I did a post earlier this year about the milk house at the farm owned by my friends Tom and Gaela. These pictures are from a different corner of the same building.


I’ll bet I have 20 shots of this same scene taken on two different visits. In my mind, there was a Georgia O’Keeffe thing going on if only I could capture it.


I don’t think I scored on the O’Keeffe homage and that’s okay. Once I started playing with the images, I forgot about Georgia and got caught up in the subtle play of light and shadow on the surfaces.


For once, I can’t pick a favorite.

    I can see why you can’t pick a favorite .. they all offer something interesting and lovely. Just when I think I like a certain one, my eye is caught by another… but, i think the …well, but then there’s … and, hmmm… can’t decide either. 🙂

  2. Karen Hupp Taylor says:

    You feel like you are actually there seeing this stuff first hand. Great use of the light that flashes into shadows.

  3. Jeanne says:

    Its more of an Andrew Wyeth thing to me.

  4. In addition to the above I’ll just add that Zen comes to mind. Also: you’ve captured something essential to architecture.

    I like them all ! Excellent surface textures ! ( Ole Art Prof-Ret )

    ….perhaps you can not chose a favorite because they are all a gift of light and you get to have them all….think that may be why I never bring myself to used color in Dale…the light provided all the mood, tone, drama of the defined space and it changed from day to day. You find an intricately defined space and capture an enlightened moment that invites…then you share…then you do it again and again….these are very nice

    • You always leave me with so much to think about. I read your comments and think”Yes” “Uh-huh” and “Ahhhh!” Thanks for your insight. I’m glad they spoke to you. (You say that about your home in Dale and I immediately think of that readers area that always begged for someone to sit and rest.)
      Ultimately, I chose #1 for a juried show entry and #2 for a magazine submission, though I gave them both the same name.
