Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography






Yesterday, July 9th I took a tour of three of Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses (FALLINGWATER, KENTUCK KNOB, and DUNCAN HOUSE) all of which are located on Bear Run Nature Reserve in Laurel Highlands, Pa. when I came across the above wonderful bird houses.

The bird houses were perched on their pillars in a field outside the Kentuck Knob Gift Shop on the way to the Kentuck house, and it came as a complete surprise to me.  So, of course, I had to depart from the tour group and make a quick dash to capture this remarkable find, thus the photos are a little off.

Not a bird could be found near any of the bird houses.  And no wonder with me running around like a chicken with her head cut off trying, in haste, to photograph my find.  I’m glad to say I did not hold up the tour because I was able to catch up with the group before we reached the house and the lecture on the home had begun.  Don’t ask what I heard of the lecture, because I was too busy trying to catch my breath.  Oh well, all for the sake of photography.
