed to run for some reason. B

    Leenie The feather is my favourite my sister was horrified when I laid flat on the wharf hanging over the edge trying to capture it. I love it.The glassy water is always a fun one to do. Thank you B

  13. For me it is the idea of "forced thinking" such as when I go to work, I must think about work. Not the creative things I want to fill my mind with!!!

  14. Very serene Buttons...

  15. nice pictures! I love the one with the feather!

    And Thank you for your sweet comment on my post!
