More old farm houses

4 posts in this topic

I guess I am attracted to these old houses since I live in a 100+ year old house in a rural area, and I love the history. I drove down to Sioux Falls today from Cottonwood, and was determined to finally take a picture of this house before it fell down.

This house was a happy find while giving my hubby rides so he could move equipment this afternoon. On the back roads I was driving down, my van was almost attacked by a goose protecting her goslings - all of whom were running down the center of the gravel road! It was pretty funny. No geese or minivans were hurt during this excursion.

Handheld and cropped.

Now that second image in particular is a total winner in my book. Great comp, with the horizontal lines of brown grass, green grass, green trees and blue sky setting off the blockiness and diagonal roof lines of the old house.

Did you get in close for any detail work? I've had a couple commissions shooting old farms and other buildings, and the emotion that can be drawn from detail shots is sometimes surprising.

Excellent work here!

Thanks!

The only way to get up there was a really soggy looking field road. I didn't want to chance getting the minivan stuck - which had almost happended earlier. That whole area is pretty wet right now.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
