Week 37 Leading Onward


This week I did a lot of photography. I had a few class assignments one of which was to photograph a path leading somewhere in the photograph. I thought on this assignment a bunch trying to think how I wanted to put it together. I decided I wanted to have a long straight path or road leading off into the distance and nothingness. The next challenge was finding a place that would be able to depict that feeling of nothingness. Fortunately I happened to find this section of large four lane road with no cars on it. Supposedly it was built by a developer but then the development was never completed so it just dead-ends. It was perfect for what I wanted so I set up my tripod and photographed it. I tried a few different variations but ended up liking this symmetrical panorama most. I like how all the lines lead into the center distance. 

I also got to play around with a few lenses I borrowed from my college one of which was a macro which was so much nicer to use than the extension tubes I have and let me photograph a bee up real close. So close it was practically touching the front of the lens.

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.
