We wanted a page where we could put our favorite photos, and showcase some of Audrey’s work. Many of these photos were taken by Audrey Lynne Brooke, a local Floyd photographer, and my wonderful partner. She would appreciate attribution if you decide to use any of these images. Please use this: Copyright Audrey Lynne Brooke – www.livingasimplelife.com. We are working on her photography site, which will be up soon.
Homestead Photos and Pictures
Everett took this picture with a cheap little camera as the sun rose over the barn last year. Clicking the image links to a larger version, which you are free to use however you like.
This is our walk back from the mailbox, past the barn, down the hill, across the creek and back to the house.
I’m so thankful for Audrey, who takes such wonderful pictures that we’ll all be reminiscing over some day with the grandchildren.
Audrey’s Lunch Tree
View of the house, pond and barn from the goat hill at my last place. I still miss this property sometimes.
Fond memories of this cabin.

Our skivvies and unmentionables out there for all the deer to see. Oh my!

We had a week of non-stop rain followed by a week of non-stop ice, snow and sun. It has been a beautiful winter here in southwest Virginia. I can’t think of any place I’d rather be.
The first year a garden is cut out of the forest. Everyone pitches in.
Audrey picking apples, from which she made pie, apple sauce. I made some apple butter with what was left.
Waylon helps Audrey inspect the first plant.
Sunrise around here is always a nice thing to witness. The best thing about this picture though is a full tank of propane for off-grid cooking and water heating!
A view of the farms near our homestead in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This one is my desktop wallpaper. I don’t know who took it and can’t say what the copyrights are on it. I just wanted to share because it’s a great image.
