WW Photo Challenge: Old McDonald’s Farm

O is for Old McDonald’s Farm

Old McDonald’s farm is real! It’s a big, active farm in Sackets Harbor, NY where children can go on hay rides, play with farm animals, and generally get to see a real working dairy farm. We visit there regularly toward the end of summer to get the best fresh corn around. Not far from their farm store is this cluster of structures that present an intriguing industrial look, in sharp contrast with the cows and cornstalks you see on the rest of the farm. One cloudy day I stopped to get this shot of some of the machinery that goes into keeping a farm going.

When you see the name of the farm do you start singing “E – I – E – I – O”? I know I do. Isn’t it interesting how songs we learn as tiny children never really leave us? What’s the oldest song you remember from your childhood?

You can join in on the photo challenge! Pick any image you created you can label with the letter O. You might share your pet owl, your olive collection, or your October calendar. Here’s how to participate.

  • Post an image on your own blog or website.* All types of images are welcome. If you have serious equipment and serious skills, that’s awesome! If you snap pics on your phone (like me), that’s also awesome!
  • Post a comment on this page with a link back to your post. If you post a comment that includes a link to your blog, I will add a link to your post below.
  • Check back over the next week to follow the links. That way you can see what other people did with the theme and join in the fun.

We have another custom book cover this week from Olga Godim, this one focusing on owls. Check it out here!


*Just so we’re all clear, you post your photos on your own site, which means you aren’t giving control to me or to anyone else. We’re all invited to view the images you post (and comment if your site allows for comments), but nobody has the right to use your images in any way without your permission. Got it? Great!
