The Memorial Day Holiday was another nice break from work-work and yard work (getting close to done; can see a sliver of light at the end of the tunnel now). It was a gorgeous day with lots of big poofys in the sky. The sun was shinning, the temperature mild, wieners hanging out the back windows and it felt great to get out for a backroadin’ shoot. No misadventures this time around (well one minor one*); only harsh light and deep shadows to contend with. We have exchanged the dingy browns of late Winter/early Spring for the lush greens of late Spring / early Summer. There was lots of livestock, rolling hills and a few barns to shoot. We stumbled upon what must be the most character-rich goat ever. I didn’t capture him mid-chew or anything; that was his natural look. He was a handsome fellow
And true to form, Cyndie and I ran across another abandoned farmstead. I explored the outbuildings and barn while she shot up the house. It wasn’t as old and decrepit as I would like to see, but it was still interesting.
*Not once, but twice a wiener got into the snack stash. Tindra ate almost 1/2 lb of the driest beef jerky I have every tasted – no loss there, except she was awful thirsty afterwards and eventually hurled it all up…in the car. While at the farmstead she decided to tear into a bag of animal crackers – lil piggy she is. Both times, Audrey, the angel she is, was just sitting there watching when I returned to the car.
