Renovations are underway out at our family's homeplace that we're calling "Turner Farms." The main house was built in 1851 by Rev. Whitsett from the Concord Baptist Church, and sold to my great-grandparents in the 1940's. My Great-Grandfather raised cattle, so the barn on the property was his. Over the past few years, the homeplace and all of its little out-buildings, the barn and the field in between has become a popular place for outdoor photos. Photo sessions will probably not be able to take place out there until late Summer 2006, when the grass has grown back in and the property is not a construction zone anymore. We wouldn't want anyone to get hurt! I stopped by on Friday to take a few photos of the progress. It was a gorgeous day, as you can tell by the blue skies. Those are almost California-esque blue skies!
