It’s possible these last posts and images will make you want to quit your job, move to the country and spend every day enjoying the world through a child’s eyes. At least, that’s what happens to me every year after I’ve spent time here on the farm.
This is of Ross and Rayna coming out of the cave together at Crystal Lake. I could over-analyize how symbolic this image is to me in terms of Ross and Rayna facing the outside-world together. I could go on, but I will spare you and just say I love this picture of them together.
There are four things that are abundant here: 1. horses 2. chickens 3 & 4: cows & flies (see below)
Another trip to my favorite location. Rayna loves her Granddaddy! Rayna in her Nana’s hat at the pool…
Here’s is a secret about how my strange brain works:
No matter WHERE I am or WHAT I’m doing, I see everything in terms of photography.
Confused? Here are a few examples just from today:
- I see a watermelon on the counter and instantly say to Michelle, “We need to take a picture of Kenslee eating a slice on the front porch with just a diaper on.”
- We’re riding the 4-wheeler and pass a gorgeous open field with an over-aboundance of wildflowers. It’s midnight and I’m STILL kicking myself that I didn’t take Rayna there for a few quick pictures.
Okay, you get my point. Well, last month when I was here photographing a wedding, I barely caught a glance of these old mailboxes on an old dirt road. I didn’t have my camera with me, so this trip, Matthew and I drove all around until I found those old mailboxes I fell in love with.
Which brings me to my next image. It’s old, which I love. It’s country, which I love. It paints a picture of simple times.
I have one more post, so check back soon!
