Last Friday I was able to get back on the football field to shoot our high school football team. Last year I was at every game to see my son play. This year, because of scheduling conflicts, I hadn’t been able to attend any games until last Friday. It was such a pleasure being on the field again, even though my son wasn’t playing. It did make me a tiny bit sad when a player ran onto the field wearing the number he wore last year, well maybe more nostalgic than sad. But it was great being on the sidelines, with the regulars there, along with the tension, action and screaming that is part of a football sideline. I enjoy hustling around trying to capture the plays and rooting when they do well. Our team had brand new jerseys to give them momentum for the big game. They didn’t fare too well in the end, but it was a good game!! And what would a football game be without the fabulous cheerleaders? And ours are fantastic. Go Wreckers!
There is something visually pleasing looking along a fence. Especially when the fence is bordering a pretty farm on a picturesque fall day. These images bring up many memories of growing up with my cousins and squeezing through or walking along these very fences, with cows or horses in the fields they separate. The animals aren’t around anymore but the fields and views are just as beautiful as they ever were.
Sometimes it’s hard for me to actually change my images into black and white, while other times I’ll picture a scene and know immediately that it will be perfect in black and white. Some of the images below fall into each of those categories, but I decided to do all of them in black and white for this post. I actually think the look of black and white works for the old feel of the barn and its surroundings. But at the same time, it was a beautiful fall day, so the color appeals to me as well. I guess I’m just indecisive, except in that I love taking pictures of this farm!
Walking through the barns on my family’s farm is fascinating. The look and feel of the interiors is right out of a story from decades ago. The first images are from the barn where the cows were milked, the other is where the tools are stored. I could spend all day there shooting pictures!
Autumn is such a wonderful time for outdoor portraits. These are from this past weekend and and have such beautiful colors all around. Plus the subject is pretty adorable too! 🙂
We have had a beautiful fall here in New England. Lots of warm temperatures, clear blue skies and beautiful leaves. Yesterday was a gorgeous day and I just had to get out and photograph some fall scenes. These are taken at Devil’s Den, a nature preserve in Connecticut.
These crisp, damp mornings create lots of dew, which is always interesting to photograph. After donning my rain boots, I can venture out and see what my macro lens finds. Enjoy the fall!
