Quick Pic - Back to School

By Joann M. Ringelstetter

This morning, I was greeted on Facebook with photos of my great niece and nephews who were proudly posing in front of the camera on their first day of the school year. It reminded me of all the great old-fashioned one-room schoolhouses we have in our photo collection that have yet to be processed.

It also reminded me that autumn is just around the corner and, although we are currently suffering through some intense heat and humidity, I am getting excited for the cool fall weather. I am also eager to hit the backroads with my camera to capture some of the beautiful Wisconsin fall color. And because Ruth and I both love the variety of autumn sumac that colors our images, I decided to share a couple of photos of an old school surrounded by orange sumac.

To all the children returning to school, have a great school year. And to all the drivers out there, slow down where children are present.

Happy Shunpiking!


  1. I love how you timed this with the first day of school. It's always fun at our house to change over to a new month, because then we get to see the next month on your photo calendar. My son counted down 3-2-1! and then dramatically turned the page from August to September. It's a fun event at our house. Cheers!

  2. Beautiful fall pics of the old school house!
