Picture If You Will

Images can help tell a story. Pictures can add meaning and impart a deeper understanding. What we see with our eyes and read with our eyes join together and, in my opinion, turn an otherwise good read into a great read. Imagery stirs emotions, pricks our memory and takes us back to places we’ve been or transports us to places we will never see for ourselves. Words are busy, pictures are quiet. Together, they’re a great team.

The old cliche` is so true … “A picture is worth a thousand words.” With that in mind, I decided to take a little stroll through my photos (hundreds) to see if they had anything to say. It was fun and I was surprised at the thoughts that came to mind when I looked at many of them. I’ll share a few with you and they alone are the main dish in this blog offering. If any of them strike a note with you, please feel free to save the image.

Thank you muchly for visiting this little corner of MaryJanesFarm (on the ranch)and my little corner of the world in Wyoming. ~ Shery

    I am brand new to "Mary Janes Farm Girls" but must say what I have seen I have enjoyed. I live in northern BC Canada and enjoy living in ranch land country like you. I am not allowed to ride anymore because of a car accident and a broken neck etc. I did so enjoy your photos and sayings. I do enjoy taking pictures of animals, and God’s great out doors. My newest pleasure are our two grandchildren four and almost six. Please keep up the great blog.
