Out on the farm!

8 posts in this topic

I have been meaning to stop at this farm place for some time and finally did it today. The farm was a place that I worked 20 years ago and I wasn't sure the same person lived there. I was surprised to find that she was and she was very willing to let me have the run of the place. It is literally a treasure chest with barns filled with antiques and old slip rail fencing that I helped build along with abandoned horse equipment.

I plan on bringing her some prints and going out to help her with a little farm work. She said I could come back and photograph anything anytime I wanted so I will be doning that for sure.

Anyways, here's just a few of the results fromm the afternoon.

Great stuff, Mike. I love old farmsteads. There is something simply powerful and so purely Americana about them, and B&W makes it all sing in better tune, IMO.

I like the hanging harness and hanging rockers images the best. I especially like the warm temp of the hanging rockers B&W. A sepia or near-sepia look is a powerful way to render photographs like that. That overlapping fence is crying out for more exploration. Texture, pattern, lighting, mmmmm.

Looks to me like you have a fruitful set of future subjects and a great relationship with the landowner to foster. Good job on both! smilesmile
