One side of me would prefer to call this my visual 'journal,' as this section reflects images that I make, new techniques I try, places I explore or events that I record throughout the year . Frequently I will pair a quote with an image which often enhances or adds depth and new meaning to an image. 

Thank you for your visits and comments.  Both are important!

"Manus et Pedibus"

Thank you to juror Tim Booth for including "The Fiddle Player's Hands" and "Don't Let Your Books Gather Dust" in the "Manus et Pedibus" exhibit at Darkroom Gallery.  

"Don't Let Your Books Gather Dust" was awarded an Honorable Mention in the exhibit.

From the juror's statement: "Don’t Let Your Books Gather Dust
This I’d want on my wall. It’s animated and yet still, nicely processed and toned without being over fiddled with, perfectly composed and balanced. This came so close to being my Juror’s Choice because it has so much heart, and only missed it by a fraction as I felt that whilst being a beautiful image, it wasn’t quite on brief enough."

On Assignment

The message read:  The original York family barn on York Road is about to succumb to the developer’s bulldozers.  Do you think you could swing by and photograph it for history’s sake?

I, of course, was more than happy to accept that assignment.  And, as usual, I found some other interesting photographic treasures while ‘on assignment.’

Scales Dairy: The Farm

Several people have expressed interest in seeing images from the Lester Scales Dairy Farm off Clovercroft Road in Nolensville.  This property is now "The Farm" subdivision.  For ease of viewing, I am compiling the images in this blog post.  Photographic fine art prints are available.

Looking back to October 2013, I wrote a post entitled “Before It’s Too Late.” At that time I was just beginning my quest of photographing rural life in and around my current home of Nolensville Tennessee. The area is rapidly changing. Many quaint farms are being developed into modern subdivisions. The quiet, peaceful rural life is succumbing to the hustle and bustle of suburban life.

In July 2015 I referenced this long-term photography project and subsequent work with the Nolensville Historical Society in the post “Helping Others Through Photography, Part Two.”

Fast forward to April 2016. A second long term project is reaching conclusion and a year’s worth of photography and research will culminate with a May 9th presentation at the Nolensville Historical Society. For this upcoming presentation the focus has been on documenting and preserving the history of log structures of Nolensville.

Mr. Pete has been my guide for the last year, and I his camera totin’ side-kick.

He diligently arranged visits to nearly 40 different sites and locations for us to photograph, document, and research. Often we would find the sites at the end of secluded lanes or hidden in the woods.  Many times the log structures were in severe disrepair. We waded through creeks, crossed barbed-wire fences, and carefully watched where we stepped to avoid stepping on critters, falling in cisterns, or falling through rotting floors in aged cabins.

However, we also were invited onto the properties and into homes of many gracious people who had lovingly restored and cared for log cabins and log structures.

We explored the various structures, making observations and inferences from the relics left behind. A sense of amazement and appreciation for the ancestors that originally settled in Nolensville was instantly formed.

I’ll share with you just a small sample of images made during this past year while working on the long structure project.
