"Rural Simplicity"...

For some, these are the basic elements you'll find in most rural areas: a barn, fence, tree, pond and grasses. I started with my original photograph and wanted to do something more creative with the results, so I converted it into a pencil drawing digitally. The simplicity and contrast suggest snow on the ground on a bright, cloudy day.
Hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

"Barn Finds"...

Last year while visiting my parents, we drove the backroads to this local restaurant. En route, I saw a barn that had a few older cars in it. I mentioned to them, let's figure-out who owns this and see if I can photograph what's in there! This past weekend, we did just that. Interesting barn with several classics from the 70's and 80's: Porsche 924, Alfa Romeo, Datsun 280ZX, Jaguar XJ12, and an old Ford tractor. Here's a teaser of the Alfa.

I'll post more photos as I get time to edit them.
Location: Barn, private land, 'somewhere' in remote, southwest Arkansas. :)

"Warmth of the Sunset"...

This is from a commissioned portrait session from 2007.
I simply love the mood of the photograph. To be at peace with your surroundings and nature is also to respect the same.

Where the fence meets the road...

It doesn't seem like I photographed this scene over 10 years ago. Comments welcome.
