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!

You Are Invited!

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.

The Zoo: Abstracted

As so often we do, a group of photographer friends planned an outing. The days were getting warmer and school was not out yet so the group decided to head to the zoo.

Sounds like a great location for photo opportunities, right? Who doesn’t enjoy photographing the beautiful animals in their well-kept and lush surroundings.

The added challenge, however, was to only photograph abstract images!

I chose to spend the day exploring movement.  More specifically, I chose to use long exposures, thus allowing the movement of the animals to blur into abstraction.

It truly was a great outing with friends.  I enjoyed the day as well as the photographic rewards of the day.

Mr. Pete's Garden

My friend, Mr. Pete, called yesterday to let me know he had some interesting blooms in his garden.  I always enjoy going out to Mr. Pete's farm; never know what I'm going to find!


 

 

Oh wait!  That's not a flower!  :)
