Week 35 Crop Dusting


This week was a great week for photography. I have started college and am doing an AAS photography program. One morning as I was driving to class I saw this crop duster plane flying around right next to school. I have seen crop dusters working before but never from this close. It was amazing watching the plane swoop down low that it looked like it was riding directly on the ground then when the end of the field arrived it would pull up hard at the absolute last minute barely lifting above the tree line. I decided it was worth being a few minutes late to class so I stopped and made some photographs and I like how these three turned out. Earlier this week I also did some photography down at the Mississippi River just a block away from my apartment and got some nice portraits of Laura and myself. Finally the last photograph is from right outside my door where there is some construction and they had a big pile of signs all with those flashing lights and I thought it was so neet seeing them all together blinking in different patterns.

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 bo
