Indiana Farms in Spring: Metal Silos

I loaded up the Hasselblad with some Portra film a few weeks ago in search of interesting rural scenes. I drove around in Johnson County for a bit and found myself at the edge of a corn field. I set up my tripod and snapped this photograph in the dying moments of dusk. I have no idea if these...

First Signs of Spring: Part Two

As I mentioned last week, spring has finally sprung and we are seeing our trees, yard and landscaping come alive. The clouds, light and the large tree with the buds contrasting with the sky compelled me to stop the yard work I was doing and grab the camera and tripod. The interruption was...

Shooting Architecture in Columbus

A few weeks ago I set off for an adventure to take in a few of the sights of Columbus, Indiana. I just got the film back from the lab and wanted to share a few of my favorites. My adventure began by making my way to the charming Welcome Center to pick up a few brochures and a map of the city...

The Pup Turns Seven

Yesterday our wonderful pup, Bolivar, celebrated his seventh birthday. He had a few extra treats and chased a few extra squirrels (or so he told me). He still has nearly boundless energy and loves to play. He is a great dog and a wonderful family member. I snapped this photo on Saturday while...
