Out on the farm!

Recommended Posts

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

What a great afternoon. So many cool things in those old barns. I like the fence shot and the harness.

    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
