I've just added something to my wardrobe. Something I've been searching for, not quite sure which one was right for me. Can you spot it? It's a watch! Someone commented to me years ago that wearing a watch was becoming obsolete. If one needs to know the time they simply consult their cellphone. So true! However, my disdain for cellphones is a constant joke to my friends. I have an little flip phone with some prepaid minutes in my purse that I save for emergencies. I check it about twice a week to see if anyone has called it (they never do, I don't even know the phone number for it). If someone texts me, I usually return the favor about three days later. I just don't know how people function with them constantly in their hands!

OK, enough of sounding like an old fogey. The point is, I don't ever know what time it is... so I bought a watch. It took me forever to find an affordable option that I really liked. There are some seriously tacky watches out there folks. Since I couldn't lay down enough cash for my dream watch I settled for a Swiss Army Garrison. It's simple, classic and goes with everything.

I just love the first picture in this post. It somehow so simple, yet so beautiful. I'm truly in awe of all the photographing on your blog. It's always a pleasure to browse through.

We apparently have identical cell phone use! I've just got a cheap little flip phone with a $15 a month plan for emergencies, especially since I travel long distances alone a lot. I don't understand what people have to do/say/communicate that's so important ALL DAY haha... And so, I am a constant watch-wearer. I get a watch-tan in the summertime, which I actually use to grade my tan level hah.

I like that you included a photo of a harvester.

So funny you should say that because I wear watches quite often, but all of them have dead batteries so they never actually "tell the time". LOL. I love your photos. They are beautiful as always!

I had the same prepaid situation for the last 4 years (the whole time I was in college) and I also got used to wearing watches. Finally caved on a phone because it was needed for my job.

I find pretty & simple watches in thrift stores. They generally just need their battery replaced.

I'm terrible about watches, so I either wear a watch pendent or constantly check my phone for the time.

These are stunning photographs, I am always jealous of the locations you have to had for your photoshoots!

This post makes me want to plant some corn, chuck my cell phone, and get a watch. At least watches last more than 2 days without having to be charged.
