Summer is Just a Memory Now

Old farm swings, Lodi, OH

As I look out the window on this rainy day and absorb the reality of cold rain, balding trees, and piles of wet leaves covering the ground, I’m imagining the restful summer day I spent with friends back in July on one of their family’s old farm homestead in Lodi, OH.  If you’ve been following my blog you might remember the posting, “A Peaceful Day on the Farm“, where I posted some restful photos of an amazing day.  The following post showed some additional photos converted to Black and White.

Today I went back to the digital folder holding those images and pulled up a couple more photos from that day, just to remind me of that pleasant, warm summer day.  The photo above was in the backyard of the farmhouse with two old swings hanging from a large Oak tree.  The following photo is of the front door of the farmhouse.

The weathered paint, wreath and American flags suggest many seasons past to me.  Seems appropriate for a day when I’m thinking about the most recent season past!

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.
