I’ve driven past this farm multiple times, since it’s not too far from my place. I finally found the right conditions to photograph it.Continue reading
I was looking for something else when I discovered this pleasant surprise: a 1946 International Harvester KB-1 farm truck…or at least some parts thereof, plus some other goodies which may or not be related.Continue reading
This is a grand old house, and I can’t begin to imagine the memories made therein. It’s seen its better days, unfortunately, but thankfully we can still appreciate its beauty. It seems that average houses are so much larger now than before, which makes this home even more impressive.Continue reading
This enormous barn sits atop a hill in picturesque fashion, and I’m delighted to share it with you. This was part of a recent photo jaunt in which I experienced some unique conditions and spectacular timing, and I’m making the most of it.Continue reading
A friend actually posted a photo of this farm, taken from the road, a while back, and I was astonished that I hadn’t seen it before given its proximity to my property. So, the next Saturday morning I had available I bolted over to take a look. I had a new set of tires on my truck and was eager to see if they performed better on snow, ice, or even mud than my last ones (let’s face it, they couldn’t do worse), and I hadn’t been out on a photography jaunt in far too long.Continue reading
Okay, it isn’t on the tracks any more…but this is the other side of the old Union Pacific rail car I featured in my previous post.
I actually got to roam a little bit this weekend, and I had some incredibly fortunate timing when it comes to the fog. I caught the perfect window which allowed me to fly my drone safely and legally, and the fog which remained gave the perfect diffusion to the harsh winter sun, eliminating those pesky late-year shadows.
This was a targeted trip, but it came with several bonuses. One of them is this old Union Pacific rail car! The others…well, they’re waiting to be processed. We’ll see what time allows.
This one’s sitting down, lying down…in any case, it’s coming down. What a grand ol’ barn it must have been in its heyday. In fact, the way it’s sticking together even as it settles is a testimony to how well the craftsmen of the day put them together.
What can I say? It’s been a busy winter. An endless winter. Even an excruciating winter. But I did get out a couple of times with my camera. Then I found myself too busy to post anything. Sigh.Continue reading
I thought I’d start my morning – and my week – with a post taken in the evening. This is the elevator at Arena, ND. I hadn’t been there in a while, despite its proximity to Bismarck-Mandan, but I had a dear friend in town from Florida and we wanted to get out with our cameras. I had a bunch of cool places marked – that house in Robinson I featured earlier, for instance – and this was the last major spot we had planned on the way home. The evening didn’t disappoint: lots of color abounded, and even a really cool set of clouds posed in the background for us!
