Week 19 Building


This week I helped at the new victus farm, sustainable fish plant, hauling cement from the truck to build the water troughs. I was also charged with documenting the progress through photographs. While doing this I made this photograph above which I love because of how both Mike and the cement truck are framed perfectly in the door. However I was using my flash as fill light due to the contrasty midday sun and it didn't fire and I wished that Mike wasn't facing directly away from the camera and mostly hiding the water sprayer. So I quickly made another photograph but unfortunately he had moved just slightly which totally ruined the framing. I still like the one above more even with Mike facing so exactly away from camera. 

I also played the most epic game of Settlers of Catan and photographed the ending board to record its spectacularness. For fellow players there were exactly 2 places left to build settlements and they were only accessible by one person, no development cards left, and both longest road and largest army locked into one person without competition. What a game it was, and I even won purely by chance.

Week 27 FGC!

I have so many favorite photographs from this week. I was at FGC(Friends General Conference) so there was loads to photograph and I was in a photography workshop so I was even more photographically active then usual. I worked very hard to slim down the hundreds to just these few very best. The last two you need to know a little bit about the Quaker activities durring FGC. The first of the two is of wink which is a wrestling and kissing game. I wont go into the full description here but check out this article that talkes about it, http://quaker.wikia.com/wiki/Wink_(game). I will say however that it can be extremely photographic but is a good challenge to photograph successfully. The very last photograph is of one of the AYFers(Adult Young Friends) participating in the ritual celebration feast at the end of the week. It is done in worshipful silence and you can NOT feed yourself but have to be fed by others, and you get to feed others :) Loads of fun and a great way to wrap up a bondin…

Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers.
