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.
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!
