I truly think that there is more beauty in imperfection than perfection, for it is the imperfect things that truly make us beautiful. --me

One-Roomed Schoolhouse

One of my favorite parts of the Chippewa Nature Center is the one-roomed schoolhouse. In the few years that I have been visiting the nature center, I have taken several images of the different buildings out there. However, most of them are in black and white and are hand processed. I love all of my images but will admit that I am rather partial to my B&W images. These are from before some of the transformations to the building took place. The bell had a roof over it and there were steps going up to the door of the building. While I understand the reasoning behind the dirt ramp up to the building as far as the handicap accessibility aspect but I don't understand why the roof over the bell was removed. Anyhow, I love the blue skies in this image a promising sign that spring is truly on its way.

Great Photo Christy! I once dated a guy in mt.pleasant, and on weekends I would drag him over to the preserve. I really enjoy the walk around there, and the rivers are breath taking.

Great photo! It reminds me of when I lived in the country as a child. My husband is all city-boy and refuses to live in the country. Oh well, a girl can dream can't she?
