The Old Farm in B&W

The front porch of the old farmhouse in Lodi, OH. I great place to relax on a hot summer’s day!

In my last post a few days ago, I wrote about a day of rest and restoration on a friend’s old family 200+ year old homestead in Lodi, OH.  This is the front porch that provided some shade and a place for pleasant conversation on a hot summer’s afternoon.  We don’t see too many places like this anymore.  Too bad, we would be far better off if we did I believe.

Turkey feathers in a bottle.

Shooting from inside the farmhouse, I came upon this bottle containing turkey feathers sitting in a window frame.  The glass is old and pitted, the window frame paint crazed and showing it’s age, but all giving a sense of quiet and calm.

I felt that black and white conveyed the feeling of these scenes without the distraction of color in these images.  I love black and white photos and almost always consider the conversion.  It doesn’t always work, but in this case I like it and hope you do too!

About Kolman Rosenberg

My interest in photography began as a college newspaper and yearbook photographer during the stormy 1960s and 1970s. I was influenced by many of the great photojournalists and documentary photographers such as W. Eugene Smith, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Margaret Bourke-White and other black and white photographers of Life Magazine and the earlier Farm Security Administration. Though many of these photographers documented the horrors of war and the plight of poverty, they also showed me the dignity and adaptability of human beings in their desire to prevail.
