Week 42 Scattergood Day


This week I was hired by Scattergood Friends School to photograph Scattergood Day(homecoming). I was very excited to do it partly because it would make it worth the long trip down there to visit with old friends. I made a lot of photographs and had a hard time limiting it down to the ones here. The one above is my favorite because I like the dramatic viewpoint with the farm tour walking down the hill backdropped by huge clouds. I also had some fun with the next one down where I used three different photographs to show the path of the disk. 

On my way down to Iowa I stopped at my grandparents and was enlisted to photograph my aunts alpacas. I made a few different compositions but I like this one best because you can see the rolling pasture in the background.

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
